Google's Nexus 9 tablet is out this week. Should you buy one? Judging by the first round of reviews, shopping around for another tablet may be a good idea.
While reviewers seem relatively happy with the device's 2048x1536 display, stock Android 5.0 operating system, and battery life, they complain about poor performance, excessive heat when running demanding apps, and a number of fit-and-finish issues—including backlight leakage and a plastic back that apparently bends when you press down on it.
The verdict is unanimously lukewarm. Take a look:
Oh well. At least the Nexus 7 2013 is still available—for now. You can grab it for $199.99 at Newegg, and an Android 5.0 update is on the way.
