Google's Nexus 9 tablet has been discontinued

Just days after the end of the Nexus Player, Google is saying goodbye to another piece of hardware: the Nexus 9. CNET reports that HTC, which collaborated on and manufactured the flagship tablet, said it has ceased building new units of the Nexus 9. That means it'll disappear from stores as stock runs out — if it hasn't already.

The Nexus 9's discontinuation isn't a huge surprise. The tablet was growing old — it was introduced in 2014 — and was never particularly popular. The two other products Google launched alongside the Nexus 9, the Nexus 6 and Nexus Player, have also been discontinued, so it was really just a matter of time.

With the Nexus 9 gone, Google is left selling one tablet: the Pixel C. It didn't get much love either, but it could get a lot more interesting once Android N is out.
