    It looks like Google couldn't wait to share their excitement despite hurricane Sandy ruining their press event. They went ahead and launched their new Nexus lineup on their Google Blog. Here's the summary, which confirms nearly every rumor we heard previously:
    • First, they are launching a 32GB Nexus 7 tablet after-all. It will be at the $249.99 price point, replacing the 16GB model at that price point. The 16GB model moves downward, replacing the 8GB model at the $199.99 price point.
    • Second, Google is indeed launching their newest version of Android Jelly Bean, version 4.2.
    • Third, Google is launching the new Nexus 4 smartphone, manufactured by LG with this new OS.
    • Fourth, Google is launching the new Nexus 10 Android Tablet.
    Here are the details below on the pricing structure. You will notice that some of these prices are extremely competitive, especially the new Nexus 10 tablet.
    The rumored specs on the Nexus 4 pretty much turned out to be dead-on, and as you can see above, it comes in two varieties, 8GB and 16GB. Of course we already know the specs of the 32GB Nexus 7. Coming up in a bit we will have a separate story with full specs of the new Nexus 10 "iPad killer."

    Finally, Android 4.2 will have a host of new intriguing features, including improved photo sharing, gesture typing and more. You can check out the full array of new features here: Android - What's New

    Great post, all the info in one place, thanks dgstorm! :)

    The pricing of the Nexus 10 is indeed surprising - a flagship model, top of the line hardware, undercutting the Apple iPad for $100 or 20% ? That's aggressive pricing indeed.

    Would hope there's some left-over Nexus 7 8GB models in stock, they could be very nice buys if discounted (maybe $150?).

    Two Thumbs up. Cheers. ;)

    The 10 seems like a nice tablet, and I'd seriously consider buying one if it had an SD card slot. No SD, no sale.
