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.

LG Nexus 4

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.

Google Wireless Charging Orb

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.
