Nexus 10 vs iPad 4th Gen

Nexus 10 vs iPad 4th Gen

It would appear that amongst the software and hardware releases Google has detailed this week is their first giant iPad competitor in the Google Nexus 10. At first glance the differences might not be abundant to an everyday average user other than the obvious Android vs iOS and feel of each device. As it turns out though, these two tablets, for the first time, create a battle between the iPad and an Android-toting tablet made not just by a major manufacturer, but Google as well.

How does Android 4.2 Jelly Bean wireless display mirroring work?

How does Android 4.2 Jelly Bean wireless display mirroring work?

If you're like me, the first time you heard of wireless display mirroring, your first question was - how? With Google's new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean+ operating system update, wireless mirroring is included in the code - but how does that work without the hardware to back it up? As it turns out, this whole situation has to do with Miracast wireless display sharing - an industry standard that allows your device to connect to larger device's displays using your wi-fi network as a middle-man.

What’s new in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean?

What’s new in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean?

It's time for Google's mobile OS to get another boost, with Android 4.1 turning to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with a new set of features galore. This update is largely improving upon what was revealed with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, effectively making it more of a "full" update than an incremental one - unless of course you consider that and this as increments, of course. This software will be working on the Google Nexus 10 from Samsung and the LG Nexus 4, tablet and smartphone environments alike.

Nexus 10 detailed as “highest resolution on the planet” tablet

Nexus 10 detailed as “highest resolution on the planet” tablet

This morning Google has gone through with announcing their full set of devices and software even without the accompanying event - hitting it all off with the Nexus 10, a tablet with a rather sharp display. This device has a 10.1-inch display with 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution (300ppi by Google's count) and a battery they say will last 500 hours on standby - or 9 hours playing video. This unit works with a front-facing set of stereo speakers not unlike the Galaxy Note 10.1 or Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and is indeed made by Samsung.

Sandy stops Google (but new Android news was hardly a mystery)

Sandy stops Google (but new Android news was hardly a mystery)

It would appear that the force of nature named Sandy did not want her good friend Microsoft to be washed out by Android news just one week after the fact, as today's Google event was cancelled on account of her rapid approach. That's all well and good, and Google is certainly going to have a replacement event, but what we know already of the event is... well... more than likely basically everything. Start your journey down this path of explosive news with the release - regardless of a lack of announcement - of the 32GB version of the Nexus 7, out in stores right this minute if you know where to look. From there it's all software and a few surprises in the Nexus universe, too.

Google Nexus 10 appears in painfully short video

At this point, we're pretty sure that the LG Nexus 4, the Samsung Nexus 10, and the Nexus 7 32GB all exist. We were supposed to find out if our suspicious are correct on Monday, but thanks to the threat of Hurricane Sandy, Google has been forced to postpone its Android event that was originally scheduled for October 29. Thankfully, the folks at BriefMobile are here with a new video to whet our appetite for some Nexus 10 action, giving us a brief glimpse at the much-rumored tablet.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 26, 2012

Welcome to Friday evening, everyone. Today was a pretty big day in the world of tech, with both Windows 8 and Microsoft Surface launching and the iPad mini going up for pre-order. Microsoft was actually handing out £50 coupons to the Microsoft Store for giving those in the UK who pre-ordered a Surface conflicting messages about when it will ship, and the company even managed launch Xbox Smartglass for Android alongside Surface and Windows. Microsoft said it will be giving Windows 8 Pro users a free upgrade to Media Center, while Steven Sinofsky talked up the company's new products, managing to get a couple of shots in at Apple at the same time.

If Google’s Nexus line gets wireless charging, will Apple follow suit?

If Google’s Nexus line gets wireless charging, will Apple follow suit?

When a major competitor releases a hero product to the market that they intend to keep around for some time to come, you as a tech company have an opportunity - for Google, that opportunity exists in the absence of wireless battery charging in the iPhone 5. An image has been making the rounds today that very much appears to be approximately half of a Nexus Q - but is being called a wireless charging unit for the Nexus 4. The Nexus 4 is almost certainly going to be revealed on Monday by Google at their big Android event [we'll be there!] as the same unit that's been shown in a rather giant amount of leaked images over the past few weeks - with wireless charging via this pad, has Google suddenly one-upped Apple, not to mention Nokia?

It's time to get ultra-powerful with the Google Nexus 10, a tablet made by Samsung whose details have been spilled essentially in full in both a couple of photos and details galore today. This device has been manufactured by Samsung and does not appear to be all that far away from the Galaxy Note 10 or the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 in its form, but its innards are all new and fabulous. The folks at BriefMobile have let this chicken loose in the farmyard with the photo of the front you see here and the screenshot details you see below, they coming complete with Android 4.2 - the next generation Google mobile OS.
