The Nexus 9 first went on sale in the UK last week, with Google promising that those who pre-order the Android 5.0 tablet will have their order dispatched on 3 November.
While most models are still available at the Google Play Store, the online shop is now showing the 32GB Black model as sold out, with users no longer available it. Instead, shoppers are greeted with the message: “We are out of stock. Please check back soon.”
The 32GB White model is still available to buy, and those after a 16GB Nexus 9 can pick it up in both Black and White with a 3 November shipping date. Google has yet to start taking pre-orders for the sand-coloured model, nor that with included 4G LTE.
Amazon has sold out of its first batch of Nexus 9 tablets, too. Last week, the firm started taking pre-orders with a promised dispatch date of 3 November, but this has since slipped to 15 December for all models of the Google-branded tablet.
While this suggests that Nexus 9 has seen a large number of pre-orders in the UK, there’s also a chance that Google is suffering from a shortage of stock. We have put the question to it.
In terms of specs, the Nexus 9 gives Apple’s latest iPads a run for their money, touting an 8.9in 2048×1536 IPS display, a 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 chip and 2GB RAM.
The HTC-built device also features dual 8MP and 1.6MP cameras and a 6,700mAh battery, and is the first tablet to run Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop software, equipping it with a refreshed design, default encryption, Samsung’s Knox security suite and a battery saving mode.
