Richard has a Google Nexus 9 and signed up for the beta program for Google N, but he can't get past Google. Has be bricked it? Leo says no, he can't really brick it that way. Leo says to go into recovery mode and back out of it. He'll also have to wipe his data and cache. Richard will have to download the drivers, do an ADB, and then download and install the Nexus 9 image. He can also try reinstalling the N Dev again, since maybe it was a bad download.

Leo says that the Google tablets would be updated first, but frankly, it seems that Google's Nexus 7 and 9 have been somewhat abandoned with no updates in the last few years. He's concerned, though, that he won't be able to use LTE on AT&T. Leo says he'll want to make sure it shares the same band as AT&T supports. The Google Nexus 9 does support every frequency but 700mhz. Leo says that was a recent development and it's what he'll want.
Brant's tablet died and he's debating getting either the Nvidia Shield or Google Nexus 9. Leo says Brant should definitely go with the Nvidia Shield. It's super fast, great for gaming, and Leo thinks it's better than the Nexus 9. But Nexus 9 does have Lollipop. That's the advantage of having a pure Google tablet -- he'll be the first to get updates. But everyone loves the Shield, and it's less expensive.
