Google Nexus 10 tablet teased in new video

Posted: 27 Oct 2012 06:40 PM PDT

Well, well, well, what do we have here? Looks like the Samsung made Google Nexus 10 tablet has decided to pose for a quick video showing off that glorious 2560 x 1600 HD display and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The video is a “teaser” in every sense of the word. Being only about 5 seconds in length, but we figured you’d all enjoy it so take a peek below.

The folks from BriefMobile have a leakster that is being kind enough to share tons of pictures, screenshots, and now video apparently of Google’s unannounced Nexus 10 tablet. Google was set to announce their new 10-inch slate Monday Morning at their Android event in NYC, but sadly this afternoon they’ve canceled their entire Nexus unveiling due to unsafe weather conditions. Thanks Hurricane Sandy. (Sad Face)

Without doing much talking, we’ll just let you guys enjoy the video below which happens to end way way too soon. We only get about 5 seconds and quickly get a glance at the rather bland unlock screen, followed by the leakster launching Google’s Chrome Browser — then sadly it’s over and the excitement ends just as quick as it started.

Rumors have basically been confirmed that the Samsung and Google Nexus 10 will sport a 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 stunningly high resolution HD display, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and will be powered by the exciting and brand new Samsung Exynos 5250 1.7 GHz dual-core processor — which is faster than all the quad-cores available today. It sports 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, HDMI-out, a 5 megapixel rear and 1.3 1080p front camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, and something that many didn’t think — GPS. They’ve uploaded a screenshot showing this indeed does have GPS.

The leakster also is reporting Samsung’s used a polycarbonate constructions for the device hardware. Stating that it looks like brushed aluminum, but in fact isn’t. Polycarbonate will make the back feel excellent, be durable, yet extremely lightweight. The same material is what Nokia’s been using on their new Lumia Windows Phones. We have a feeling a much longer video showing off the Samsung Nexus 10 tablet is coming soon so stay tuned since we won’t be seeing it come Monday after all. Who’s excited for this tablet?

Nexus 4 8GB and 16GB models confirmed in new LG manuals

Posted: 27 Oct 2012 12:29 PM PDT

Today, we’re hearing the sad news that Google has opted (smartly) to cancel its Android event in New York City on Monday due to the fact that Hurricane Sandy will probably be bearing down on the city around that time. While that decision is definitely for the best, it means that we’ll have to wait until sometime later on for all of these rumored devices, including the LG Nexus 4, to get revealed. Today we’re finding out that when the Nexus 4 is revealed, however, it’ll come in 8GB and 16GB varieties, thanks to a couple of LG E960 manuals that have popped up on the Web.

Spotted by Engadget, the support page that was posted to LG’s UK and Australian websites has since been taken down (looks like someone made a boo-boo!), but the PDF quick start manual for the LG Nexus 4 still remains. Not only do these support resources confirm the name of the Nexus 4 yet again, but they also show that 8GB and 16GB models will be offered. You might want to take a look at that 16GB model too, since diagrams in the quick start guide confirm that the Nexus 4 will be lacking a microSD slot once it arrives.

Of course, that’s nothing new – Google has never really been a fan of microSD slots on Nexus devices, so why should the Nexus 4 be any different? We’ve heard a lot about the Nexus 4 in the lead up to this eventual reveal, and it’s said to include a quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5GHz, along with 2GB of RAM and a 4.7-inch display running at 1280 x 768 resolution. Those certainly aren’t bad specs, but what’s really exciting about this new phone is that it could be the first device running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a while longer before we get to see Google pull the veil off this long-rumored handset. We’re also expecting the Samsung Nexus 10 and a new Nexus 7 model with 32GB of storage to show up during the event, so it should be a good one when the big G finally gets the chance to host it. Stay tuned, as we’ll have more information for you right here at Android Community!
