Google correctly made the decision to cancel their press conference on Monday, but it did not hold back the announcement of three new and greatly anticipated devices. The Nexus 10 tablet, made by Samsung, will be available for purchase from Google’s Play Store on November 13th. The 16GB model coming in at $399.
As for the unlocked LG Nexus 4 release date, that too will be on November 13th, which is a Tuesday. The entry-level model is priced at $299 and comes with a paltry 8GB of storage. If you don’t utilize your phone for music, movies and apps that might require a ton of space, there is some very good value with this phone. One other potential drawback is the lack of 4G LTE. With wireless carriers still rolling out their LTE networks, this might not be a deal breaker for some. I currently live on the fringe of LTE, so might see 4G in the next few weeks or months. If I had plans on using this handset past that timeframe, it might not make sense. I suspect many will go through a similar thought process when considering the Nexus 4.
Unlocked. Contract free. Under $300. Hard to ignore those benefits.
