Thanks both. That is the one Nexus device I would like to purchase unless the Nexus 10 was HSPA+ too. :)

OK, I'm slightly new to the smartphone scene, so pardon the newbie question. I understand The Nexus 4 does not support LTE, but it does support HSPA+. Does that mean it will be able to operate on the fastest data speeds offered by Wind?

Thanks.

What are the chances that a 32GB Nexus 4 would be released later down the road?

After seeing what happened with the Nexus 7 tablet, I'm concerned that Google/LG will introduce a 32GB later.

Yes - it means the Nexus 4 will operate on the fastest data speeds offered by Wind.

Edit - Clarification
What I meant to say was, the Nexus 4 will operate on the fastest data speeds offered by Wind, specific to the Nexus 4's fastest speed (which is HSPA+).

The Nexus 4 will operate on HSPA+ speeds, which is not as fast as LTE.
AFAIK, Wind Mobile does not have LTE coverage; HSPA+ is their current offering.

They will probably make an LTE variant for Sprint/Verizon. As for memory expansion, its always been like that with the Nexus One up until the Galaxy Nexus.
The nexus one had a micro SD slot

Did the 16GB Nexus 7 just drop in price? I thought it used to be $259?
Yes, the 16gb N7 dropped to the 8gb N7(discontinued) price point.

Just realized my Galaxy Nexus is worth much less than $300 now but then again, I don't game a lot and use the camera much.

Nexus 7 HSPA+ is the one that's piquing my interest since it will be a good substitute for the Galaxy Note I/II especially when I don't use cellphone air time.

Who's making the Nexus 10?

Is the Nexus 7 HSPA+ still made by Asus? I hope they have fixed that screen lift issue.
Nexus4: LG
Nexus7: ASUS
Nexus10: Samsung




Nexus3: Samsung?

I wish the Nexus 10 had HSPA+ too.

So HSPA + Nexus 7 can make use of all VOIP apps like Dell Voice, Viber, Line, Vonage Mobile? I better buy a good bluetooth headset or people will be appalled with my slapping of a tablet against my face during calls!!! :)

Thanks OP for starting this thread :)

Price point is great for the market and I think I'll be buying a pair for my lady and I when it's ready to be purchased on Play store.
I was a bit worried that this was not going to be made available on the Play store, but it's good to see that Google/LG are hitting the Canadian market in this manner.
You're welcome.

Most likely.

I created an official Nexus 10 thread for you folks:

what is pentaband?
Does wind have it? Im with rogers and were probably going to go with rogers or telus for the LTE network, but without the LTE why not try out Wind mobile (they dont have LTE).

Pentaband Vs LTE does it make a big difference? How does the Nexus stack Vs the S3??
Thanks
