Google Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 UK prices and release dates

Google's lifted the lid on two new Nexus devices running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Here's everything you need to know.

Google's lifted the lid on two new Nexus devices -- a smart phone and a 10-inch tablet, built by LG and Samsung respectively. Here's what you need to know about these new raw-Android devices, when you can buy them and how much you'll be paying.

LG Nexus 4

The long-rumoured LG Nexus 4 is here at last, and it's mega-cheap. £239 gets you a SIM-free, 8GB, quad-core smart phone with a 4.7-inch, 768x1,280-pixel display -- those are specifications easily on par with the Samsung Galaxy S3.

If that's not enough storage, £279 gets you the 16GB option. There doesn't appear to be any expandable memory -- or 4G -- but those are small prices to pay when you're paying such a small price.

Google says the Nexus 4 is out on 13 November -- we'll let you know when we hear about contract options, though Pocket-Lint reports that O2 will have a month's exclusivity on offering this high-end, wallet-friendly mobile.

If you're on a different network don't despair, the phone is almost cheap enough that you could probably just buy SIM-free and switch to a rolling monthly SIM-only contract.

Samsung Nexus 10

Samsung is getting in on the Nexus fun, with a 10-inch tablet dubbed the Nexus 10. This tablet boasts a stonkingly high 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution screen -- that's higher than Apple's retina display iPad.

It comes in either 16GB or 32GB versions. The 16GB model costs £319, while the higher-capacity option will set you back £389. That's not quite a Nexus 4-level bargain, but it still seems reasonable.

There's a 5-megapixel rear camera and 2GB of RAM, which suggests a healthy amount of power under the bonnet. It weighs 603g and is 8.9mm thick.

We'll know more when we give it the full review treatment -- for now we know it'll be released on 13 November, just like the Nexus 4.
