Nexus 9: A Worthy Choice Over iPad Mini 3 and iPad Air 2

Earlier Apple unveiled the new iPad lineup: the iPad Mini 3 and iPad Air 2. But before the said Apple special event, another tablet has been announced that can go toe-to-toe with the much favored iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, and it is not made by Apple. That tablet is called Google Nexus 9 and it is made by HTC. With its size of 8.9" and resolution of 2048x1536 (281ppi), Nexus 9 sits right in between 7.9" iPad Air 2 and 9.7" iPad Mini 3. Here is a quick comparison of between the three tablets:

Display
Nexus 9 has 8.9" display with 2048x1536 (326ppi) resolution.
iPad Air 2 has 9.7" display with 2048x1536 (264ppi) resolution.
iPad Mini 3 has 7.9" display with 2048x1536 (326ppi) resolution.

RAM
Nexus 9 has 2GB RAM while the new iPads both have 1GB RAM.

Storage
Nexus 9 is available in 16GB and 32GB. On the other hand, both new iPad models will be available in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB variants.

Camera
Nexus 9 and iPad Air 2 have the same 8MP, f/2.4 rear camera while iPad Mini 3 has 5MP, f/24 camera. For selfie, both iPad models have 1.2MP shooter while Nexus 9 has a better 1.6MP, f2.4 front camera.

Battery
The three tablets have almost the same capacity, Nexus 9 can last up to 9.5 hours while the new iPad models can last 10 hours.

Fingerprint Scanner
This is a bummer for Nexus 9 because HTC forgot to include this must have feature while both iPad models have fingerprint scan support.

Weight
Nexus 9 (425g) is lighter when compared to iPad Air 2 (444g) but heavier when compared to iPad Mini 3 (341g)

Still the thinness of all tablet
