Nexus 9 vs iPad Air 2 (Android Police)

6

Hey Googleplexers.

I would like to share this comparison article written by David Ruddock on Android Police (If you haven't already read it).

Nexus 9 vs iPad Air 2

Most of what he mentions is probably already well-known by most, but what interested me was his conclusion that he didn't feel like he got value for money for either the Nexus 9 or the iPad Air 2, but goes on to admit that the iPad is still the gold standard in tablets.

It feels to me like Google got stuck in between creating a high end tablet to compete with the iPad whilst trying to keep it priced reasonably by skimping on certain things. This entire Nexus launch has felt rather rushed and badly coordinated. I do wonder if Google bit off more than they can chew by taking on the iPad Air 2 on it's own turf, especially with a tablet as sloppy as the Nexus 9.

I just hope they read the reviews and release a more focused product next time around and perhaps give it a little more time in the oven.
