Google Nexus 4 and 10 pricing announced

Google officially announced via its blog (29 October 2012) their new Nexus 4 smartphone, 32GB Nexus 7 with mobile data support, and Nexus 10 tablet PC.

Nexus 4

Confirming rumours coming out of India earlier this month, Google announced that its new Nexus 4 smartphone was developed with LG.

It has a quad-core processor, a 4.7-inch display, and runs on the latest version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.2.

Three of the Android 4.2 features that Google highlighted are Photo Sphere, Gesture Typing, and wireless display.

Photo Sphere lets users shoot 360-degree images that can be shared on Google+ or added to Google Maps.

Gesture Typing sounds much like Swype; users move their fingers over the letters on the keyboard which they want typed out.

Android 4.2 also adds wireless display support for watching movies and YouTube videos, or playing games wirelessly on a Miracast-compatible HDTV.

Google said that the Nexus 4 will be sold unlocked and without any contract on 13 November 2012 in the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. The 8GB Nexus 4 will sell for $299 and the 16GB Nexus 4 will cost $349.

Again confirming rumours, Google has also officially revealed that its Nexus 10 tablet PC was developed with Samsung.

It features a 2560×1600 resolution, 10.055-inch display, and promises 9 hours of video playback and 500 hours of standby time.

Another feature of Android 4.2 that Google announced with the Nexus 10 is the ability to share the tablet with others thanks to multiple user support.

Users can be switched from the lockscreen and will have their own settings including e-mail, apps, bookmarks, home screens, music, and even their own high scores.

The Nexus 10 will also be available on 13 November 2012 through Google’s store in the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan.

The 16GB model will cost $399 while the 32GB will sell for $499, Google said.
