Earlier I posted a blog about Nexus rumors, and now some of them get to come true!
Earlier this week on Monday, Google had an event scheduled were they were going to announce new stuff about Android. Due to the hurricane, it had to be cancelled, but Google still ended up announcing their new devices, and a new Android OS version!
Also, there have been only really two complaints about the device. One, that it doesn't have a MicroSD card slot, and two, that it doesn't support 4G LTE. Let me just explain this real quick: Google doesn't include MircoSD card slots because it's a risk to security, and because it can cause errors. And secondly, they don't include 4G LTE because it's a MAJOR battery drainer. The HSPA+ that they do include, however, is 42Mbps, just as fast as LTE. So don't worry about either of those issues!
Google repriced and added a bunch of new stuff to their super popular Nexus 7 tablet. The 16GB model which formerly cost $249, is now only $199, with a 32GB model for $249. They also made an HSPA+ 32GB model available for only $299. This is, of course, again, amazingly cheap. There's also been reports that the Nexus 7 is actually getting more popular as time goes on. They started off at selling about 500 thousand devices a month, and they're now selling nearly a million devices every month. It's pretty uncommon for devices to get more popular as they get older.
The new version of Android! It's still called Jelly Bean, but it brings it some amazing features. It allows for photo spheres, which basically allow you to create your own street view type of files with your phone. It also allow for multiple accounts on tablets, which allow different people to share the same tablet. Also, it has a drop-down power menu!
