However, the Nexus Player won't ship for another 2 to 3 weeks

When Google announced its brand new Android 5.0 “Lollipop” mobile operating system last month, it also pulled the wraps off three brand new hardware devices. Two of those devices, the Nexus 9 and the Nexus Player, are now available to order from the Google Play Store.
 
As previously reported, the Nexus 9 features an 8.9” display with a resolution of 2048x1536 (in a 4:3 aspect ratio). The HTC-designed device is powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 processor paired with 2GB of RAM. Storage options are limited to 16GB or 32GB onboard, and there is no dedicated microSD slot for expansion, so choose wisely.

 Nexus 9
 
The aluminum body of the Nexus 9 is currently available in three colors: Indigo Black, Lunar White, and Sand. Pricing starts at $399 for a base 16GB Wi-Fi Nexus 9 and climb all the way up to $599 with 32GB and Wi-Fi+LTE.
 
Those who choose to purchase the Wi-Fi models of the Nexus 9 will see their order leave the warehouse in 1 to 2 business days. However, Wi-Fi+LTE models have no estimated arrival date and simply show “coming soon.”
 
As for the Nexus Player, it has also found its way to the Google Play Store, albeit it will ship within two to three weeks. The Nexus Player is n step up from the Chromecast, offering an all-in-one media streaming/gaming platform that can even be paired with a $40 gaming controller.
