Google plans to unveil their newest line of Nexus products – Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 – to the public at an NYC Android event.
For all you Android lovers out there, mark your calendars. Google plans to unveil their newest line of Nexus products to the general public just in time for the holiday season. The newest devices will be much easier to use than the previous incarnations and could provide a legitimate alternative to the iPhones, iPads and Galaxy devices.
Google’s latest Nexus phone incarnation will feature a 4.7″ screen, 1.5 gHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor and runs Android 4.2 (Jellybean). Inside the 9.1mm thin body resides NFC, 8MP camera, and 8GB or 16GB of storage. There’s no current word on US pricing at the moment, but all signs point to it costing around the same as the iPhone 5.
Not to be outdone by Apple, Google also has plans to unveil the an updated version of the popular mini-table Nexus 7. Not much will change with the Nexus 7 as it will feature the same 7″ screen, Quad-core Tegra 3 processor and will run Android 4.2. Google will discontinue the 8GB model in favor of a larger WiFi only 32GB model and drop the prices of their 16GB model.
Last but not least is the much anticipated Nexus 10 tablet. The tablet will feature a 10.1″ Super AMOLED panel, 1.7GHz dual-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, a Mali-T604 GPU and front-facing speakers . There’s no microSD card slot on-board and the device is expected to ship in multiple memory configurations starting at 16GB. Like all the other Nexus devices, the Nexus 10 will run on Android 4.2. There’s no word yet on pricing of the tablet, but there’s rumors that the 16GB will start at $299.
While the big reveal has been delayed due to inclement weather the announcement shouldn’t be postponed for too long. All products will most likely be available for pre-order by November 1st and ship well before the holiday season.
