Google's first midsize tablet

At a demo of its Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system, Google showed off its newest gadgets.

In addition to the Nexus 6 smartphone, the Google Nexus 9 tablet made a cordial debut. It doesn't pack any high-end gimmicks -- like a fingerprint scanner or 3D camera -- but the 8.9-inch tablet manages to impress without them.

Another sweet release

If the tablet looks familiar, but different, that's because you're taking a look at the new Android operating system. The Nexus 9 ships preloaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop and houses a powerful Nvidia Tegra K1 CPU.

Slim and thin

Though Google quietly introduced the Nexus 9 tablet with little fanfare, the tablet houses some powerful specs and a thin design that will definitely give today's top tablets a run for their money.

A bevy of bezels

The top and bottom bezels of the tablet are noticeably thicker than the ones on its sides. The Nexus 9 also rocks a 4:3 aspect ratio, a rare sight on a tablet.
