T-Mobile Set To Carry Google's Nexus 4 And 3G Nexus 7 As Premier Launch Partner

In addition to the absolute mania of incoming announcements we saw from Google today, there was one interesting carrier-related development for the Nexus line – T-Mobile, the US' fourth largest carrier, announced that it would be carrying Google's LG-built Nexus 4 and ASUS-built 3G Nexus 7 as a "premier launch partner" starting this November. In fact, users can already sign up for more info at T-Mobile's website.

Nexus 10 Is Official, Priced At $400 With A Stunning 2560x1600 Display And Android 4.2

The Nexus 10 is official at last, and it's just as fantastic as we all thought it would be. The Samsung-made 10.1" tablet packs an iPad-destroying 2560x1600 display for 300ppi, which is known in the scientific community as "more pixels than your eye can handle." The slate will also ship with Android 4.2, and the updated Nexus 7-like UI.

In addition, the tablet boasts up to nine hours of video playback and 500 hours of standby time. Just to make sure you're aware that it's designed for consuming media, it comes with front-facing stereo speakers. This thing is sounding pretty dang nice.

[Weekend Poll] Do You Prefer The Classic 10" Tablet Layout, Or The New Hybrid UI?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Pick A Phablet Edition: HTC DLX, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Or LG Optimus Vu II?

The release of the Nexus 7 brought a new phone/tablet hybrid UI to Android tablets. And today, most people agree that it works well - on the 7-inch form factor, anyway. The latest leaks from the upcoming Nexus 10 suggest that Google will keep using that same hybrid UI, despite having a display that's a few inches bigger in each direction.

As David correctly pointed out, the result is that the phone and tablet UIs are now virtually identical.

Say Hello To The Nexus 10 With Android 4.2 – Photos, Specs Emerge [Update: Video]

UPDATE: BriefMobile has just given us another treat, catching a (very) quick video of the Nexus 10, showing off – to some extent – its speed, and the 4.2 lockscreen in landscape mode. While the video is short, it does more justice to the device's overall form factor than probably any single photo we saw yesterday.

The post also suggests that the slate's display might be an IPS panel after all, as BriefMobile's source indicates the display has color reproduction and clarity similar to HTC's SLCD2 panel.

You know how everyone is excited for Google's Android event on Monday (October 29)? Sorry to rain on your parade (heh), but they just cancelled it thanks to Hurricane Sandy.

No word yet on when it will be rescheduled for, but obviously we'll let you know as soon as we do. Until then, you can always console yourself by checking out what we expected to see at the event - namely, Android 4.2, the Nexus 10, and the Nexus 4.

LG Nexus 4 Quick Start Guide Available For Download From LG's Own Site, Confirms 16GB Model And Wireless Charging

Google is set to officially announce the LG-built Nexus 4 on Monday, but it looks like LG's UK division got a little ahead of itself and has posted an official LGE960 quick start guide online for all to see. This device has been thoroughly leaked by this point, but there are a few interesting tidbits to be gleaned from this PDF.

First, the file name identifies this as a US device with 16GB of storage. So if you were worried the previously leaked 8GB model was all we'd have, fear not. The back of the device has that large Nexus branding from the more recent leaks.

Carphone Warehouse Can't Stay Out Of The News, Leaks Alleged £389 SIM-Free Price For Nexus 4, White And Black Options

At this point, this one online retailer has leaked more information than we have space on the internet to put it. This time, the inventory system that previously leaked the name of the Nexus 4 is showing with color options and a price tag in tow. Apparently this device will cost £389 without a SIM. For our American readers, the exchange rate would bring that out to about $628, though we imagine they'll massage the number a bit by the time it hits the states.

We also see that there will apparently be a white version to go along with the black.

Carphone Warehouse Outs The Nexus 4 (Again), Claims Pre-Orders Ship By October 30th

It seems a little fitting that the first site to give us an indication of when we'll get our hands on the Nexus 4 was also the first site to leak its name. According to a device listing page that has now been pulled, the newest, shiniest, sparkliest Google hardware may be available pretty soon after the announcement next week. The Carphone Warehouse says that pre-orders will ship on October 30th. Dang, that's fast.

Of course, don't take that as canon, since there's a lot of suspicious stuff going on in this page. For starters, the press shot of the Nexus 4 being used here is the same one we spotted yesterday on evleaks.

The Playground Is Open Again: What To Expect From Google's Android Event On October 29th

After seeing a deluge of rumors, leaks, and hoax after hoax this season, it looks like we're finally starting to wind down. With Google's Android event a mere 8 days away, it's time to clear away the muck and take a look at what we expect to make an appearance just a couple days before Halloween. Let's start with the stuff we're most confident in and work our way down, shall we?

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

We were already fairly confident that the next version of Android would not be 5.0. While Google is inconsistent with its naming and number scheme, The company does tend to at least save full number releases for big changes (2.0 brought a huge face lift, Navigation and the Droid, 3.0 introduced tablets, 4.0 brought tablets and phones together under the biggest UI change yet).

Breaking: Google Is Holding An Android Event On October 29th

An invite for an Android event held by Google just hit our inbox - on October 29th, in New York, we'll be seeing the latest and greatest from Google in regard to its mobile operating system.

It has been widely speculated that the focus of this event will be on two things: a new Nexus phone, and Android 4.2. It's becoming increasingly apparent that Android 4.2 is a fairly incremental update to the OS (see our teardowns of an alpha build of 4.2, here and here), so the focus has largely shifted to the next Nexus.

Rest assured, we'll be there.
