Google Inc. (GOOG) Unveils Smaller, Larger Nexus Devices

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) got into the smartphone market with handsets featuring various installments of the Android operating system, and into the tablet space with the introduction of the Nexus 7 last year. However, Monday the company announced a couple of new devices that would create an ecosystem – if the Nexus 7 is Medium, then Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) has just introduced Small and Large mobile devices for the ecosystem.

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), despite all of the headlines Monday focusing on the events surrounding Hurricane Sandy, unveiled two new mobile devices at an event in California. Google Inc. (GOOG) unveiled the Nexus 4 smartphone to be made by LG Electronics Co., and the new Nexus 10 tablet computer made by Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., which are expected to be direct competitors to the iPhone 5 and the iPad 4, respectively, from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).

The Nexus 4, which sports a 4-inch display, has a feature where it can double as a video-game controller when connected wirelessly to a TV set, and it has a panorama view in its camera that is “unlike any panorama you have ever seen,” according to Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG).

As for the Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Nexus 10 tablet, the company boasts its screen that will sport a resolution of market-high 300 ppi and be 10 inches – which is comparable to the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad. The company  says the tablet had 100,000 apps currently available and it will have a 500-hour battery life on standby and nine-hour life during video game play. The new tablet is expected to retail a 16GB version at $399, which is $100 less than the comparably equipped iPad.

With this unveiling, the stage is being set for a highly competitive smartphone and tablet market for this holiday shopping season, which is something that likely will be closely watched by investors in Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) stock, including billionaire fund manager Julian Robertson of Tiger Management.
