I am hoping this means "until the next product refresh", but for now the N7 is no longer available through Google.

I still love it, the old one didn't have back camera an Qi. I'll skip the 9, as it too big. Maybe consider, go nexus 6 way, instead of 2 devices...

Google might introduce a Nexus 7 ( 2015 ) or similar Tablet soon ? It seems that the Nexus 9 was not a huge success after all ?

Probably because it is bloody expensive for what it is, and fails to offer features found on similarly priced units. It has a lower resolution display (pixels per inch) than the N7, no SD card slot like nearly every other tablet in its price range, no wireless charging, etc. and it costs more than a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1!

The whole attraction to the Nexus 7 was that it was a very good tablet at a very good price. Even at the $229 I paid for mine new over a year ago, I felt it was a solid deal - enough that I could live with the few restrictions (like no SD card slot). At today's prices, it is a fantastic deal.

The Nexus 9? Not so much. At that price point, the stuff that got left off is more embarrassing.
