We don’t know if it’s because it didn’t get the gala presentation we were all expecting to (damn you, Sandy!), or because it’s double the price of the Nexus 7, but the Samsung-Google Nexus 10 doesn’t seem to be in the spotlight much.
I mean, we heard about its specs and we saw it starring in some official pics, but that’s pretty much it. No hype, no marketing and very few things about availability. Until now, at least, because we finally have something that could bring a sense of excitement around the “iPad killer”.
Upon announcing the 10-incher on its official website, Samsung Korea might have spilled the beans – intentionally or not – on one particular feature of the tab we didn’t know about. In a promotional spec image, the Nexus 10 was listed with 16, 32 and 64 GB of on-board storage, despite Google only announcing the former two versions on Monday.
Sammy’s Korean branch quickly backed out and corrected the “mistake”, now listing the Nexus 10 with just 16 and 32 GB of internal memory. Needless to say that we aren’t very convinced this was an error in the first place and we think this was either a well-thought tactic of raising some buzz or a mistake in the sense that the detail wasn’t supposed to be revealed at this point.
Either way, we really hope the 64 GB Nexus 10 will prove real, especially that the tablet, just as any other Nexus device, lacks a microSD slot. Of course, if there is such a model, it will most likely cost $599, but that might be a small price to pay for Nexus 10’s display, performance, software and storage space. Do you guys agree? Would you welcome a 64 GB version of the tab?
