Eager to get in on the newly-announced Google Nexus 10? How about the Google Nexus 4? You're in luck!  Both the  tablet and the phone just popped up in the Google Play store. All you can really do right now is drool at the pictures and specs, or sign up for e-mail updates, but hey, that should keep most of us busy for the rest of the afternoon. 

Just in case you need a reminder, the Wi-Fi-only Nexus 10 is launching November 13 starting at $399 ($499 for the 32 GB version). The specs?

  • 10-inch 2560 x 1600 display
  • Dual-core A15 processor with 2 GB of RAM
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 9000 mAh battery
  • 5 megapixel camera plus 1.9 megapixel camera on the front

As for the Nexus 4...

  • 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 display
  • S4 Snapdragon processor
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 2100 mAh battery
  • 8 megapixel camera with 1.3 megapixel camera on the front

They're both looking pretty sweet, eh? So, who's in? Is the price right?

Finally a 10" tablet worthy of replacing my Xoom! Oh wait...dual core? WHY U NO QUAD CORE!?

These "core" arguments are getting really exhausting. An A15 Dual Core is WAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY better than any A9 quad core offering out there. Samsung just came in earlier. They're the first to release an A15 processor.

No Qualcomm was the first to release an A15 based processor the S4, and now Qualcomm has released their quad core variant the S4pro. Qualcomm usually is first to the game and has great offerings, however Samsung usually delivers the architecture later but historically Samsung processors out perform their Qualcomm equivalent.

From Wikipedia: the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 "has many similarities with the ARM Cortex-A15 CPU and is also based on the ARMv7 instruction set." So it's not A15; it's A15-y.

It also bears mentioning that this is the same chip used in the new $249 Samsung Chromebook. I wouldn't be surprised if we started to see even more convergence between the two platforms moving forward.

Reading about the capabilities of this processor and the GPU, I'm sold. Will be picking one of these up as soon as I can scrape up enough coin

What? So you think that this tablet should be only $50 more than the 32gb Nexus 7? Are you nuts? lol

I have 2 of those as well, but I am def getting the Nex10. The Touchpad is a child's toy in comparison lol

I am very interested in the Nexus 4 (especially at that price!) but I'm on Verizon and cant really change carriers (AT&T has little coverage in my area).

The tablet looks nice, but Im not in the market for one at the moment.

So yes, these are awesome - but they wont work for me.... yet.

I like the Nexus 4, but not enough to pay the ETF from Verizon, despite the fact that I really want to get away from this carrier. Definitely going to pick up an N10 for myself and possibly a N7 or a Chromebook (I'm torn) for my mom for Christmas.

Nexus 4 looks good especially considering they were able to keep the price at $350. Nexus 10 looks awesome. Nice work Google.

Although, I have to say that that design is a Samsung design. It's totally based off the Galaxy Tab imprint.

I noticed from the images on Google Play that this one also has the phone style homescreen UI. I thought I read somewhere that it was just going to be on 7" tablets. I guess the tablet interface was completely eliminated from Jelly Bean. Ah well, the specs are pretty sweet. Makes up for the lack of a tablet UI. Maybe a good platform to try that Chameleon launcher.

Time for my Xoom to go on eBay me thinks, but I sure am going to miss that SD slot. Hopefully I can plug my USB external hard drive into the Nexus 10.
