A patent filing from not too long ago revealed the alleged keyboard case from the Nexus 9 tablet. And today, we’re getting our first live glimpse of the said case thanks to an NCC (National Communications Commission) certification listing from China.

As other apps from the manufacturer, this one too is only compatible with HTC devices, so you’re not in luck if you own a non-HTC handset. The lockscreen is pretty much the same as you would find on a One M8 or a Desire 816, so there are...
