Google launches new Nexus 7, Nexus 10 tablets


Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) on Monday launched two new tablets together with a new Nexus 4 smartphone. The new Nexus 7 tablet offers between 16GB or 32GB of storage and costs $199, and $249, respectively. A mobile version with HSPA+ will also be available for $299 and comes with 32GB of storage.

The larger Nexus 10 tablet, on the other hand, will come with an astoundingly high-resolution, 10-inch display with a 2560x1600 resolution. Made by Samsung, this works out to 300ppi, which is higher than the Retina iPad--and touted by Google as the highest on the planet. The Nexus 10 is available in 16GB and 32GB, and will cost $399 and $499, respectively.

All devices will run Android 4.2, which includes a number of new features. Some of the features that are most significant for businesses would probably be its support for multiple users. This allows additional user accounts to be configured and for users to switch between them from the lock screen--effectively narrowing the gap between a traditional desktop operating system. Moreover, support for Miracast wireless displays allows for AirPlay-like video streaming to TVs or displays that support the new standard.

In my opinion, the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 are tablets with impressive specifications that also come with Android 4.2 under the hood. You can read up about the other features of the latest features in Android 4.2 in the official blog post here.
