Asus logo aa 3 1600

Yesterday we reported on a leaked PC World inventory listing for the Google Asus Nexus 10, an unofficially announced device that is believed to be the successor to the Samsung-made Nexus 10.

Thanks to the leaked info, we learned that the tablet would retail for £349.99, which is about £30 more than the 16GB Samsung Nexus 10. Jumping forward to today, Android Central brings us a second inventory screenshot pointing again towards the Asus Nexus 10, this time from the UK retailer Currys.

Like yesterday’s sighting, the tablet is listed with a price tag of £349.99. Unlike the PC World inventory screen, this listing specifically states the storage size for this model as 16GB.

Beyond that, we really learn nothing new here.


While neither retail listing gives us too many details, two sightings so close to one another certainly help legitimize the idea of an Asus Nexus 10 tablet.

IF the Asus Nexus 10 is real, what can we expect from it? While we don’t know for sure, we’d imagine the tablet would come with a Snapdragon 800 CPU, at least 2GB RAM and a high resolution display (maybe 2560 x 1600?). It also seems likely that the new Nexus 10 would feature Android 4.4 KitKat.

As for when Google plans to release it, it’s possible that the tablet could be unveiled alongside the Nexus 5 in mid-October – though that’s just speculation on our part. Anyone still hoping for a Samsung Nexus 10 refresh, or does the idea of an Asus Nexus 10 sound good to you?

    I want ASUS Nexus everything. Google should Nexufy the whole Padfone concept as well – if those things were more affordable I’d be all over them.

    • David Rutla

      That’s actually not a bad idea. It would also help ASUS market itself

    • Sohip

      Doesn’t Google lose money on each Nexus they sell, or they are selling it at cost price???

      HTC sells the One for full price and they are losing a lot of money, imagine HTC selling it for it’s cost price!!!

      • David Tang

        I think that’s more to do with the fact they are not selling enough hence the lack of profit.

  • Dusan

    Asus makes high quality products. I’m not sure about software though, since I own a Windows 8 Asus tablet.
    It’s awesome. It’s so sturdy I could easily kill someone with it – without breaking the tablet.

    • bottephoque

      Asus UX31a ultrabook here, I can probably crack a skull with that laptop.

    • Franz

      Except the flash memory of the Nexus 7 (2012)… But they do make good hardware.

    • Tuấn Ankh

      I own the Asus Transformer Pad 300 and Asus totally screwed with its software updates. Good that updates of the Nexus line are straight from Google.

  • ero

    Currys-PCWorld this same crap company

  • Mark Washington

    I don’t care. I just want good specs and lte support from day 1 release!

  • Shermon MK-1

    I don’t care. Samsung Nexus 10, LG nexus 10, asus nexus 10, motorola nexus 10, hp nexus 10, I don’t give rip…as long as google is head of design team there is nothing to fear.

    I hope Google *NEVER* partners with Samsung again. What Samsung really wants is to have Tizen become an Android alternative. Privately, they see Google as a long-term threat. Do you ever wonder why Samsung doesn’t fully embrace Android on their TVs? Or why Tizen is supposedly Android-compatible? Hmmm…

    Samsung’s products are good..but the company sucks.

    • Richard Sequeira

      Why is it the their flagship phones run Android and not Bada? Samsung doesn’t see Google as a threat. Their devices account for 50% of the Android market.

      • cycad007

        You obviously are read up since you knew Bada became Tizen. Then you obviously should know that Samsung had *NOTHING* to compete against the iPhone when it was first released. Internally, they were nervous and were scrambling to get something to market to compete against the iPhone. Their *ONLY* alternative was Android. You ask why they use Android instead of Bada/Tizen? It’s so easy and obvious….Samsung didn’t have any other choice!!

        Samsung *DOES* see Google as a threat. They realize that the success of their products are highly dependent on Google services. Bada/Tizen is their attempt to slowly seperate themselves from Google & Android.

    I’m very disappointed that it will be made by Asus. Look how many factory failures have both N7. N10 was Samsung much more reliable device than N7 from Asus.

  • TheFluffyOne

    Currys and PC World are part of the same retail group, so the fact that they both have the device on their systems should not be considered as two independent sightings…

  • Although the new generation do not know how, but I’m also very happy and looking forward to it

  • Mikel Pr

    I bet it’s a Tegra 4.

  • James Earley

    PC World and Curry’s are the same company. Hardly surprising.

  • Tarek Assaf

    Pretty much prefer any other manufacturer than Samsung…

  • Joshua Bailey

    How about an Asus Nexus 10 transformer and also a stand alone Samsung Nexus 10 refresh. With rumors of Google meeting chrome OS and Android in the future, having a Nexus that has a true keyboard with some extra ports, battery and extra storage on board would be phenomenal.

    Anyone else like that idea? Probably would be too confusing for the consumer to have two 10 inch Nexus choices where one had a keyboard attachment and the other didn’t.

    All I know is that I love my wife’s 2013 Nexus 7 build quality and speed, and my Nexus 10 rocks. An Asus Nexus 10 would be simply awesome… especially with a transformer keyboard peripheral.

  • Gary Trotter

    So this will be a bit of an odd product line for Asus ? They released the ME301 which was pulled quickly by PC World Currys, then the talk of the ASUS FHD 10 (ME302) which although advertised has yet to materialise in PC world/currys. If this is genuine you have to wonder who is doing the purchasing for the chain and indeed what ASUS’s strategy is – are they following Samsungs blitz the market approach ?

    I guess no Nexus 11.
