NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Nexus 9 is a tablet computer co-developed by Google (GOOG) and HTC that runs the next-generation of Android operating system software and is thin, lightweight, fast and gorgeous.
The new Nexus 9 measures 9 by 6 by 0.31 inches and weighs less than a pound. It has an 8.9-inch touchscreen - the size made popular by Apple (AAPL) iPads. The Nexus 9's display is a IPS liquid crystal display design with a 4:3 aspect ratio, 2048 by 1536 pixels (281 pixels-per-inch) and is protected by the latest generation of Corning (GLW) Gorilla Glass. Great-sounding, forward-facing stereo speakers grace the touchscreen top and bottom.

Inside there's a 2.3 GHz, 64-bit NVIDIA (NVDA) Tegra K1 (Dual Denver) processor mated to 2 GB of RAM, a 192-core (NVIDIA) Keplar graphics processor, and either 16GB or 32 GB of internal storage. There's an 8MP, autofocus camera with LED flash on the back and a fast 1.6 MP camera facing forward.
The Nexus 9 comes with high-speed 802.11ac Wi-fi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and GPS radios inside, standard now for most tablets. In addition, the 4G version of the Nexus 9 (like its cousin the upcoming Nexus 6 phablet) can also connect to any U.S. GSM/CDMA/HSPA/LTE network which means it'll work on any of the major carriers -- AT&T (T) , Sprint (S) , T-Mobile (TMUS) and Verizon (VZ) -- with the proper SIM card. Google says the big 6,700 mAh rechargeable battery is good for as much as 8.5 hours of LTE browsing and 9.5 hours using Wi-fi or watching videos and standby time is estimated to last 30 days.
