It's been a while since we last had a large Nexus slate and even longer since HTC went anywhere near a tablet, yet here we are with the HTC made Nexus 9.

It was worth the wait too, thanks to a powerful 64-bit processor, BoomSound speakers, a long lasting battery and the promise of speedy Android updates.

It's found itself a fairly unique size point too at 8.9 inches. Too big to be considered a small or even medium sized tablet, but some way smaller than the 10.1-inch Android slates that there are so many of. Whether that's a good or bad thing is subjective but it certainly helps it stand out. Google has stopped selling the slate to make room for the Pixel C, but it can still be found if you shop around.
