Google introducing Nexus family with LG Nexus 4, ASUS Nexus 7 with 32GB of ROM and Samsung Nexus 10.

Google was supposed to hold an event today on Oct 29 to announce the introduction of Nexus devices in New York but because of the severity of Sandy, they have postponed the event – the physical one that is. As per their blog post, they have just announced the introduction of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and the introduction of 3 new Android devices.

As per the rumors, Google announced its latest Nexus phone, the Nexus 4 in partnership with LG. This new Nexus device is powered by a quad-core processor and will be running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. But this new phone with its 4.7 inch screen also introduces new features to the Nexus family such as wireless charging and wireless display. Add to this PhotoSphere which lets you create 360 degree pictures right from your Nexus device and you’ve got an amazing device starting at $199 with a 2-year contract.


What else did Google announced? The introduction of a new 32GB Nexus 7 tablet. Because of this newcomer, the 8GB version is now discontinued and prices for the 16GB and 32GB have been revised down to $199 and $249 respectively. Anything else? You bet, you can now have a Nexus 7 tablet with HSPA+ mobile data so you can always stay connected on the go.

Last but not least, Google partnered with Samsung to create the first Nexus 10, an Android device with a 10 inch screen. This 10-inch tablet features an amazing screen resolution, the highest in its class and has a battery that can last up to nine hours of video playback.
Something that I am really looking forward is the share option, allowing you to share your tablet between different users. All you have to do is to change users right from the lockscreen. Every users can personalize their own space with their own apps and preferences all in one tablet. Now that’s interesting. And how much does the Nexus 10 costs? The 16GB version is available for $399 and the 32GB for $499 starting from November 13. Not bad. Oh how I’d love to get my hand on one of them. And you?
