    Doubt it. The Nexus 9 uses a different CPU paired with it's K1 than the Shield Tablet's K1, a 64-bit "Denver" processor, which was originally going to be a friggin desktop CPU. It's got twice the IPS of the Shield Tablet's A15, as well, meaning it'll be able to perform more operations quicker than the Shield Tablet's CPU.

    What about the game compability? Nvidia ported some games like Portal and Half Life 2 for the older Nvidia Shield. I doubt they'll do that to the Nexus 9.

    Probably not officially, but both Portal and Half Life have been unofficially ported to other devices, and seeing how the Nexus 9 will have a Tegra K1, it'll be able to play them without having to use any huge workarounds like other SoCs need.

    I can say that this is one of the most tempting phones I have come across. Curse my frugal budget at the moment! I am just thankful my Moto G (2013) is getting the update to 5.0

    Any price on the nexus 9 (I seem to be the only one interested in the one that's not a piece of toast that makes calls)
