Today Google announced three brand new Nexus devices in three sizes, all running the newest version of Android, 4.2, also known as Jelly Bean.
The three devices come in small, medium, and large, which translates to the Nexus 4, a smartphone, the nexus 7, Google’s already released 7-inch tablet, and the Nexus 10, a new 10-inch tablet.
Now that Google’s devices come in three sizes, the company is poised to become a serious iPad competitor, and each of its devices have been designed to compete directly with Apple’s offerings.
Google’s new 10-inch tablet is impressive, to say the least. It comes equipped with a 2560 by 1600 display, with 300 pixels per inch. That beats even the iPad’s Retina display. It’s also got a dual-core A15 chip along with a powerful GPU. It has a 5-megapixel back camera, the same as the iPad, and a 1.9-megapixel front facing camera.
On paper, this device is definitely on par with the fourth generation iPad, and we’ve already known that the Nexus 7 is a tablet that beats the mini in several respects, including screen resolution and processor speed.
The Nexus 4 is an iPhone competitor, and all of Google’s new devices are aggressively priced.
Google’s Nexus 4 16GB is available for $349 unlocked, the Nexus 7 16GB is available for $199 ($299 for 32GB with data), and the Nexus 10 16GB is available for $399.
This could spell trouble for the iPad. What do you think of Google’s new devices?
