- Google announced the Nexus 4 which is made by LG and has a 4.7in screen. The phone is the first device to be rocking Android 4.2.
- The Nexus 10 is a completely new product from Google and Samsung. Starting at $399, the N10 has a screen resolution that surpasses the newest iPad and a battery that Google says will give you 9 hours of video playback.
- Google also updated the Nexus 7 tablet. The price stayed the same (starting at $299) but HSPA+ network availability was added and Google is now selling a new 32gb N7 model.
2. No LTE for Nexus 4
Surprisingly, the new Nexus 4 phone lacks LTE radios. So the N4 is not available on Sprint, Verizon and other CDMA networks.
