There won't be a launch event, but that doesn't mean launches aren't happening. Google today announced a new Nexus phone, along with a new tablet -- and updated a current one. Here's the breakdown of what you need to know:
- Nexus 4 by LG: There's not a whole lot about this phone we didn't know, but it's now official. You'll be able to get an unlocked Nexus 4 starting Nov. 13. There's an 8GB version for $299, and a 16GB version for $349. There currently are no LTE versions, but it's coming to T-Mo U.S. on contract. UK prices start at £239.
- Nexus 7 refreshed: This guy's been around for a few months now. The bottom end is now a 16GB version for $199, and 32GB for $249. You can find it in various retailers already.
- Nexus 10 announced: Samsung's back with a 10-inch Nexus tablet. Pure Google. It's running $399 for a 16GB version, and $499 for a 32GB model. It'll be available Nov. 13 in the U.S., UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan. In the UK, prices start at £319.
- Android 4.2: And, of course, we've got a new update to Android. It's still called Jelly Bean. New features include "photo sphere" for the camera, which basically is a 360-degree panorama. The keyboard's gained gesture typing and improved prediction. There's a new "Daydream" feature for when your device is docked. Tablets get support for multiple users. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
