Nexus 9 video review

I just spent a few days traveling with HTC’s brand new Nexus 9. It’s definitely the best Android tablet I’ve ever used, and Lollipop is absolutely wonderful. Here’s my video review!

The 8.9-inch IPS display looks gorgeous, and the stereo BoomSound speakers are terrific. NVIDIA’s 64-bit Tegra K1 is super fast, and battery life appears to be holding up so far.
