Despite the fact that Hurricane Sandy put paid to Google’s Android event in New York yesterday, the search engine giant still forged ahead with its new range of devices.
As we expected, Android 4.2 and a new LG-made smartphone are in the mix. But what we didn’t predict was that Google would also showcase an updated 7-inch Asus tablet, and a 10-inch Samsung tablet. Here’s what we can expect from the line up of devices.
Samsung-designed Google Nexus 10
The Samsung-designed Nexus 10 naturally features a 10-inch display, and according to Google is the “highest resolution tablet on the planet” at 2560×1600. This trumps the iPad 2, which offers 2048×1536.
As with all the three new devices, the Nexus 10 runs on an updated version of the Jelly Bean OS, Android 4.2, and is powered by a dual-core ARM Cortex A15 chip with Mali T604 GPU.
The device also features two cameras, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, and a 5MP camera at the rear. Additional features include micro-USB and micro-HDMI ports and nine hours of battery life.
The Nexus 10 lands on 13 November, in a 16GB version (£319) and a 32GB version (£389).
Google Nexus 4 smartphone
Created by LG, the Nexus 4 smartphone will feature a 4.7 inch display with 320ppi. The device also runs on a powerful a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, as well as Android 4.2.
Although the device only has one 8MP camera, the new OS features panoramic software for creating 360-degree photos. Sadly the device doesn’t have 4G capability, which rolls out in the UK today.
The Nexus 4 also arrives on 13 November in an 8GB version (£239) and 16GB version (£279).
32GB Google Nexus 7
Google also unveiled an updated Nexus 7 tablet, running on Android 4.2 and with an internal storage capacity of 32GB. The updated tablet will come with a price tag of £199.
With new devices and an updated version of Jelly Bean, Google can expect a pretty successful pre-Christmas period.
