Before the Google announcement of its two new Nexus devices, the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10, there were quite a few bogus rumors, so ridiculous that we didn't even bother to mention them.
Of course, some of the rumors were right, however, the one that really got us was that there would reportedly be a Sony Xperia Nexus X which we know could never happen because the X is the same as the number 10 and that would've led to an incredible amount of confusion. More importantly, let's see what numbers Google did get right for its new Nexus 7, Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.
Right Number - Pricehim
Google has been aggressively creating lower-priced products such as the Chrome Book while cutting out the middle-carrier/seller. The backbone of all its products is to promote Google Chrome, Google Search, Google Adsense , Google Play and keep users inside the Google world of things. There reportedly will be an Acer C7 Chromebook for $199 on sale tomorrow. Google also keeps production and sales costs low by using its power as search source to power sales.
Nexus 7 tablet - when the well-reviewed Nexus 7 was released the cheapest model could only be bought through Google, 16GB models could be purchased at WalMart and other stores. The only problems were with customer service and priority shipping did not arrive before other methods of buying. Now that the price of the Nexus 7 16GB model has been lowered to $199 it available for free store pick up from Walmart.
The Nexus 4 superphone priced at $299 unlocked is probably one of the best deals you will find for an unlocked smartphone. Carriers can charge more than $600 for unlocked non-contract devices. With a contract at T-Mobile it will sell for $199.
The Nexus 10 16GB model sells for $399 which for the resolution is a good price for a 10" screen but may be too high for bargain hunters.
Right Number 4 for Quad-Core
The Nexus 7 and 4 have quad-core processors this kind of hardware does a great job of intense processing for graphics, video and gaming. The Nexus 10 claims to be built for speed with a a dual-core ARM cortex A15 wi MIMO, this may have been chosen to reduce the price.
Right Number Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
All the new Nexus devices will ship with the latest version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and are updated quickly. Android 4.2 ahs new photo sphere camera features and keyboard (see all features).
Right Number Screen Resolution Nexus 10
Google claims the Nexus 10 has the world's greatest resolution 10.055" display at 2560-by-1600 (300ppi), that totals over 4 million pixels.
Right Numbers Release Dates
Tomorrow, November 13 is the release date for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 Cellular Data and Nexus 10 gives buyers plenty of time to order in time for the holidays. There may be shortages at first, if they receive great reviews.
Wrong Numbers - 4G HSPA+ - Not 4G LTE
The new cellular Nexus 7 will only connect to HSPA+ networks.
The Nexus 4 is not compatible with LTE networks but works with the slight slower HSPA+. The most optimal network to run the Nexus 4 is T-Mobile because you will able to get HSPA+ data speeds, limiting your choice of U.S. carriers.
