The type of devices here or the device manufacturer of the same isnt really news here, the fact that they are now official without a huge launch is. Google has just announced the three devices running Android 4.2. The Google Nexus 7 was announced together with Android 4.1 and has got a re-announcement with an upgrade, both in specs and OS. The three devices just announced are Asus Nexus 7, LG Nexus 4 and Samsung made Nexus 10. Not much has been mentioned of the specs, but what we have of each is impressive.
Google nexus 4 spots a 4.7 inch display(320ppi) and runs a Quad Core processor like the mother LG Optimus G, it also comes with wireless charging and has a new photo feel with photo sphere to capture extraordinarily huge images. Gesture typing which allows you to glide over the keyboard, I assume like swype for fast typing and Miracast wireless displays for wireless watching on other devices are some of the upgraded Android got for the smartphone. Google now also got an upgrade to include flight information, restaurant reservations, hotel confirmations and shipping details.
The Google Nexus 7 got a storage upgrade option with 16GB and 32GB options, priced at $199 amd $249 respectively. What’s more, there are options for 3G HSPA+ and the 32GB with HSPA+ priced at $299.
The Google Nexus 10, designed by Samsung dons the highest resolution on a tablet at 2560 x 1600 (300ppi) and a battery that offers 9 hours of video playback and 500 hours of standby time. The stereo speakers are set in the front at the sides. This one also comes with multiple users, so you can lend your mom your tablet and create them an account just like you would do a laptop.
So this announcement includes a video of all of them and their capabilities.
