The tablets wars are showing no signs of slowing down. Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) unveiled a new 10-inch tablet on Monday starting at $399 and also announced that the Nexus 7, its seven-inch tablet, will now be available in a cellular version in the U.S. on AT&T’s (NYSE:T) network.
Google was forced to cancel its Nexus 10 launch event in New York City due to the approaching hurricane, but went ahead and announced the device’s arrival nonetheless. Made by Samsung, the 10.1-inch tablet sports a 2,560 x 1,600 display that gives it 300 pixels per inch, higher than the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad’s Retina display at a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536. The iPad starts at $499.

The Nexus 10 can last up to 9 hours for video playback and has a standby time of over 500 hours, Android chief Andy Rubin wrote in a blog post. It will run Jelly Bean, Android’s newest version, which enables the addition of multiple users to the tablet. The tablet will be available on Google’s online store starting November 13 in the U.S., the U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada, and Japan.
The Nexus 7 has also been given additional storage, with the $199 version now offering 16GB of storage instead of the previous 8GB. The 32GB cellular-equipped version of the smaller tablet will sell for $299, cheaper than Apple’s entry-level 16 GB and Wi-Fi only iPad mini that retails at $329.
The search company also announced its Nexus 4 smartphone, which was developed with LG, has a 4.7-inch screen, and features wireless charging capability. It starts at $200 with a T-Mobile contract or $300 without a contract.
