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?

$399 for the dual core tablet? There are two in the box or what?

ShaneOryan says:

A15 dual core > A9 quad core

Qualacomms S4 and the Apple A6 are not A15.

terrycanfly says:

Correction. The s4 is based off of the a15 and the s4pro has the new adreno graphics chipset

DrWu says:

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

iamtofuboy says:

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.

iamtofuboy says:

I dunno about that. I'm pretty sure Samsung was the first to create an A15 processor.

crxssi says:

Nope. Qualcomm S4 was first

JobiWan144 says:

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.

TenshiNo says:

The Qualicomm S4 is based on the A9 architecture, but modified with some similar features of the A15. This tablet will be the first thing on the market sporting an A15-based SoC.

DrWu says:

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

TenshiNo says:

+1 My G-Tablet is becoming tiresome :)

rfmike says:

I AM SO DOWN, Time for retire the Samsung Tab 10.1

BobCollins says:

I was looking for $299. The super-resolution display would be nice, but a lower price would be better.

Prey521 says:

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

DrWu says:

Screw it I'm in.

MarkMcCoskey says:

I'm still pluggin' away with this HP Touchpad running 4.0.4, and it only cost me $150.

Prey521 says:

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

richard_rsp says:

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.

eahinrichsen says:

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.

AzD says:

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

iamtofuboy says:

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

gottria says:

Does the 10 have a sd slot?

eahinrichsen says:

Nope, and you can expect subsequent Nexus devices to follow suit, unless something big changes.

Galaxy Note 10.1 Destroys All!!

Wolfgar2k says:

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.

Zammo76 says:

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.

What is going to happen to all those unsold Galaxy Nexus?
