Google released Android 4.2 and new Nexus handsets and tablets

Owing to Hurricane Sandy, Google cancelled its Android media event that was supposed to take place on a pier in New York. But that hasn’t stopped them from unveiling the new Nexus devices and Android 4.2 as planned.

Next we will introduce the brand new Android 4.2, Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.

Android 4.2 will still go by Android 4.1’s name Jelly Bean and first ship on Google and LG’s new Nexus 4 handset and Samsung’s Nexus 10 tablet on November 13.

Android 4.2 does bring a significant improvement to the popular, open-source mobile operating system. The new features brought by it includes a “photo sphere” that lets you take 360 degree images and Gesture Typing, which lets you compose messages by running your hand from key to key. With Android 4.2, you can add multiple users and switch between them instantly right from the lockscreen.

Nexus 4 has 4.7-inch display with full-HD resolution at 1280×768. Its 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM will make it the fastest phone on the market. An 8 megapixel camera, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2100 mah battery that can purportedly last 10 hours of talk time may become the major factors that makes you to choose it.

While the Nexus 10 is a full “Google Experience” device, all aspects of its operating system and software that is loaded onto the tablet is under Google’s control. It is the first Android tablet which truly represents a direct challenge to Apple’s iPad. With a 10.055″ display at 2560-by-1600 (300ppi) and a powerful battery that will get you up to nine hours of video playback and more than 500 hours of standby time, it will create powerful attraction.
