Google's Nexus 9 tablet went on sale six months ago, just a few weeks after it was unveiled as one of the showcase devices for Android 5.0 Lollipop. But in the months that followed, the tablet received just one OS update, bumping it up to version 5.0.1, until earlier this week, when the 5.0.2 update arrived.
But today, Google announced that it will begin rolling out Android 5.1 to the HTC-made tablet, three months after that OS version first became available on various Android One devices. Other devices, like the HTC One M7 and M8 Google Play editions, have also received Android 5.1 in recent weeks.
Although the over-the-air rollout of the update has begun today, it won't necessarily be available everywhere at the same time, so if it's not yet showing up on your Nexus 9, don't panic - just give it some time.
And if you haven't yet purchased a Nexus 9, those in the UK can now get their hands on the device with a sizeable discount, as two leading retailers are currently selling it for only £199.99 for a (very) limited time - that's a good deal less than the £319 that Google is asking for it.
