Google unveiled its new lineup of Nexus devices Monday, as well as the first video spot promoting them. The lineup includes a Nexus 4 smartphone, a 7-inch Nexus 7 tablet and a 10-inch Nexus 10 tablet.

The one-minute ad, developed in collaboration with Boston-based ad agency Mullen, touts the devices' educational -- or rather explorative -- capabilities. Various individuals are shown using the new Nexus devices to run voice and text-based searches, to navigate a street using augmented reality and to investigate a famous landmark (the Coliseum) via satellite imagery.

The devices were scheduled to be unveiled at a press event in New York City Monday, which was cancelled on account of an impending storm. Google decided to go ahead with the announcement online.

All three devices run Android 4.2, which Google describes as “a new flavor of Jelly Bean.” The Nexus 4 smartphone is priced at $299 for the 8GB version and $349 for the 16GB version (unlocked). The 7-inch Nexus 7 is priced at $199 for 16GB of storage, and $249 for 32GB; an HSPA+ version with 32GB of data is also available for $299. The 10-inch Nexus 10 tablet is available in a 16GB version for $399 and a 32GB for $499.

Both tablets will be available beginning Nov. 13 in the U.S., UK, Australia, France, Canada, Spain, Germany and Japan.
