Instead, its supposed to be just a model Google hopes other Android tablet makers will follow when they build the upcoming iPad killer, according to Engadget. FROM EARLIER: New video gives us a fantastic up-close look at the Nexus 9 We wanted to accelerate the premium market for Android tablets, head of Nexus 9 industrial design Alberto Villarreal told the publication. [The Nexus 9] has a lot of attributes and definitely will bring the quality for other companies to do better. Build quality is apparently the reason why HTC was chosen for this particular task. We saw the One and really liked how their designs were very simple, focused on usability and removed things that didnt need to be there, Villarreal added. They have nice craft and precision details and materials. The exec also explained the Nexus 9 is also supposed to be sort-of a fashion statement at least when it comes to color options, as the company decided its time to be moving away from technology-driven black and silver, which is very common in the industry, and trying to bring more of a fashion look to the portfolio. Even though Google now wants to encourage its partners to create premium tablets to rival the iPad Air 2, after pushing affordable ones in previous years, other OEMs might not have timely access to one critical piece of the puzzle. As expected for a Nexus device, the hardware and software teams worked closely on the Nexus 9.

The Lions couldn't seem to stop Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense, and Matthew Stafford was clearly playing at a disadvantage without Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush . Trailing 21-0 at the end of the half, the Lions had to make something happen. The Lions took over the game in the second half. The Falcons offense was collapsing, and Stafford and company took advantage of it. With 1:38 left in the game, Stafford and the offense only trailing 21-19. What was once a lopsided game in favor of the Falcons became lopsided in favor of the Lions in the second half.
