This morning at 9am PST Google will officially begin selling their new Nexus devices from the Play store. The new phones and tablets, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, are going to be retailing for anywhere from $299 to $499 depending on the device and storage capacity. The sales are on a gradual roll out based on your time zone and there are already reports from Australia and the U.K. of sell-outs.
- Nexus 4 – 8 GB – $299
- Nexus 4 – 16 GB – $349
- Nexus 10 – 16 GB – $399
- Nexus 10 – 32 GB – $499
Will you be grabbing one of the new Android devices? I personally have mixed feelings on these. While the LG Nexus 4 is certainly a nice looking phone and does come with the brand new Android 4.2 operating system, but it also comes WITHOUT LTE. As for the Nexus 10, I understand that Google wanted a Nexus tablet to compete with the full-size iPad. However, do we really need a 10 inch Android tablet? Existing ones have so far proven less popular than 7 inch versions. A Windows 8 10 inch tablet? Sure. An Android 10 inch tablet? Perhaps not.
Regardless of my personal questions, the new devices seem to be off to a quick start. We’re only moments away from the official U.S. launch so, if you are interested, then head over to Google Play now.
Update: Nexus 4 16GB sold out in less than 10 minutes.
