Google may not have been able to hold its scheduled press event thanks to Hurricane Sandy, but that doesn’t mean they were going to hold back on their announcements. While a blog post may not make for a very exciting presentation, that’s how Google announced the Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and changes for the Nexus 7.

The Nexus 4 smartphone will be developed by LG and will likely be Google’s answer to the iPhone 5. It will house a Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, a 4.7-inch high-resolution display, front and rear cameras, wireless charging capabilities, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. A $299 8GB model and $349 16GB model will be available on November 13. It will also be available on T-Mobile for $199 with a two-year contract.

The Nexus 10, which Google built with Samsung, is supposedly the “highest-resolution tablet on the planet.” It’s 10-inch screen can display a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution and 300 pixels-per-inch. It’s thinner and lighter than the latest iPad at 8.9 mm and 1.33 pounds, runs a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, and features front and back cameras. Like the Nexus 4, it will also run Android 4.2.

The Nexus 7 hit the scene earlier this year, but Google is dropping the price and adding a mobile data option. The 16GB and 32GB models will be $199 and $249 respectively; that’s a $50 discount on both models. A 32GB version with HSPA+ connectivity will cost $299 without a contract.
