Google may have cancelled its media event in New York City today in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy’s arrival, but the Android superpower isn’t delaying the unveiling of its latest set of mobile devices.

Today, we’re excited to announce three great new Nexus devices … in small, medium and large. And they all run Android 4.2, a new flavor of Jelly Bean—which includes the latest version of Google Now and other great new features.

Announced through an uneventful press release instead of a flashy media spectacle, Google raised the curtain today on a new Nexus 4 smartphone as well as a 10-inch iPad challenger called the Nexus 10.

Google even showed off a refreshed Nexus 7 tablet with cellular data connectivity.

All told, here’s what the new product slate looks like:

  • Nexus 4: 8GB for $299; 16GB for $349; available unlocked and without a contract on 11/13 on the Google Play store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. The 16GB version will also be available through T-Mobile for $199, with a 2-year contract.
  • Nexus 7: 16GB for $199 and 32GB for $249; available in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan, and also through our retail partners Gamestop, Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and Walmart.
  • Nexus 7 with 32GB and mobile data: $299 and unlocked, on sale 11/13 in the Google Play store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada.
  • Nexus 10: 16GB for $399; 32GB for $499; available on 11/13 in the Google Play Store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan.
