Pre-orders are now open for Google’s latest Nexus devices including the company’s 2014 Nexus phone, tablet, and TV box.
These three items are expected to ship in early November, and they’ll be among the first devices to come with Android 5.0 Lollipop software.
Google is also continuing to offer the Nexus 5 and plans to offer over-the-air software updates for that phone as well as the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 and 10 tablets.
The Nexus 9 tablet features a 2048 x 1536 pixel IPS LCD display, 2GB of RAM, an an NVIDIA Tegra K1 64-bit dual-core processor with 192 core graphics.
It has 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, a 6700mAh battery for up to 9.5 hours of run time, stereo front-facing cameras, and 16GB to 32GB of storage.
Google’s new 6 inch phone is the biggest Nexus phone to date, and the most expensive (although folks tend to forget that Nexus devices haven’t always been cheap: the original HTC Nexus One sold for over $500).
It has a 5.96 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3220mAh battery, Qi wireless charging supports, 802.ac 2×2 MIMO WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, and support for GSM/WCDMA/4G LTE networks.
The cheapest new member of the Nexus family is the first TV box to wear the Nexus name. The Google Nexus Player has an Intel Atom Bay quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and the same WiFi and Bluetooth as the other new devices. It has a micro USB 2.0 port and HDMI output, and it runs Android TV software.
The box comes with a remote control that you can use for voice commands and searches and there’s an optional Bluetooth game controller which will be sold separately for $40.
