The tablet is also the first 64-bit Nexus device and will be able to take advantage of the 64-bit ready Android 5.0 OS. The tablet is available in 16GB selling for $399 and 32GB for $479. If you buy from Best Buy, you may be able to drive down to the local store for pickup and have the tablet the day you order.
