    Amazon is having a pretty decent sale on the Google Nexus 9 tablet. Both the 16GB and 32GB versions are on sale for $50 off. This makes the 16GB Nexus 9 only $349.99, while the 32GB version is $429.99. This includes both colored versions of the device (white and black).

    At this price, the new Nexus 9 compares favorably to just about any other Android tablet on the market. Here are some links below to grab these deals:
    We aren't sure how long this sale will last, so you may want to hurry! Sound off and let us know if you have this tablet and what you think of it.

    Does anyone know when this might be released in the 4G LTE version, and not just WiFi-only?

    Nope, says "Pre-order only" :-(

    Your point about carriers is also a good one. A Verizon sales tech told me that he didn't think they would be allowed to activate the Nexus 6 or 9's on their network (although I hear the older 7's can be!).

    I went ahead and took a chance on a third one. The first two I bought from Amazon were from before HTC made changes to their build quality, been a few weeks, hopefully they have gone through all that old stock.

    Best Buy is also having a sale on its 16gb Nexus 9. $100 dollars off. Apparently it's only going on for 4 hours today so you'll have to act fast. (11am -3pm Central time) Details here. 4 Hour Sale
    (both are the Wi-Fi version)
    $299.99 for the 16gb
    $379.99 for the 32gb
    (50 bucks less than Amazon's great offer that stormy posted in the OP)

    Not bad, if my Nexus 10 were not tops with 5.1, I'd look into this.

    What I hate is how much they charge for these things... An extra 16gb of memory costs $100... really?

    You can buy 128GB for that... It is a total ripoff what they charge for 32gb, which when you don't have an SD slot, should be the absolute minimum for a tablet...

    I am tempted, but I think I will hold off a couple months and see how the second gen Shield Tablet looks, when it comes out with the X1 chip... That should finally bring desktop performance to the tablet...
