    These are the U.S. MSRP Prices

    Nexus 9
    16GB - $399
    32Gb - $479

    New Fire HDX 8.9 Without Special Offers (With Special Offers)
    16GB - $394 ($379)
    32GB - $444 ($429)
    64GB - $494 ($479)

    IPad Air
    16GB - $399
    32GB - $449

    IPad Air 2
    16GB - $499
    64GB - $599

    Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (8.4)
    16GB - $499 ($399)
    32GB - $549 (N/A)

    All the other competitors of Google price the jump from 16GB to 32GB at $50. For some of the devices, the MSRP of their base model is $100 more than that of the Nexus 9. And the Nexus 9 has a variety of advantages in performance of other devices that start off at the $399 price point: (1) HDX - Ecosystem; (2) iPad Air - Older model, Ecosystem; (3) Galaxy Tab S 8.4 - Smaller screen.

    I personally would have jumped all over a Nexus 9 with 64GB of storage at $499, but have to settle for 32GB at $479.

    Would be nice for a 64GB version or lower price 32GB version. However, don't forget to try some of the possible savings methods. I noticed my Discover has 5% off Best Buy online purchases (says not for laptops or desktops, so possibly still works for tablets?). Also, my bank credit card offer of $150 back on $500 spent. Check around, you may find a better way to save on a purchase like this.

    The delta seem fine and reasonable. I am not going to worry about $30.

    I ordered it

    Granted I was surprised at the price jump between the 16gb and 32gb model (I was expecting a standard $50 price jump), but whatever.

    Shame Australia wasn't offered the LTE model, because I would have gotten that.
