"Viruses. It is not viri, or (worse) virii. True, the word comes directly from Latin, but not all Latin words ending in -us have -i as their plural. Besides, viri is the Latin word for 'men' (plural of vir, 'man', the root of English virile)."

Could be a good Kali Linux NetHunter device...

Read the title upside down and thought it was a nexus 6 :-(

It is nice hardware, but Android does not really work well on a tablet. Most apps are "optimised for phones" only, and leave a lot of ugly free space on a tablet. That also applies to Google apps, especially since Lollipop.

Seriously, I would rather consider a Windows tablet (or an iPad mini).

iPad mini is worth the extra money, Android tablet apps are really poor compared to App Store.

Is this a good price for a Nexus 9 at the moment? I'm not sure, its probably much better if we ignore that and just have an apple/android debate instead, because that's really interesting and almost never happens around here....

Heat added, obviously. Though personally I'd rather go with Argos if I was buying one.

device itself is great but 16gb today is almost nothing. you'll get about 10gb free out of the box.

Nexus 7 (2nd gen) does all that I ask of it - apart from make the tea - so I can't see where you're coming from.

too right

I'm still using the Nexus 10. Running lollipop. Never had any issues running apps. I don't understand what you're on about. I play games, amongst many many other apps, about 50 installed and not had any problems. Can someone tell me what problems or apps they're having trouble with.

quality!

LOOOOOOP

how does it compare with other cheapo android octa cores tab, why spend quid for the expensive one?

I also have a Nexus 10 running Lollipop and it's excellent. I've not yet found a single app that I can't use.

Imo tablets with only this much storage will only be fit for a few people. After adding apps, music etc most would struggle.

I have quite a few Android tablets ranging from 7" to 10.5" and Android works perfectly fine on them with no layout issues (including the Google apps or even ones marked as "Designed for phones"). I do run CM 12.1 on them (aka Android 5.1.1) with the Apex launcher, but that doesn't affect what the app does when it's run.

I also have an HP Stream 7 (Windows tablet) and the user experience on that is terrible in its "tablet mode". It was so bad, I forced it into desktop mode on login (Classic Shell is your friend) and plugged in a mouse (and sometimes keyboard...a USB hub) if I'm doing something "serious" on it. Windows tablets have one advantage - you can run legacy Windows programs on them. If you're primarily a Linux user like me though who doesn't have legacy Win cruft to run, Android completely wins hands down if you're talking about the actual tablet experience.

When you go to a non-coffee drinking country in SE Asia sometime Starbucks is quite a life saver.
I went to HK once & couldn't find any coffee shops in the area I stayed in, so had to go to Starbucks. Things may have changed since that time in HK.

When I was in Beijing I was craving coffee, walked past a Starbucks, popped my head in and quickly left when a coffee was the same price as 2 nights accommodation.

As for the Nexus 9... great price! can't justify one at the moment as my Nexus 7 (2013) is still going strong!

Not just that the etiology (derivation of the word) is wrong its from the work for poison as a virus can pass through a bacterial filter so the Victorians concluded no life could be that small, and exist without cells hence the name. Oh the origin of the word pre-date Latin (cognates: Sanskrit visam "poison," visah "poisonous;")

This is a superb tablet very high spec screen. I've the old Nexus 10 and these new units are way better than the old Nexus 10 and most tablets in this space / price point.

1) Better made- This is a high end android device so its not fair to compare the price with mid range / low end units (e.g all metal)
2) Much better spec, (front firing speakers are better than most) and generally the components (audio etc) are top spec.
3) Screen is rather good too (4:3 good for non movies, but the resolution is so high 16:9 runs fine full res)
4) 64-bit version of the Nvidia Tegra K1
5) Don't believe all the old reviews that talk about software issues etc these are fixed with the official updates.

The screen is 4:3 and killer resolution unheard of at this price point. Only slight concern may be the lack of onboard storage but a OTG cable (99p eBay) or one of the many OTG/USB thumb drives are an option.

I don't have a Nexus 7, so I can't comment on that, but maybe it has to do with the size? A lot of the new Google apps just don't look good on a 10" screen.

I think his point was that it isn't a real word.
