Happy Nexus Day!

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.

Pricing

  • 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.
