After the hot sales around 2 weeks ago,Google finally sent out notifications telling that Nexus 4 will be ready to order on November 27 at 12:00 noon PST (U.S. only) at Google Play Store.
Nexus 4 is the latest product from Google Nexus family with the most powerful Quad core processor Qualcomm Sanpdragon S4 Pro with 2GB RAM and the latest Anroid 4.2 Jelly Bean.It was sold out in less than one hour last time in Google Play Store.
If you want to handle that cool toy in your hand,get ready to order it at the right time.Good luck!
Because of Hurricane Sandy,Google cancelled the event to officially release Nexus 4,the new flagship Android phone in Nexus series;Nexus 7,with lower prices and bigger storage;Nexus 10,the 10 inch Android tablet with the latest functions and powerful hardware.However,all have been pushed into Google Play Store online.
Nexus 4 is the smallest one among all new products,however,it has a powerful heart.This flagship Android phone is built by LG,working with the latest 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro Processor and 2GB RAM.
The 4.7 inch 1280X768(320ppi) display screen is really amazing.It’s tough as it is covered and protected by scratch resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2.
The 8MP camera will never let you lose a scene.It now supports 360° panoramas with the new feature in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean called ‘Photo Sphere’.
After all,the most amazing thing is about the price-8GB version selling at US$299 while 16GB version selling at US$349.I think that is really a bargain as It even supports DC-HSPA+(42Mbps).
Google Translate gets the latest update today.In this version,it starts to support translating the texts in a picture.
Yes,you just have to take a photo and brush the text and you could get the meaning in your own language(currently only available to English,Spanish,Chinese and part of the Arabic).
Once you highlight the texts you want to translate,you could get your result almost immediately.It’s really great when reading some documents with professional vocabulary or travelling in a city where you’re not familiar with their languages.
Of course,it’s not the only thing Google Translate can do.
With Google Translate you can:
• Translate text between 64 languages
• Translate by speaking the text instead of typing it (17 languages)
• Use camera to take a picture and brush text to translate (available on Android 2.3 and above).
• Listen to your translations spoken aloud (40 languages)
• Communicate with another person using speech-to-speech translation in Conversation Mode (ALPHA, 14 languages)
• Display translations in full screen mode to make it easier for others nearby to read
• Star your favorite translations for quick access even when you’re offline
• Access your translation history even when you’re offline
• Spell out the translation of non-Latin script languages (e.g. Chinese, Japanese, etc..) in Latin characters to read it phonetically (e.g. Pinyin, Romaji)
• View additional dictionary results for single words or short phrases
• Push the handwriting button and simply write what you want to translate
This is another hotspot on the first day of Google I/O 2012,however,it’s been a rumor for quite long time.Google never stop to find a product which could beat Amazon Kindle Fire or Apple iPad and they hope Nexus 7 will be that one.
It has a 7″ 1280*800 HD display screen with Scratch-resistant Corning Glass,1.2MP front camera,of course,it’s got Android Beam(NFC).It weighs at 340g,lighter than iPad and most of tablets.The Tegra 3 Quad core processor empowers the device with great graphic performances while playing games,watching HD videos etc.The 1GB RAM also helps the device to run smoothly with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and with 8GB/16GB internal memory,you could make it your portable entertainment device easily.
However,Nexus 7 has no back camera and 3G/4G support which let me think it may not be so good when we use it on the move.I have to admit that only $199 for 8GB version is impressive,but I prefer to have a device supporting 3G/4G and perhaps $100 higher than this one.How about you?
If you have interest on it,you could pre-order it at Google Play(free $25 Google Play credit).It’s only available in US now and will start to deliver from mid of July.More countries will be in the delivery list later.
