On Monday, October 29, Google launched its latest devices, including the new line of Nexus smartphones. One big device released was the larger version of the Nexus 7 that started shipping in July. Will you sell iPad for this new tablet?

The new line of Nexus smartphones is made by LG Electronics. It also has minor updates to the Android operating system that currently powers up to 500 million devices worldwide. Another update will come next year.

On the other hand, the large Nexus tablet computer is made by Samsung Electronics and has a display screen of about 10 inches diagonally.

Google released its own larger tablet a week after Apple released its smaller tablet, which is less expensive than the standard iPad. The iPad Mini has a 7.9-inch screen and will compete with the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire. This smaller iPad will launch to the public on Friday.

Experts are still wondering whether or not consumers will want the iPad Mini, as $329 is too expensive for a 16GB tablet. It looks like the Nexus 7 will still dominate the smaller tablet market, as it’s available for just $199. The Kindle Fire, however, is cheaper, starting at $159.

Meanwhile, the new Nexus 10 tablet will retail for $399 if you want the 16GB of storage. Compared to the latest iPad, that’s about $100 less, but the iPad 2 is still available for $399. This new Google tablet will be available in its online store on November 13.

Nexus 4 smartphones have screens of about 4.7 inches. This makes them larger than the iPhone 5 and smaller than the Galaxy S III. The 16GB Nexus 4 model is available for $199. Also attached is a two-year contract to purchase phone service and Internet access from T-Mobile. For a no-contract phone, you need to pay $299. This phone has 8GB of storage. The cost goes up to $349 if the model has 16 GB of storage. Isn’t this phone cool enough to make you sell your iPad? It seems that in the smartphone market, the iPhone 5 will have a great competitor to face.

In another field, Microsoft released its own tablet called the Surface. This tablet runs on the latest version of the Windows operating system. Windows 8 has been developed to appeal to users who want their personal computer to be more compatible with their mobile devices.

Microsoft also had a media event in San Francisco last Monday, launching Windows 8 for smartphones. Google had hoped to take the limelight from Microsoft by launching its latest smartphones in New York, but the event was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy.

Now that Google released its new phones a week after Microsoft and Apple released theirs, it looks like a big battle is brewing. Who will be the winner.
