Google has revealed its latest attempt to steal the tablet crown from the iPad. It’s called the Nexus 9, it’s a slightly funny shape, and it’s the first tablet to sport the 64-bit ARM Tegra K1.

The 9 has a 4:3 aspect ratio, and a near-as-dammit nine inch screen with a resolution of 2048x1536. That swanky processor runs at 2.3GHz, and is backed up by 2GB of RAM.

There’s an 8MP camera on the back, a 1.6MP camera on the front, and a choice between 16GB or 32GB worth of storage.

The whole kaboodle has been put together by HTC, and you can buy a folding keyboard accessory to go with it.

The tablet comes in three different colours. There’s white, there’s black, and there’s one that the PR will probably call 'burnished gold' that looks a lot like the hue of a bad korma.

Preorders for the Nexus 9 go live on October 17th, and apparently it’ll be out on November 3rd. The 16GB version will set you back $399, the 32GB version $479, and apparently there’ll be an LTE enabled 32GB model for $599.
