Just in time for Christmas, Google’s Nexus 9 is on sale on retail store shelves in Australia. Telstra has the first of Google’s new Android 5.0 Lollipop devices in the country, so that’s the place to be if you want to buy one in store rather than online.
Powered by the same Nvidia Tegra K1 system-on-chip as the brilliant Nvidia Shield Tablet, the Nexus 9 is also available online through Google Play in both 16GB and 32GB variants, with the larger capacity also available with an integrated 4G modem at an additional cost. It’s in retail stores exclusively through Telstra, though, and has been since November 25.
Telstra has the 16GB tablet only, but thankfully you’re not paying a premium for it — the $479 in-store price is the same as via Google Play. If you want a 32GB model or 4G LTE, you’ll have to head online where you’ll pay $589 or $719 respectively. Both are available in Indigo Black and Lunar White.
