T-Mobile has formally announced that the Google-HTC Nexus 9 tablet will finally be available on the carrier with LTE capability added to the device for T-Mobile users.
T-Mobile has started selling the Google-HTC Nexus 9 with LTE availability this week for the first time in the company’s history. However, while the tablet will definitely deliver a great experience for T-Mobile users – the company also introduced $100 unlimited everything for business users. This is a data plan that many had expected for some time, but due to release issues – was something that took time actually to execute. The plan includes unlimited voice, text, and data and for a cellular company outside of the major two – which are Verizon and AT&T – unlimited data plans have been a major selling point.
The Nexus 9 though is an incredible device for the value that it is packing with T-Mobile. While some have questioned what the battery life will look like with the LTE version – with T-Mobile, it would appear as though the 8.9-inch tablet will hold up just fine in the long run. The device features front-facing speakers, as well as two cameras and an impressive processor. It runs on the 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor that is known for its high-level performance, even with games and general function.
Customers will either be able to pay $24.99 a month to get their hands on the Google Nexus 9 made by HTC. That requires $0 down and is an agreement for 24 months. However, as with any of the “Monthly” cellular plans – that just means users can get out of the contract sooner than traditional two-year agreements. The other option is paying $599.76 for the device outright. While the price tag might seem a little high, the device is valued right given its availability on T-Mobile’s 4G LTE.
Overall, the message that T-Mobile is sending with this device and the new plan for business users is that they are taking their competition very seriously. While AT&T and Verizon have been top-of-the-class for a long period of time, and they probably won’t get any competition from T-Mobile specifically – they can definitely pose a threat to Sprint – who currently is watching their market share disappear in the United States. Without question though, this was a big week for the Nexus 9 – which should see a boost in its numbers thanks to T-Mobile’s addition of the LTE version.
