“Google on Monday introduced a new Nexus 4 smartphone to take on Apple’s iPhone 5, a 10-inch iPad competitor named the Nexus 10, and launched a new version of its Nexus 7 tablet with cellular data connectivity,” AppleInsider reports. “The trio of new products all run Android 4.2, what the company called a ‘new flavor’ of its mobile operating system code-named Jelly Bean.”
“Co-developed with LG, the Nexus 4 has a quad-core processor and a 4.7-inch display that packs in 320 pixels per inch. The device also allows wireless inductive charging without the need to plug in wires,” AppleInsider reports. “The Nexus 4 is $299 for the 8-gigabyte model, and $349 for the 16-gigabyte variety… A 16-gigabyte version will also be available through T-Mobile for $199 with a two-year service contract.”
AppleInsider reports, “With a screen size closer to Apple’s full-size 9.7-inch iPad, the Nexus 10 has a screen resolution of 2,560 by 1,600 pixels, or 300 pixels per inch. Google partnered with Samsung in the design of its new 10-inch tablet. The Nexus 7 will cost $399 for the 16-gigabyte model and $499 for 32 gigabytes.”
“Google has done away with the entry-level 8-gigabyte Nexus 7, which was previously available for $199. For that price, users now get 16 gigabytes of storage, while a new 32-gigabyte model is also available for $249. A new high-end Nexus 7 is also available, offering 32 gigabytes of storage and HSPA+ mobile connectivity for $299. The device will operate on more than 200 GSM providers worldwide, including AT&T in the U.S.,” AppleInsider reports. “Unlike Apple’s iPad and iPad mini, the new Nexus 7 with cellular data connectivity is not compatible with high-speed 4G LTE networks.”
