Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 refresh official!


Despite the cancellation of the event scheduled for today, Google has officially announced the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and refreshed Nexus 7!

First up the Nexus 4

There's little that we don't know about the Nexus 4. It's a LG manufactured device featuring a 4.7" 1280x768 IPS display, 1.5GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, an 8 Megapixel camera / 1.3 megapixel front facing camera and either 8GB or 16GB of storage. No microSD expansion of course. As we exclusively revealed, wireless charging is included for the 2100mah battery. Connectivity comes via Pentaband HSPA - no LTE here, but again, this is exactly what we expected. The device will ship with Android 4.2.

The Nexus 4 will be priced at $299 / $349 for 8GB / 16GB versions respectively, in the US, £239 / £279 in the UK.

Introducing the Nexus 10

The second addition to the Nexus stable is the Nexus 10. Again extensively leaked, the Samsung manufactured Nexus 10's headline features are the 2560x1600 display, ARM Cortex-A15 based Exynos CPU and quad-core Mali T604 GPU. As on the Nexus 4, 2GB RAM is on board and the device will ship with Android 4.2. A 5 megapixel camera / 1.9 megapixel front facing camera is included, all juiced up by a monster 9000mAh battery.

The Nexus 10 will be priced at $399 / $499 for 16GB / 32GB versions respectively, £319 / £389 in the UK. The device will be sold via the Google Play Store in the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada from November 13th.

Goodbye 8GB Nexus 7, hello 32GB!

The 8GB Nexus 7 is no more - replaced by the 16GB model at the low end and the 32GB at the high end.

The refreshed Nexus 7 will be priced at $199 / $249 for 16GB / 32GB versions respectivly, £159 / £199 in the UK. The device will be available in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan.

The 3G Nexus 7 is finally confirmed

As revealed first here, Google has announced the 3G version of the Nexus 7. Called the 'Nexus 7 (32GB + Mobile)', the device features a pentaband HSPA+ modem but is otherwise identical to a regular Nexus 7.

The device will be priced at $299, £239 in the UK. The device will again be sold via the Google Play Store in the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, and Canada from November 13th.

Will the nexus 4 come with a wireless charging dock?


Yes - see theverge video visit to Google - http://www.theverge....-10-android-4-2

And: http://www.theverge....b-touchstone-qi

"Alongside the new phone, Matias gleefully shows me a new inductive charging dock, a quarter-sphere that magnetizes the phone in place while juicing. If it looks and acts like the Touchstone dock that Palm released with its ill-fated Pre, no one should be surprised. Duarte was, after all, one of the masterminds behind webOS and its related devices."
