Asus and Google will also offer a 3G HSPA+ version of the 32GB Nexus 7 for $299/£239.

The Wi-Fi only models will be available tomorrow; the 3G unit on 13 November. All of them will sell through Google Play.

Ditto the 16GB and 32GB Nexus 10, priced at $399/£319 and $499/£389 respectively. Both come with a 10.1in, 2560 x 1600 display plus front-facing stereo speakers, a dial-core ARM chip, 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, 2GB of Ram, 5Mp and 1.9Mp cameras, NFC and a 9000mAh battery.

Finally, there’s the Nexus 4 4.7in, 1280 x 768 smartphone based, as expected, on the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip and with a choice of 8GB or 16GB of Flash storage - priced at £239 and £279, respectively, Sim-free. It has wireless charging and NFC.

In a dig at Apple, Google said the 4 is the first phone able to take 360° panoramas - iOS 6 on the iPhone 4S and 5 can only handle 240° linear shots.

The Nexus 4 and 10 will run Android 4.2 - the 7 will continue to ship with 4.1. ®
