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.
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.
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.
Walmart has become the latest retailer to list and begin accepting orders for the 32GB Nexus 7 tablet. The listing shows the expected price of $249 and currently notes that the device will begin shipping in early-November.
We saw the 8GB Nexus 7 drop from being available to coming soon a few days back, and well, as of this morning we have now seen the 16GB model do the same.
Android’s big event today may have been cancelled due to Sandy the Frankenstorm, but information about a certain Nexus 7 with an upgraded storage hasn’t stopped flowing . The latest sighting of the 32GB Nexus 7 in the wild was at Office Depot.
Thanks to recent leaks and reports, we have a general idea of what Google should unveil during its upcoming media event – initially scheduled to take place in New York on October 29 – but, with two days left to go, we have some bad news from Android fans: the playground is temporarily closed.
Although we can’t really see the iPad mini competing in the same league with Asus and Google’s Nexus 7, Apple’s new “affordable” tablet is still a serious threat for the Android world. But what is Google to do about that?
The iPad mini is not a “budget” tablet at all. With prices starting at $329 the budget Android tablet manufacturers can rest easy. The iPad mini is just another underwhelming, expensive release from Apple and this time it is a late entrant to a segment of the tablet market that is really starting to take off.
