A post this morning on Google’s official blog has revealed pricing for all their new Nexus products.
Without further ado, here’s the list:
- Nexus 4: 8GB for $299; 16GB for $349; available unlocked and without a contract on 11/13 on the Google Play store in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. The 16GB version will also be available through T-Mobile for $199, with a 2-year contract (check here for more details).
- Nexus 7: 16GB for $199 and 32GB for $249; available in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan, and also through our retail partners Gamestop, Office Depot, Office Max, Staples, Walmart.
- Nexus 7 with 32GB and mobile data: $299 and unlocked, on sale 11/13 in the Google Play store in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada.
- Nexus 10: 16GB for $399; 32GB for $499; available on 11/13 in the Google Play Store in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan.
The 8GB Nexus 4 is set to go on sale for $299, while the 16GB version is $349. It is compatible with any GSM/HSPA+ carrier, but unfortunately doesn’t support LTE (sorry Sprint and Verizon customers). The 16GB version in particular is a fantastic value compared to other unlocked flagship smartphones.
The already excellent Nexus 7 (N7) tablet line gets a new 32GB model for the same $249 price that the 16GB used to carry, while the 16GB model drops down to $199. For those interested in a N7 with mobile data capability, a 32GB will be available for $299.
Finally the Nexus 10 tablet will be available in a 16GB model for $399 and a 32GB model for $499. The pricing undercuts Apple’s iPad line by $100 for comparable models. The Nexus 10 features a cutting edge cortex A15 1.7ghz Exynos 5250 processor, a Mali-604 GPU, 2GB of RAM, and a iPad retina display beating 2560 x 1600 10.1″ display. This gives the Nexus 10 a PPI of 300 compared with the 264 of the current iPad.
The refreshed Nexus 7 tablets are available now, while the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 will be available through the Google Play Store on November 13th. The entire Nexus family launches with Android 4.2
