Google reveals new Nexus devices

Google has revealed its next wave of Nexus devices, with LG, Asus and Samsung building the tablet and mobiles that run Jelly Bean, the latest version of Android.

O2 will get a one month exclusive on the Nexus 4, which is available for free from £36 per month with unlimited calls, texts and 1GB of data. The first 50 people in the queue at a special pop-up shop at London's O2 Arena will also get a free 32 inch LG television, when it goes on sale on 13 November. The operator is also offering LG televisions through a Twitter promotion for people who buy the handset.

The Nexus 4 has a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and has 2GB of RAM. The Nexus 4 runs the latest version of Android, Jelly Bean, and has a 4.7-inch screen. Andy Rubin, senior vice-president of mobile and digital content at Google, said: 'This is the first time we collaborated with LG to build a Nexus device. They brought an extraordinary amount of talent to the project, and the result is a feature-packed device that feels great in your hand, and blazingly fast under the hood.'

David Johnson, general manager for devices at O2, said: 'Nexus 4 has a crystal clear screen and our customers will love Android 4.2. It’s the best way to experience Android, whether you’re trying it for the first time or have used it before.'

Asus's Nexus 7 is an updated version of its tablet with 32GB of storage and 3G connectivity. The 32GB tablets are on sale for £199, with the 3G version coming to Three by the middle of November and pricing to be confirmed. It has a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

Samsung's Nexus 10 goes on sale from 13 November, priced £319 for the 16GB and £389 for the 32GB. Google said the device has the high resolution tablet display at 2560x1600. The tablet, which is only 8.9mm thick runs on a dual-core A15 processor.
