Yesterday’s planned Google event in New York was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy, but Google have still released information about these new devices. The information pretty much matches up with the rumours that have been swirling around the internet for the last month.
The Nexus 4 is a new phone manufactured by LG. It has a 4.7″ screen and comes with either 8GB or 16GB of storage. It will cost either £239 or £279 depending on how much storage you go for, which is very cheap when compared to other high-end Android smartphones. It also features wireless charging.
The Nexus 10 is a new tablet manufactured by Samsung. It has a 10″ screen and features an amazing 2560*1600 resolution, which is 300 pixels per inch – much higher than the new iPad’s 264 ppi. It will cost £319 or £389 depending on whether you choose the 16GB or 32GB storage option.
Both devices will run the latest version of Android, 4.2 (which will still be called Jelly Bean). This has new features such as Photo Sphere allowing for 360 degree panoramas, and a new keyboard which seems to be very similar to Swype. The Nexus 10 will allow for multiple users to have separate accounts on. Google Now has also been updated with extra functionality.
