Im interested to see what LTE bands it will support.  They were very general with the Network specs on the tableb, where the Nexus 6 specifically called out the bands.

I agree that the N9 appears to be lacking in the details department.

Well that is a huge mistake on HTC's part. I figured Qi was a Google requirement on Nexus devices.

I am guessing it has something to do with the metal back.

Nobody will see the back when I put a protective case on it.  So to me, using metal is really not important.  I guess to others, it is.

Were the rumors on the SD card support true? That will be the only thing to get me to upgrade from my Nexus 7.

Not true. No SD card support.

I am still using a 4:3 laptop @ 1600x1200.

 

Widescreen suck for actual work on a computer and it is impossible to find a 4:3 laptop anymore.

Whose great idea was it to turn the next Nexus tablet into an iPad mini clone?  If that is what we wanted, we would buy an iPad mini.

 

Sheesh...

Agreed. Screw that. I'm buying the Nexus 7 (2013) that I have so far held back on. No, thanks, HTC.

I am glad that the screen is more squared off reason I liked the passport as much as I do video consumption I do a lot of reading as well. I already have my one max at a wide screen ratio. I like this configuration on the nexus 9 for a wider range of consumption this makes since too me... I do like a lot. I'll get the base model and get a USB drive to go along with it.

Upon further reflection, I will withhold my judgment of the Nexus 9 until the LTE version is released.  If it supports both band 12 and band 41, has solid RF performance, includes engineering screens, and runs SignalCheck Pro, then I will consider it.

Shows Sprint on the pre-order section. Now if only they showed what bands they use...

I just noticed it said CDMA in the specs. Pretty sure it didn't say that yesterday. I don't see anywhere where it says Sprint pre-order for the Nexus 9.

No CDMA 1x/EVDO. International version of the Nexus 9 tablet. Hopefully the North American version shows up soon. I found it last night on the FCC OET site.

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

      Only specs I've really seen leaked are 5.7" screen and based on the unannounced "Mate 8" model.
       
      From http://www.breathecast.com/articles/nexus-2015-rumors-news-leaked-video-reveals-specs-of-purported-2015-huawei-nexus-video-30407/
       
       
       
       
       
       
       

      The Mate 7 had a 4100+mah battery, speculation is that this could have the same or bigger.
       
      Anything passed through the FCC for a US and/or Sprint version that covers the Spark bands?  I'm in the market for a new phone this fall and will be going off contract, buying a Nexus.

      With the FCC and Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon have agreed to this new unlocking policy. How does this effect sprint phones such as the IPhone. I have heard that Sprint can unlock your phone but you can not take it to other carriers such as Verizon and the IPhone can only be used overseas.  (Correct me if I am wrong). I am glad that this has finally happened. But when it comes to Sprint how would this work?

      I just got back from a trip to Canada with my Nexus 5.  After reviewing my options I decided to go the local prepaid sim card route.  I went with Petro-Canada which is offering a $5 micro sim with a minimum of a $15 top up to the account.  I then used $10 of the account balance for an allocation of 100MB of data.  Each additional MB after the 100 is only $0.10 too so there is no penalty for running over.  The only gotcha I ran into, being new to gsm/umts, was the need to program the APN settings.  Petro-Canada doesn't make it entirely clear either.  Well at least it wasn't for me.  They have settings on their website but they are listed under MMS settings.  Anyway, once I got it working the Nexus performed well and I had plenty of data available for my short trip to the north.  The plan did not include any LTE connections but I was able to connect to HSPA+, as indicated by signal check, so my speeds were very good.  When I got back I swapped my Sprint sim back in and everything worked as expected.  So if you find yourself headed north, check out Petro-Canada.  It worked very well for me.
