Google has now made the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player, available for pre-orders. Nexus Player, after a few hitches at the FCC clearance table, crossed that hurdle successfully today.
It seems Nexus Player’s FCC clearance was the only thing, which was holding back the pre-orders for both the devices. And though it was speculated that the pre-orders may still take time to come up, Google has surprised everyone by putting the devices, up for pre-orders, in such a short span.
Google announced the pre-orders via a tweet :

Pre-orders for Nexus 6 will start on October 29th.
