A lot of us are familiar with spending $300 or more on a big ticket item, and later feeling like it was a waste of time and money. At $399/£319, this feeling rings true for most who picked up HTC’s sub-par Nexus 9. However, would it be a waste of money to you if it were £199/$300?
That’s how much you can pick up the tablet for at UK-based retailers John Lewis and PC World. This is the biggest price drop we’ve seen since the tablet released, if not the only price drop. Even with the price drop, there’s still something you have to decide.
