LTE-ready Nexus 9 is now up at T-Mobile, AT&T and Google Play

Nexus 9 Google HTC
$10 gets you another pool of data for your tablet

T-Mobile said today that it's the first carrier to launch the LTE version of HTC's Nexus 9 tablet, but AT&T wasn't far behind.

The un-carrier is offering the Nexus 9 online via its Underground store for its usual scheme of $0 down and a monthly fee spread out over two years - in this case $24.99, for a total of $599.76. On top of that they'll let you add the Nexus 9 to an existing Simple Choice plan for $10 per month, matching your existing data up to 5GB for use specifically on the tablet.

And naturally the Nexus 9 is also eligible for T-Mobile's 200MB per month "free data for life" deal.

AT&T and Google Play too

AT&T meanwhile wants users to spend the full $600 on their LTE Nexus 9, with a meager $100 bill credit for those who grab a two-year contract too. But its data plans, too, start at $10 per month.

Lastly Google Play also put the LTE Nexus 9 up for sale today, so if you don't mind paying full price and you don't want to be locked to a carrier then that's probably the way to go.

The HTC-built Nexus 9 is a beast of a tablet, with Android 5.0 Lollipop, an 8.9-inch display and a Tegra K1 chip.
