Storms and leaks may have rained on Google's parade, but it's decided to stick with Plan A and has officially announced a trio of new Nexus devices as planned today, all of which will go on sale on November 13.
The three devices are now well known: the Samsung-made Nexus 10 tablet, a new “Mobile” (as in 3G) version of the existing Nexus 7 tablet that also has 32GB of storage, and the LG-made Nexus 4 smartphone.
Both the Nexus 10 and Nexus 4 have been heavily leaked over the past few days, removing pretty much all of the mystery surrounding what for a while there was a confusing mess of multiple rumours swirling around simultaneously.
Even the new version of the Nexus 7 was widely called, down to its lack of LTE support (like the Nexus 4). It's HSPA+ only, meaning no 4G-happy version for us in the UK anytime soon.
Let's get straight to the prices. The Nexus 10 will be available from the Google Play store on November 13 for £319 (16GB) or £389 (32GB), the 32GB HSPA+ Nexus 7 will cost £239, while the 32GB Wi-Fi-only version is available already for £199, with the 16GB dropping to £159.
Lastly, the Google Nexus 4 will cost £239 in 8GB guise, and £279 for the 16GB option.
Let's quickly confirm the hardware specs, based both on what we've heard today and what we already know:
