  1. Along with the new Motorola-made Nexus 6, Google pulled a couple more hardware announcements this morning with a new 8.9-inch tablet and a streaming media player that marks. The latter is the first Android TV device since the company revealed...

    Wow, google is really missing the mark with the nexus 9 tablet. Wrong price point. No incentive to buy.

    $400 for an 8.9" 16GB model? That sounds too much. For $80 more you can get the Galaxy S tab with a larger screen and higher resolution from Amazon.

    Nice way to price yourself out of the market, Google. The Nexus player, however, does look interesting.

    I just started looking for a tablet and like the size but not thrilled about the price. The 7" tablets feel a bit small and the 10" a bit large....

    Yeah but then again it does have some impressive specs. If it has 32GB of storage and an SD card slot it would make sense. The Tegra K1 probably raises the price.

    The Nexus TV thing sounds interesting but I will wait till the Apple TV reveal on Thurs to determine.
     
  6. Wow...That Nexus 9 is a dud where I'm concerned. It's almost the price of an iPad. If I have to pay that much, I'd rather pay a little more and get an iPad instead simply because the ecosystem for tablet optimized apps is about a billion times better on iOS. Okay, maybe not a billion, but I can definitely see a difference in tablet optimized app quality when I compare my iPad with the Nexus 7 that my wife is using.

    The only thing that interested me about this launch was Android Lollipop. The other stuff I couldn't care less about.

    This thing has a Nvidia K1 in it. it will put any ipad to sleep.
     
  9. Looks like the death of the non work PC isgradually approaching. Biggerz screens and better proc and well optimised apps. Its all coming together.
