T-Mobile announced today that it’s now selling Google’s latest HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet for $0 down or $600. As noted by T-Mobile, this will be the first place you can officially get the LTE version of the Nexus 9 through a US carrier. However, Google Play will also soon be selling the LTE Neuxs 9. 

The tablet, which previously went on sale through Google and other retailers since being announced in October, includes an 8.9-inch 2,048 x 1,536 IPS display, a 2.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, a 192-core Kepler GPU, a 6,700 mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop. While T-Mobile is the first US carrier to offer the LTE Nexus 9, last month the device passed through the FCC revealing LTE band support for Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, in addition to T-Mobile.

The $600 price point is a $120 premium compared to $479 for the 32GB non-LTE version of the tablet through Google Play. T-Mobile will also let you get it for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $25.

Google Play is now listing the LTE version of the tablet as “Coming soon”.

As always, T-Mobile will let customers add the tablet to a Simple Choice plan for $10 a month.The tablet will also come with 200 MB of free data a month through the carrier’s Free Data for Life tablet initiative.
