SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 13, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. We had a pretty big day, what with the reveal of the HTC DROID DNA and all. HTC announced that the DROID DNA will be arriving at Verizon on November 21, and we even managed to go hands-on with the device and its wireless charging dock. Of course, today was also the day that the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 became available on the Google Play Store. All but the 16GB Nexus 10 sold through pretty quickly, so we hope you got your hands on the device you wanted before Google put up the out of stock notices.

Nexus 4 sells out in UK in 30 minutes as Play woes prompt anger

Nexus 4 sells out in UK in 30 minutes as Play woes prompt anger

Google's new Nexus 4 went up for sale in Europe and Australia this morning, promptly selling out in minutes and leaving potential customers furious at the stability of the Play store. The new smartphone - which hit Google's virtual shelves alongside the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets, supplies of some of which are patchy - lured buyers in with its competitively low unsubsidized price, to the point where the Play store apparently couldn't handle the influx of users and threw up numerous errors.

Android 4.2 OTA brings lock screen widgets and multi-user support

Android 4.2 OTA brings lock screen widgets and multi-user support

Those of you working with one of the three Nexus devices currently offered up by Google, those being the Nexus 4 and 10, will be glad to know that an Android 4.2 OTA update has begun rolling out. This update includes two major updates into what we already knew was supposed to be possible with this Jelly Bean+ build, that being Lock screen widgets and Multi-user support. It would appear that this update will be the one that the devices will be shipping with - or at least what they'll be updated to rather quickly after their release.

Nexus is the tonic to Apple and Microsoft greed says Google exec

Nexus is the tonic to Apple and Microsoft greed says Google exec

Google's Nexus program is a push back against Apple and Microsoft greed, an Android exec has argued, describing Motorola Mobility as a way to "disarm" attacks on the OS rather than segue into hardware. "There are players in the industry who were unhappy about more competitive pricing for the consumers" John Lagerling, director of Android business development, told Bits, pointing to the relatively affordable Nexus 4 as an example of how Google is shaking up the smartphone and tablet space, and relying on Motorola for patent ammunition should the search giant get called out in court.

Nexus 10 Review

Nexus 10 Review

Google's Nexus 7 demonstrated that the search giant should be taken seriously in affordable tablets; now, the Nexus 10 has arrived to prove Android has big-screen star quality. Offering a display that out-Retinas Apple's iPad and no shortage of top-tier specifications, the Samsung-made Nexus 10 also manages to do all that while undercutting the iPad 4 by $100. Android tablets have always had more of a problem than ticking the spec sheet, though, so does the combination of Jelly Bean 4.2 and the Nexus 10 mark a real turning point? Read on for our full review.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 30, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. We had so many big posts today that it's hard to know where to start. Kicking things off, we're live at Microsoft Build 2012, bringing you the latest on Windows 8, Surface, and Windows Phone 8. We also went hands-on with the Samsung Nexus 10 and the LG Nexus 4 today, so be sure to check those out if you're thinking about picking up either (or both!) when they launch next month. Today we found out that Disney is buying out LucasFilm and that Star Wars Episode VII is in the works - both of those were major announcements for the millions of Star Wars fans out there.

Google Nexus 10 hands-on

Google Nexus 10 hands-on

Samsung has out-Retina'd Apple, and Google is definitely making the most of it. The Nexus 10 tablet may not have had the New York City debut it was promised, but even with a low-key press release its segment-busting specifications catch your eye. A 10.1-inch, 2,560 x 1,600 display breaks through the 300dpi pixel density mark, easily satisfying the "individual pixels indistinguishable at typical use-distance" criteria Apple created, while inside there's Samsung's own 1.7GHz dualcore Exynos 5250 with 2GB of RAM. If the Nexus 7 is Google's attempt to conquer the bargain mainstream, then the Nexus 10 is its assault on the very high-end, giving Android 4.2 Jelly Bean everything it needs in hardware in order to shine.
