Google Inc. has taken the wraps off of its new Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 devices.
The three new units run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, yep, they didn’t switch the name, bummer, I know. But here is a bit more about the fine Nexus line up.
According to Andy Rubin, Google’s senior VP of mobile and digital content wrote on the official Google Blog, mmm yes, it was not a real event that unveiled the new devices but just a blog post. So the blog states that “Today, we’re excited to announce three great new Nexus devices … in small, medium and large. And they all run Android 4.2, a new flavor of Jelly Bean—which includes the latest version of Google Now and other great new features.”
Nexus 4 is a smartphone featuring the new OS JB which Google has “reinvented the photo experience with Photo Sphere, which lets you capture images that are literally larger than life. Snap shots up, down and in every direction to create stunning 360-degree immersive experiences that you can share on Google+ with friends and family—or you can add your Photo Sphere to Google Maps for the world to see.”
The phone features a quad-core processor with a 4.7 inch display and allows a wireless charging by placing the device on a particular surface. Built by LG, the phone runs at 320 pixels per inch. The model comprising of 8GB storage will be priced at $299 and 16GB at $349.
The unlocked devices are also going to be available from November 13 on Google Play store in US, US, Australia, Germany, France and Canda.
The Nexus 7, a tablet, will be available in several models including the 16GB and 32GB storage priced at $199 and $249 respectively.
Regarding Nexus 10, the blog states that its “the ultimate tablet for watching movies or reading magazines. We wanted to build a premium entertainment device, so we partnered with Samsung to do just that. Nexus 10 is the highest resolution tablet on the planet with a 10.055″ display at 2560-by-1600 (300ppi), that’s over 4 million pixels right in your hands. It comes with a powerful battery that will get you up to nine hours of video playback and more than 500 hours of standby time. With a set of front-facing stereo speakers, you can watch movies right from your Nexus 10 and they simply sound awesome. But what makes Nexus 10 unique is that it’s the first truly shareable tablet.”
Google also announced that starting Nov. 13 the Google Play Store is now open to purchases from consumers in Canada, the U.K., France, Spain and Australia. Users in those countries will also be the first to get a new Google music matching feature. Google will scan a user’s music collection and any song we match against the Google Play catalog will be automatically added to your online library without their needing to upload it on their own.
The feature will come to the United States in the near future, according to Google. “This will all be for free—free storage of your music, free matching, free syncing across your devices and free listening,” wrote Rubin.
These devices were supposed to be launched in New York City but that event was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy hitting the east coast on Sunday.
