T-Mobile becomes first carrier in US to sell Nexus 9 LTE tablet

T-Mobile has kept its promise and has started offering the LTE version of the HTC-made Google Nexus 9 tablet now. It is selling the 32GB version of the slate at the previously revealed price of $599, but if you’re short on cash you can grab it for $0 and keep paying $25 monthly instalments for 2 years straight in order to cover your purchase.

T-Mobile had made it clear in November itself that that the Nexus 9 will be knocking on its doorstep this month. Apart from the magenta carrier, US buyers can also go for an AT&T model, which according to Engadget, can be activated by purchasing the LTE variant through the Play store.
