Going back as early as October, the 16GB Nexus 10 has been unavailable directly from Google Play in the U.S. market, where instead we have simply been greeted by an “out of inventory” notice. Now the 32GB model’s Play stock has apparently run dry as well.

At least at the time of this writing, the Nexus 10 is still listed from the device’s page, there’s just no way to buy it. Although we wouldn’t completely count out the possibility that more inventory could be coming, judging by the fact that we haven’t seen a refill on the 16GB Nexus 10 since it ran out months ago, it doesn’t seem likely.

Does this mean a Nexus 10 refresh is just around the corner? That’s a good question. The Nexus 10 was released back in 2012, and is certainly due for an upgrade. Previously we had heard various rumors about Asus introducing the next model around the same as the Nexus 5, but obviously that never happened. For now it remains unclear who will build the next-gen Nexus 10, when it will debut or even IF it’s coming at all.

What do you think, would you like to see a new Nexus 10 model, or do you feel that the popularity of 10-inch tablets have waned enough to make such a larger model unnecessary? We will be sure to get an eye out on the listing and will update this post if/when the situation changes.

  • Serge Cebrian

    i sold mine hoping to grab the newest one when the N5 came out….
    but never happened .. now im happy with the nexus 7..
    i hope the nexus 10 is made by asus, but they should include vibration feedback

    i loved how the keys felt on the galaxy nexus but not so much on the nexus 10
    buy i miss it on the nexus 7

  • Dave

    I still love my N10 just as much, if not more, than when I got it back in 2012. Fills all my needs and gets quick updates since it’s a Nexus.

    Knowing my luck the second gen will come soon. I just bought that over priced flip covor from google.

  • AA :P

    maybe they ran out of packaging boxes… :D

  • AndroidBoss

    That’s a good sign. This means that the next one is coming out soon hopefully. Same thing happened with the Nexus 4.

      Also that either they were destroyed of given away. No one in their right mind should have bought it for at least the last 2 months.

      yes, but usually when a new nexus is coming out you hear many rumors news mounths before.. now?

  • Ryan Rupp

    I honestly think 10″ or larger will become popular again. People will get bored with the cutesy 7″ and itll come back around to the larger formats.

    I personally want a 10″ or larger device to be my first tablet (my nook color doesnt cut it as one, not that I expect it to) as I watch a LOT of netflix so the larger screen size works better for me.

    • John-Phillip Saayman

      Hopefully only next year so that the current Nexus 10 stays, well, current.

    • AA :P

      just one point – people use 7/8 inch for sheer portability. given a chance we’d all like 10 inch, bigger the better, but portability is a real issue

      • Ryan Rupp

        portability is an issue for some sure, but I am in love with the 10″ size. I use an ipad currently in my wifes medical practice at marketing events and the larger size is just much much easier to display a lot of information to people. That and as I said netflix on a 7″ screen isnt bad, but 10″+ is better.

        Any size tablet is still infinitely more portable than my 6.5lb 16″ studio xps laptop :)

        • AA :P

          yeah – watching a movie – yeah a 10 inch tab is pretty handy for sure. a lot of people around me are buying 2 tabs – one for the regular use 7inch one and the 10inch for travel, because it seems to be replacing the laptop! of course there’s no content creation going on. a good ol laptop is still noowhere close to being replaced.

    They can rather extend the time frame for updating it longer than 18 months so that it gets the next big android as well. Then they can release a new Nexus 10 a bit later when there is a way to keep the tablet cheap but give it a spec bump. Because let’s face it.. The Nexus 10 is still very high end. So they can wait till next year and give it 3 gig ram and so on.
    In the meantime they can just keep the firmware up to date on the current nexus 10 until next year.

    Here’s hoping..

    The website Android Headlines has released a leaked pic of the next N10. Evleaks has it and it looks legit. Made by Samsung with front facing speakers, 3GB of ram and 2560×1600 display with an Exynos processor! Also being released with Android 4.5.
    I just got the 10.1 Note 2014 edition so I won’t be getting this one but it would probably have been my first choice had it been available at the time.

      Already dissected to be a fake :

    Just to let you know in Canada the 32 GB version is still available.

  • stucrmnx120fshwf

    At the PPI of Nexus 5, we could have UD 4k at 10″, at the PPI of Samsung GS 5, we could have UD at 7″. They might be waiting for 14 nm/64 bit, before going UD on Nexus, we saw UD Kit Kat screens at CES 2014. But the N10 refresh is supposed to be the same resolution, as the original, in most rumors.

    Well in the Play Store I can access (from Canada) the 32GB model leaves warehouse in 1-2 business days. Not out of stock yet (as of 7:21pm January 16, 2014.
