Nexus 10 and Nexus 4
14th November 2012
When Google released the Nexus 7 upon us earlier in 2012 I was very surprised. A £159 tablet that was good in every regard? At the time this was unheard of, and even months later on it’s still a really good tablet. Now it has a big and little brother, the Nexus 10 and 4, this time coming courtesy of Samsung and LG. At £319 for the Nexus 10 and £239 for the nexus 4 they arrives with a higher price but has a lot to show for it.
The 10.1-inch panel has an amazing 2,560 x 1,600 resolution which is 300 pixels per inch and way more than a 1080p HDTV contains. It very similar in design to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N, Which also feature a pair of front-facing speakers embedded into the left and right bezel.
Under the hood the Nexus 10 has a dual-core 1.7GHz Samsung Exynos processor and 2GB of RAM which should have no problem keeping pace with the fastest Android devices on the market. It comes with Android 4.2 out of the box which is the latest version and being part of Google’s Nexus range will be amongst the first to receive future updates. This version introduces multi user which allows the device to set up with more that one Google account and allow each user to customise the interface.
It also comes with Bluetooth 3.0 , NFC support and an enormous 9000 mAh Lithium polymer battery which promises 9 hours of video or 7 hours of web browsing.
Like the Nexus 10 the 4.7″ screen on the Nexus 4 boasts a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution which is 320 pixels per inch and the phone its self weighing only 139g
Inside the nexus 4 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and a 2,100 mAh Lithium polymer battery which should provide plenty of power. The Nexus 4 is also running Google’s latest version of android and has the added bonus of having Photo Sphere which allows you to take 360° Photos
The Nexus 4 features Bluetooth 3.0, NFC support and wireless charging which requires Google’s Wireless Charging Orb.
