True to various rumors, Google has unveiled more new Nexus devices today on their blog. The Mountain View – based company is taken to fight to Apple and others in the Tablet space by unveiling the Nexus 10.
The Nexus 10 comes with an iPad-beating 2560-by-1600 (300ppi) resolution display. WOW!
Here is what Google has to say about their new Nexus 10 tablet:
[quote] Nexus 10 is the ultimate tablet for watching movies or reading magazines. We wanted to build a premium entertainment device, so we partnered with Samsung to do just that. Nexus 10 is the highest resolution tablet on the planet at 2560-by-1600 (300ppi), that’s over 4 million pixels right in your hands. It comes with a powerful battery that will get you up to nine hours of video playback and more than 500 hours of standby time. With a set of front-facing stereo speakers, you can watch movies right from your Nexus 10 and they simply sound awesome. But what makes Nexus 10 unique is that it’s the first truly shareable tablet. With Android 4.2, you can add multiple users and switch between them instantly right from the lockscreen. We believe that everyone should have quick and easy access to their own stuff — email, apps, bookmarks, and more. That way, everyone can have their own home screens, their own music, and even their own high scores.[/quote]
The features of this tablet is sure to cause Microsoft and Amazon serious problems selling the respective competing tabs. Apple will also be having some sleepless nights with such a formidable competitor to their new iPad.
Google also revealed a new Nexus 4 smartphone made by LG. According to Google the Nexus 4, “has a quad-core processor which means it’s super fast, a crisp 4.7″ (320 ppi).”
According to the release note:
[quote] Nexus 4 is our latest smartphone, developed together with LG. It has a quad-core processor which means it’s super fast, a crisp 4.7″ (320 ppi) display that’s perfect for looking at photos and watching YouTube, and with wireless charging you just set the phone down on a charging surface to power it up, no wires needed. While Nexus 4 is incredibly powerful under the hood, it also features the latest version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.2—the simplest and smartest version of Android yet. Starting with the camera, we’ve reinvented the photo experience with Photo Sphere, which lets you capture images that are literally larger than life. Snap shots up, down and in every direction to create stunning 360-degree immersive experiences that you can share on Google+ with friends and family—or you can add your Photo Sphere to Google Maps for the world to see.
Android 4.2 brings other great goodies like Gesture Typing, which lets you glide your finger over the letters you want to type on the keyboard—it makes typing fast, fun and a whole lot simpler. Android 4.2 also adds support for wireless display so you can wirelessly watch movies, YouTube videos and play games right on your Miracast-compatible HDTV. [/quote]
The devices come with Android 4.2, the latest version of Jelly Bean featuring the latest version of Google Now.
Google Now has been updated with more features. According to Google:
[quote] So today we’re adding more cards that we hope you’ll find useful. Flight information, restaurant reservations, hotel confirmations and shipping details—how often have you found yourself wading through your email to get this information at the last moment? So next time you book a table for dinner, you’ll get a reminder with all the details without ever having to lift a finger. You’ll also get cards for nearby attractions, interesting photo spots, movies times at nearby theaters or concerts by your favorite artists. [/quote]
