  • Google Goes to The Nexus Level to Challenge Apple


    Google this week has cancelled its media event in New York City in anticipation of monster storm Hurricane Sandy's arrival. But the Internet search giant is still moving forward with its planned device refreshes and new releases.

    Today, we’re excited to announce three great new Nexus devices … in small, medium and large. And they all run Android 4.2, a new flavor of Jelly Bean—which includes the latest version of Google Now and other great new features.
    So without much fanfare, Google raised the curtain today on a new Nexus 4 smartphone, a 10-inch iPad challenger called the Nexus 10, and a refreshed Nexus 7 tablet with cellular data connectivity.

    Overall, here is what Google is backing in its latest effort to slow the growth and market ubiquity of Apple's iDevice line:
    • Nexus 4: 8GB for $299; 16GB for $349; available unlocked and without a contract on 11/13 on the Google Play store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. The 16GB version will also be available through T-Mobile for $199, with a 2-year contract.
    • Nexus 7: 16GB for $199 and 32GB for $249; available in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan, and also through our retail partners Gamestop, Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and Walmart.
    • Nexus 7 with 32GB and mobile data: $299 and unlocked, on sale 11/13 in the Google Play store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada.
    • Nexus 10: 16GB for $399; 32GB for $499; available on 11/13 in the Google Play Store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan.

      No LTE is fine with me. We don't have LTE here and when I travel having the option to use t-mobile or ATT for HSPA+ is a bonus.

      Same place all the apple fanbois are that are defending the iPhone 5's inability to do SVDO while most modern Android devices on CDMAnetworks can.

      Always found it strange that its Google and not Apple that gave their mobile OS interesting names (Jelly Bean Ice Cream Sandwich, etc), While Apple just has iOS 3, 4, 5. pretty lame. Especially as their Mac counterparts have cool names (Mountain Lion, etc)

      People never mention flash especially on iOS fanboy forums like this. I believe its still very much an issue.
