Google was scheduled to unveil to significant devices at its press event - LG's Nexus 4 smartphone and a 10-inch Nexus tablet. The details and specifications of these products are already known, and now to add to Google's woes, a video of the upcoming tablet has been made public.
Hurricane Sandy turned out to be a nightmare for Google, forcing the Internet giant to postpone its Oct. 29 Android event. Rubbing salt into the wounds, pictures and leaked manuals of unannounced Google products have surfaced on the Internet.
LG accidentally posted a quick start guide for the Nexus 4 on its Web site on Friday, Oct. 26. Presently, the link is offline but folks at Droid Life managed to preserve a copy of the quick start guide (PDF). The document confirms a Nexus 4 with 16GB and 32GB storage versions and featuring integrated wireless charging.
According to rumors, the device will have 4.6-inch display with 1,280 by 768 pixels resolution, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a non-removable battery.
Another spoiler comes from BriefMobile, which has a hands-on video of the Nexus 10 tablet. The video is short, just five seconds, and does not show too many details of the tablet or Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. However, it is long enough to show that the newer version of Android operating system will bring a new lockscreen.
The Nexus 10 tablet will also pack in a quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.7GHz with 2GB of RAM, according to the BriefMobile report. The Exynos 5 or 5250, utilizes the latest Cortex A15 architecture and has quad-core Mali T604 GPU on board. Other specifications of the tablet include a Super AMOLED display with 2,560 x 1,600 pixels resolution, 16GB of internal storage, Near Field Communication (NFC), a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a front-facing VGA camera.
Google is expected to competitively price the tablet against Apple's iPad mini, which retails for $329 for a 16GB model. Calling the Nexus 10 "Android tablet Messiah", folks at ZDNet believe that Google will sell the Nexus 10 at a sub-$400 price, possibly $349.
Unfortunately, Google is left with no surprises up its sleeve after the rumor mill leaked all the details of the Android event, which has been rescheduled and will take place at an unannounced date.
