12 Best Nexus 9 Accessories

Now that Google’s new HTC Nexus 9 tablet has been available for a little over two months we’re starting to see more and more accessories and cases finally arrive. Google released their own case on the Play Store last month, and many third party manufacturers have excellent alternatives without breaking the bank. Here we rundown a few of the best Nexus 9 accessories worth buying.

Google’s Nexus 9 was announced back in October and released on November 3rd as the first device running the all new Android 5.0 Lollipop software update. It’s an impressive tablet wrapped with an aluminum frame, and like most smartphones and tablets, many buyers are looking for cases and covers, stands and other accessories.

There’s only one official case or accessory so far from HTC and Google, and that is the Nexus 9 Magic Cover and Origami folding case available on the Play Store or from HTC.com, but that isn’t the only option available. Below is a roundup of some of your best options when it comes to Nexus 9 protection, a few good accessories you’ll want to buy, as well as longer charging cables and more.

Nexus9-more

Sadly Nexus smartphones and tablets don’t have quite the 3rd party support as something like the iPhone 6 or Galaxy S5, so there aren’t as many options available for those with a Nexus 9. That being said, there’s still a few accessory makers paying attention to Google’s latest tablet that have released some good stuff.

At the same time, many accessories are device agnostic and will work with any smartphone and tablet. And that’s where the benefit is. Being able to get Bluetooth accessories, wireless keyboards, docks or stands, speakers and more. With these roundup we try to keep most accessories to an affordable price, and not go crazy, so check out our slideshow below to get a better idea of what’s available for your tablet.

HTC Magic Cover

HTC Magic Cover

The HTC Magic Cover is the only official accessory for the Nexus 9, aside from the keyboard case that was released earlier this month. HTC and Google are offering it in four different colors, and this is likely the best case available. It's also the most expensive on our list, being $39.99, but Amazon has it for $34 once they get it in stock. 

The Magic cover is a magnetic attachment cover that can be attached to the front or back of the tablet and the cover can fold into two stand positions, the upright position for viewing and low or lying position for typing. The front offers protection, or simply use the magnet to attack it to the rear and use it as a stand.

There's also a flap that folds down where the camera lens is, and when folded down will automatically launch the Nexus 9's 8 megapixel camera app. It also supports automatic screen wakeup and sleep when the cover is removed from front side. It's available in four colors: Black, Coral, Limestone, and Mint Indigo Green.
