Google Unveils Android 4.2-powered Nexus 4 Smartphone and Nexus 10 Tablet

Even as the East Coast braces for some of the worst weather the area’s seen in a while, Google has went ahead and issued a press release for the new products it was supposed to unveil at a press event in New York City.

The Nexus 4 was confirmed to have a screen with 320ppi of resolution, run a quad-core processor and have wireless charging support. However, Google has seemingly omitted support for 4G LTE networks. $299 will net a buyer 8GB of storage, while 16GB of storage will set one back $349.

Meanwhile, Google confirmed the Nexus 10 to have an eye-wateringly high resolution 2560 x 1600 pixel screen. Two storage options are available, 16GB for $399 and 32GB for 499.

The online search giant has also discontinued the 8GB Nexus 7, but moved the 16GB model down to $199 and introduced a 32GB model at the $249 price point. Also announced was a GSM/HSPA+ network-compatible top-end Nexus 7 variant that has 32GB of storage for $299.

All this hardware is due to become available on November 13. The Nexus 4 and cellular-compatible Nexus 7 could be purchased through the Google Play store in the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. Meanwhile, the non-cellular-compatible Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 could be purchased through the same channel in those seven countries plus Japan.
