Google expands the Nexus product family

As has been widely rumored for the past couple of weeks, Google today officially announced two new members to the Google Nexus product family: the Nexus 4 smartphone and the Nexus 10 tablet.
 
The Nexus 4 (which runs Android 4.2) was developed in conjunction with LG and features a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus display (1280x768). When it comes to the much bragged about screen density measurement in smartphones these days, the Nexus 4 measures in at 320 PPI. The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 2, so you don't have to be too paranoid about scratching/breaking your screen anytime soon.
 
On the hardware front, the Nexus 4 gets its motivation from a 1.5GHz, quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor that is paired with 2GB of system memory. The phone will be available in 8GB and 16GB versions, and features an 8MP camera on the back (1.3MP unit up front). The Nexus 4 also supports wireless charging and NFC.

Unfortunately, the Nexus 4 doesn't support LTE -- it only bring with it support for 3G/HSPA+. This alone will likely scratch the Nexus 4 off the purchase list of many buyers.
 
The Nexus 4 will be sold unlocked for $299 (8GB) or $349 (16GB). T-Mobile will also make the 16GB version available under contract (two years) for $199.
 
The other big announcement from Google today comes in the form of the Samsung-designed Nexus 10 tablet. As we reported before, the Nexus 10 also runs Android 4.2 and comes with a 2,560 x 1,600 display with a screen density of 300 PPI. It features a 1.7GHz, dual-core Samsung Exynos 5250 processor with 2GB of RAM, Mali T604 GPU, NFC support and a 5MP rear camera (1.9MP up front).
