    Like we said earlier, it's apparently a super-tablet news-day, and it continues with another Nexus 9 story. This one is not too pretty though, and in fact, could end up being Google's equivalent of Apple's #bendgate. In the animated version of the image above (shown in the thread below), the outer casing on the new HTC-made Google Nexus 9 tablet appears to be very bendable, allowing its user to easily push it inward with gentle pressure.

    Considering this is supposed to be a "premium" device, it's a bit disconcerting to see this. According to the report, the tablet pops itself back into place very easily, so it's at least not as bad as what some iPhone 6 Plus users are experiencing. Still, it's disappointing to see something like this make it through manufacturing. If you have the Nexus 9, let us know if you experienced this too.
