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.

Huawei Shows Off The Honor 2 With 1.4Ghz Quad-Core And 2GB of RAM

Huawei has been steadily increasing its high-end offerings for the last year or so, and their latest offering is the top-of-the-line Honor 2. Last year's model gets upgraded in just about every possible way, starting with Huawei's own quad-core K3 V2 processor clocked at a blistering 1.4Ghz. Pair that with 2GB of RAM and you've got potent hardware in anybody's money... though to put down a pre-order, you'll need some yuan. Pre-orders for the Honor 2 in China will begin later this week, with a price of 1888 CNY, or about $302.

In addition to those high-class innards, the Honor 2 uses a 4.5-inch 720p IPS screen, fitting in just below other flagships.

Tons Of Stores Now List 16GB Nexus 7 At $199, A Few Selling 32GB For $249, Confirming Rumors

Following yesterday's price drop at GameStop, it looks like the Nexus 7 is slashing prices everywhere. Staples, Sam's Club, Office Depot, Wal-Mart, and a few other places all list the tablet at $199 (or a rough foreign equivalent). What's a little more rare is the 32GB Nexus 7 going up for sale in a few locations, though it's unclear how approved that is. Sam's Club has it up for order here, and PC Advisor is reporting that at least one user was able to buy the slate from PC World by asking for it, though it wasn't on display.

[Update: In Stock] New Pink And Light Blue Nexus 7 Cases Show Up In The Play Store, Listed As 'Coming Soon'

Way back in July, we saw a leak revealing several new Nexus 7 accessories, including a Pogo Dock, "premium cover," and multiple colors of travel cover, like the grey one that has been available since launch. Two new colors -- pink and light blue -- of that case have now showed up in the Play Store, with availability listed as "coming soon."

As you can see, the two cases are priced equal to their grey counterpart, coming in at $20. We're still waiting to see the rest of colors, along with the other accessories (c'mon, pogo dock!), so maybe these new arrivals are a good sign.

First Video Of LG Nexus 4 Shows Up On Swedish Blog, Shows Off Android 4.2 And Quick Settings

At this point, the LG Nexus 4 is the most-leaked phone since, well, that other phone. Today a video from the carrier 3 in Sweden has popped up on YouTube with a near two minute look at the device, showing us around Android 4.2 a bit. The phone itself looks just like all the pictures we've seen. The video also confirms the Quick Settings menu Ron found. Conveniently, users will access it via a button, not a second pull-down shade.

Update: The video was pulled, but we've added a mirror. Once something's on the internet, it's there for good.

[New App] FlipLauncher Is An Ultra-Quick Way To Launch Apps From Anywhere

Most of our readers consider themselves power users, and rightly so. Perhaps you don't have a spare 1.8 seconds to laboriously tap the Home button, then the app launcher, then that app you use every third Tuesday. Well, obsessive customizers, your new best friend on the Google Play Store is FlipLauncher, a free app that embeds up to five completely adjustable launcher ribbons over any and every part of Android.

Don't let its admittedly plain looks fool you: FlipLauncher is surprisingly versatile. By default, it puts five candy-colored tabs on the left side of your screen. Swipe right on any of them to open up a ribbon, which can hold four apps or shortcuts.

Nexus 7 16GB Now Out Of Stock In Google Play Store

Adding more fuel to the Nexus 7 rumor fire, Google has just pulled the 7" slate's 16GB variant off its virtual shelves, listing the device as "coming soon."

This comes after some fast and furious price drops were spotted at both GameStop and Office Depot, taking the 16GB N7 down to the rumor-approved $199 price point, perhaps in preparation for the arrival of a 32GB (and, dare we say, potentially 3G-enabled) variant of the device.

You may remember that the 8GB Nexus 7 met a similar fate just under one week ago after speculation that it may be getting canned for good, though we fully expect the 16GB version to make a return.

Tomorrow's Google Event Isn't The Only Thing That's Cancelled - D: Dive Into Mobile Postponed

Hurricane Sandy is just not letting anyone catch a break. In addition to causing the cancelation of Google's Android event, where we were expecting the company to tell us about a whole bunch of fun stuff, it looks like D: Dive Into Mobile is also being postponed.  Among many others, Andy Rubin was scheduled to speak at the event.

2012-10-28_23h55_20

As of right now, All Things D has not said when the event will be rescheduled for. We imagine we won't hear any prospective replacement dates until the hurricane has passed. Of course, as gadget nerds, we're not thrilled that yet another event is being postponed due to the hurricane, but the safety of the attendees is obviously the most important.
