Google: An unusual product launch!

The imminent arrival of Hurricane Sandy has caused Google to cancel their big event in New York today where it was to show off the new Nexus devices. Android and Google fans must be feeling very disappointed. They were all expecting several new Google products and an improved version of Nexus 7.

The company hasn’t yet announced the new dates for the launch event. As there is no problem with either the hardware or the software updates, the rescheduled even should be held within a short period of time.

However the company decided to take its official blog to announce several major upgrades in its Nexus Product Line, including, as expected, a new smartphone, and a new tablet to compet with Apple products.

Today, we’re excited to announce three great new Nexus devices … in small, medium and large. And they all run Android 4.2, a new flavor of Jelly Bean—which includes the latest version of Google Now and other great new features.”

First the Nexus 4 smartphone, developped with LG, has a fast (1.5 GHz) quad-core processor, crisp 4.7-inch (320 ppi) display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixel and runs Android 4.2. It has a wireless charging feature that lets you set the phone down on a charging surface to juice it up. An 8GB Nexus 4 will sell for $349, while the 16Gb model is $399.

The Nexus 10, a 10-inch tablet designed to rival Apple’s iPad and Microsoft’s Surface is the fruits of Google and Samsung’s collaboration. As Google said, “the highest-resolution tablet on the planet,” is a larger 10-inch model designed for watching movies and reading magazines, with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 (300ppi) or more over 4 million pixels, which is higher than the so-called retina display resolution Apple promotes. The 16GB model is $469, while the 32GB version is $569.

Google also introduced an upgraded Nexus 7: thin, light and now even more portable hat fits perfectly in your hand. You can now get a Nexus 7 with 16GB of storage for $199 or 32GB for $249. And Google added the capability of tapping into a wireless network known as HSPA+, which you can use to access mobile data.

Meanwhile, Google updated Android to version 4.2 that will keep the JELLY BEAN name, but will add improvements including gesture-based typing, support for multiple users and actionnable notifications. Like the much-beloved Swype, Android 4.2′s keyboard now offers gesture-based typing where you can draw words with your finger instead of poke at each key individually. Android 4.2 also allows you to instantly switch between users direct from the lock screen, very easily.

Android 4.2 adds another nifty features as well: Daydream adds interesting information to your lock screen, such as a photo slideshow or news. As part of the latest enhancements of Android 4.2, Google says it is bringing out a new Photo Sphere, which will let you capture images that are literally larger than life. You can take pictures, up, down and an in every direction, and create 360-degree immersive experiences that you can share on Google+ with friends and family — or for everyone to see via Google Maps. “You become your own Street View,” says Hiroshi Lockheimer, vice president of Engineering for Android, referring to a clever feature in Google Maps.
