Google launched Nexus 4, Nexus 10, new Nexus 7, Android v4.2
The Google Nexus next series has been officially launched, complete with the latest version of Android –version 4.2. The new version is still under the same name “Jelly Bean”. The series have a range of devices from a phone Nexus 4 a 4.7 inches crisp display to a thin lightweight tablet Nexus 7 and on higher end a 10-inch tablet called Nexus 10.
The new handset have arrived with some pretty top-end specs and a relatively lower cost. However what i feel is Google have played a trick here by removing the support for SD card. There’s no microSD expansion, but given the Google Nexus 4 release date is only on 13 November (through the Google Play Store), we’re sure that will help those wondering whether this should be on their Christmas list.
What I don’t like is that Google is moving on Apple’s track to deliberately design the phone to have low storage capacities and NO SD card slot to encourage consumers to use their cloud services [google drive].
If you go back to 2010 the ancient Nexus One storage specs now look very impressive with 4 gb and sd card slot!!… Unfortunately in 2012 power mad Google has started to hard-sell the privacy abusing ‘Google drive’ cloud to data mine user files with this non expendable 5.2gb POS nexus 4.
On form factor review of the product, LG has nabbed the rights to be the newest kid on the Nexus block, and has thrown in some high level specs to power the Nexus 4 – starting with the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz processor, with an Adreno 320 GPU to shove the 1280×768 pixels along.
This gives it a ppi of 320, and makes it high-res enough to compete with the iPhone 5 thanks to the HD capacity.
The other exciting feature of phone is added support for wireless display so you can wirelessly watch movies, YouTube videos and play games right on your Miracast-compatible HDTV.
If you analyse Nexus 7 form factor, it has come with an exciting HSPA+ connectivity The new Nexus 7 will be available in 16GB and 32GB capacities. The 16GB version will cost $199, and the 32GB version will cost $249, in competition with iPad mini. The HSPA+ enabled Nexus 7 will be able to operate on more than 200 GSM providers around the world.
