Look, I know you’ve been eyeing the Nexus 9 and that you really want one, but that $400 price tag might be a little too intimidating for the 64-bit tablet.

Fortunately, penny-pincher, HTC is cutting you a little slack today. You can order Google’s Nexus 9 with 16GB of storage for $199 today only as part of HTC’s Hot Deals, which will occur weekly leading up to Black Friday. That's a full 50 percent off MSRP, just a day after the tablet became available. The sale ends at midnight tonight, east coast time. There are limited quantities of the half-price Nexus 9, though HTC will still take $50 off the price for latecomers.

It’s a pretty good deal—and frankly, pretty crafty leveraging on HTC’s part to get people amped about their products. If you want to follow along with this month’s Hot Deals, you can follow the company on Twitter.
