Nexus 5 Release Date May 2013

Even though the Nexus 4 is still out of stock in most countries and on most carriers and the Nexus 7 is still getting a lot of buyers, Google may be readying up a whole new line of Nexus devices, leaving out the poor player, the Nexus 10.

We believe with the poor sales on the Nexus 10 compared to the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7, Google may abandon the ten-inch tablet area altogether. Apple may not see this as the best thing yet, but iPad Mini sales show that people want a smaller tablet for reading and gaming.

With Google and LG’s poor stock incidents that have left many buyers empty handed, it is surprising that Google are going to work with them again with the Nexus 5. Even more surprising considering both of them have been throwing the blame at each other.

Nexus 5 Specs

The Nexus 5 will feature a 5-inch full-HD display, a quad-core Tegra 4 processor, 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and Android “Key Lime Pie,” the next version of Android that we suspect to be released around that time.

All these features point towards a high end phone, although again we are missing 4G compatibility. Pricing for the Nexus 5 is as expected, given the Nexus 4 came at such a bargain. The Nexus 5 will start at $299 for the 8GB version.

Nexus 7.7 Specs

The Nexus 7.7 will be slightly larger than the previous Nexus tablet, which we dislike because to us the Nexus 7 is a great size and maybe a little too big already. The tablet will have aTegra 4 processor, 7.7-inch 1,920 x 1,200-pixel display, 8GB of storage and both front and rear high-definition cameras.

Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.7 Release Date

Both are coming sometime in May 2013,if the report is correct. Again, between the X Phone, LG and Google’s supply problems, Asus’ new line of Android tablets and an early launch for Key Lime Pie, we cannot see this actually happening.

    you are an idiot. the nexus 10 went out of stock on the first day it was released and has continued to go out of stock on the day it has become available for purchase again on the google play store. how does that result in your conclusion that it has had “poor sales”?

    The Novo Hero II also launched earlier this month – a full size, 10 inch Android tablet that packs in most of the same features, including a quad core processor and 1280×800 IPS screen – Plus 32GB memory and a strong 8,000 mAh battery — all for less than $250 at TabletSprint.

    In February, the Novo 9 Spark is also expected to be released, which will feature a Quad Core processor along with a 9.7 inch 2048×1536 Retina screen – the same technology as the iPad display; along with a powerful 10,000 mAh battery and a 5 Megapixel Rear Camera with AF and Flash for about $270.

    It should be interesting to see how the new Novo Quad Core Series fares in 2013 as this company gains more presence in the U.S.

    You must remember that first day could only have 20,000 – 50,000 in stock. We doubt the Nexus 10 has succeeded over 200,000 sales. Comparing that to the Nexus 7, at 4 million – and the Nexus 4, at 500,000, we would say it is a poor product in terms of sales.
