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.
The new smartphone and tablets will be available in a variety of markets, both from Google’s Play Store, but also from mobile operators that will carry some of them. In what follows, we’re going to share with you more availability details about each of the new Nexus models.
Made by LG, the new Nexus 4 will be available on November 13 in two versions, 8GB and 16GB priced at $299 and $349, respectively. These are very affordable unlocked prices, so the Nexus 4 sounds even more interesting.
The handset is already listed in the Google Play Store in various countries, including the U.S., Canada, Australia, U.K., France, Germany and Spain.
Two mobile operators have already shared launch plans for the handset, T-Mobile in the U.S. and O2 in the U.K.. T-Mobile will sell the 16GB version for $199 with a new two-year contract, while O2 is ready to offer free LG HDTV to the first 100 Nexus 4 buyers.
It’s worth mentioning that for now the Nexus 4 will only be available in an HSPA+ version, meaning that it won’t be compatible with CDMA carriers in America such as Verizon or Sprint. Moreover, the Nexus 4 won’t sport 4G LTE connectivity, so you’ll have to look for a different handset in case that’s a must-have feature for you.
Google also announced two new Nexus 7 tablet versions today, both featuring 32GB of storage. Obviously, one comes with Wi-Fi support, while the other also includes 3G connectivity.
The 32GB Nexus 7 Wi-Fi version will retail for $249 and it’s already available in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Australia U.K., France, Germany and Spain. In addition to Google, other retailers will stock the tablet, including Walmart, Staples, Office Depot, Office Max and Gamestop.
The 3G version will go on sale starting with November 13 in 7 countries including the U.S., Canada, Australia, U.K., France, Germany and Spain and will cost $299. That’s the unlocked price of the device.
The 16GB model will retail for $199 and it’s already available in the same markets as the 32GB Nexus 7 Wi-Fi model. The 8GB model has been discontinued.
Maybe the most interesting addition to Google’s lineup of Nexus devices, the bigger Nexus 10 tablet made in cooperation with Samsung will also be launched on November 13. Initially, the tablet will launch in two Wi-Fi versions, 16GB and 32GB, priced at $399 and $499, respectively.
The tablet will be available to order from the Google Play Store in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Australia, U.K., France, Germany and Spain. In America, the 32GB Nexus 10 model will be available in “more than 2,000 Walmart stores.”
We have already told you that the Galaxy Nexus is not available for purchase on the Play Store any longer, so we’ll remind you to pick up yours from a different retailer, in case you still want to buy the third-generation Nexus smartphone.
What Nexus device are you buying?

I would buy everything if it’s available in my country
Disappointed in the small storage on the Nexus 4 (at present will not work on my carrier anyway), so I will stay with my Galaxy Nexus for now. Love my Nexus 7 16 Gig (32 Gig….sigh, maybe later) rooted so I can use external storage for long trips. Glad I went with the Asus TF300T, not too excited with the Nexus 10.
Not too bothered about the internal storage of a phone as I don’t need the space for anything more than apps and pictures, I have a 120GB iPod Classic for music, but for the price in the UK (£280) I think I’m going to get the 16GB Nexus 4. I’m shocked it’s so cheap, definitely worth replacing my old HTC Desire with that! I’ll order it as soon as possible. I’m incredibly excited!
I hope it’s just a typo on their site, but on google play it doesn’t mention a proximity sensor in the device…
I will pass…
no SD card slot is a huge deal breaker.
For that price I’ll be replacing my galaxy nexus. So cheap and I will be upgrading my processor, display and camera. Price blew me away.
This price is seriously insane. The old G Nexus was priced at the same price 2 days ago. Soooo cheap. Price is cheaper than what some people pay for an upgrade phone. Looking at you Galaxy Note for T Mobile
I just tried to look up the Nexus 4 on the Google Play site but it is all in French?????
Anyone know why??
I saw the price for the 32GB Nexus 7 in Japan is listed at 24,500 yen, considerably higher than $250. Earlier prices were inline with USA pricing. Wonder if they are going to keep it high. Won’t buy at that price.
The lack of lte in the nexus 4 isnt a problem for me. Buying the device unlocked and free from carrier restrictions sounds like a dream come true. Sadly the lack of an sd slot or larger 32/64 storage options is a deal breaker.
Price is amazing! Got to buy the Nexus 4 once its available!
I would like to buy Asus Google Nexus 7 3G and ship here in Saudi Arabia, is that possible?
Offcource want to bey in
