Pretty good deal considering it is rumored that they are keeping the N9 as the flagship tablet this year.

What has that got to do with it? You mean it's okay cause there won't be an update to this one device this year? That's odd reasoning. Anyhow, this is $150 overpriced. You can get solid 8-9 inch tablets for way less.

Poor build quality, too little memory to be useful and way overpriced for an old model.

I hated mine, so beware! The memory issues and build quality... plus bleeding, then some heat issues make this a tricky sell. You're better saving for a tablet with 3-4GB RAM at this price...

I don't see the issue here? 2GB of RAM is not enough for an android tablet? Build quality seems fine. My point earlier was that Google is using this tablet as its focus again this year, so essentially it is current gen. The Tegra 4 is a solid performer. I don't know of many tablets that have 3 and 4GB of RAM. Cheap tablets typically have 512-1GB. Mid-High range are 2-3GB.

I personally wouldn't pay more than $150 for a tablet, but for those who want a high end gaming tablet and have been eyeing the Nexus 9 for its dev community and longevity, this is a good price point. With it going another round with Google this year, I am sure the price will be steady.

2GB is insufficient for this resolution + 64-bit OS, but there's also the issue of the DCO eating 1/6th of the RAM according to Anandtech's analysis of the N9/K1. They did an excellent job of detailing the flaws with the SoC Nvidia built.

Also you can visit XDA or watch reviews where people comment on heat, lag, redraw, boot loop after updating to 5.1.1, and so on. The build quality is certainly questionable on early models, where the light bleed is nasty and the buttons are flush with the housing. shake head

I am a Recognized Developer over at XDA. I haven't heard anything but good things about the N9 and K1. I know there were common bootloops associated with one of the early lollipop builds that was not connected with the N9, it happened across all devices.

First I heard of the build quality issues. The N9 was supposed to be a premium tablet, I wouldn't expect screen bleed and stuff. Good to know. I haven't followed the N9 but simply commenting on the price and that it will be this years tablet again (no 2015 Nexus Tablets)

Besides customer reviews on Amazon or YouTube, you can see that others have issues here.

After reading these tell me if you still find the N9 to be a good buy.
