Even though Google cancelled today’s media announcement due to Hurricane Sandy – and we received official word that it won’t be rescheduled for a later date – the company went ahead and unveiled new products. After all, Google wasn’t going to let the tech world talk about Windows Phone 8 devices today, was it?
Google’s Nexus lineup for the Christmas season was made official earlier today, and we have showed them to you already, at least virtually: the Nexus 4, the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10. But if you’re planning to write a letter to Santa asking for new Nexus toys, you’d better tell him when they’re supposed to ship.
Because Google canceled its Nexus and Android 4.2 media event that should have taken place in New York City today, it was forced to unveil its new products via press releases that are limited in terms of what they can reveal. We have already covered the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in great detail, but we still have unanswered questions.
The new Google flagship handset was unveiled earlier today, although we knew almost everything there was to know about it for weeks now, and it will soon hit various retailers around the world, carriers included.
In case you didn’t buy one yet, you won’t be able to get one as Google has pulled it from the Google Play store. I’m obviously talking about the third Nexus smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (HSPA+ version) that’s now no longer available for sale from Google.
The first Nexus ad showing all of Google’s recently announced devices (the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and new Nexus 7 versions) has been released by Google with a huge emphasis on Search. Entitled “Nexus: Ask Me Anything,” the 60-second clip shows us various Search-related instances during day-to-day activities.
Android fans following the Nexus news today know that Google has unveiled a bunch of new products, all ready to run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box, including the LG Nexus 4, the Samsung Nexus 10 and the Asus Nexus 7 (32GB Wi-Fi and 32GB Wi-Fi+3G version).
As you already know by now, Google on Monday unveiled its new products that will target shoppers around the world this holiday season including the Google Nexus 4 smartphone made by LG, the Google Nexus 10 tablet by Samsung and the new Google Nexus 7 tablet versions made by Asus. Obviously, all of them will run Google’s most recent Android 4.2 OS right out of the box (also announced today,) so there are plenty of reasons to be excited about these new devices.
The LG Nexus 4 is now official. While we knew just about every feature coming to the new Nexus smartphone, its support of wireless charging is probably one of the coolest things about the Nexus 4. The wireless charging system will work with a new optional device Google is calling the Wireless Charging Orb.
Hurricane Sandy may have completely changed Google’s plans for today, convincing the company to cancel its media event that was supposed to take place in New York today. But Google decided to continue with its Nexus announcements anyway, revealing in the process the new Android 4.2 OS. And it’s called Jelly Bean, as most rumors suggested before the event, not Key Lime Pie.
