Samsung Nexus 10

With the recently announced Samsung Nexus 10 we get a powerful Android 10-inch tablet that even manages to beat out Apple’s retina display. The only question left is whether or not the tablet’s excellent resolution is good enough to compete with in-print magazine pages.

Google+ user “Romain Guy” has now posted some pictures to his plus page that shows off a couple shots of the Nexus 10 running a few pages of a virtual magazine. The self-shot images are very high in quality and compare the tablet side-by-side with actual print versions of the same publications. While a few readers with extremely keen eyes might still prefer the print version, the display on the Nexus 10 is nothing short of amazing.

With its 2560 x 1600 display and impressive Exynos 5250 CPU, the Nexus 10 is clearly raising the bar when it comes to 10-inch tablets. For those who need the reminder, other specs include a Mali T604 GPU, stereo speakers, 2GB of RAM, NFC, 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, a 5MP back cam, a 1.9MP front cam and Android 4.2.

The Nexus 10 will be available starting November 13th via Google Play in the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany, Canada and Japan. Pricing starts at $399 for the 16GB version. What do you think of the new Nexus tablet, are you planning on picking up a Samsung Galaxy Nexus 10?

  • It’s Android 4.2…must be a typo ;)

      I was thinking the same “whaaat when did 4.3 come when we haven’t seen 4.2 yet” :D

    Doesn’t it come with Android 4.2 not 4.3 as mentioned in this blog?

      Sorry… keyboard malfunction. Fixed.

  • I was ready (and hoping) to buy a Nexus 4 32GB, but seeing as their is none available, a 32GB version of this tablet would be a nice holdover. Issue is I still have my Transformer Prime and it’s still running well. However, I’ve noticed I’ve run out of room for Apps on both my Galaxy Nexus(16GB) and Transformer Prime(32GB), so considering that these new nexus devices, despite offering monstrous increases in performance, considering my current equipment runs these games well, but I’d pay a lot more for extra performance in conjunction with space increases. It’s not a good idea to have such low storage options. Why not a limited run of Nexus 4’s 32GB for $450 and a series of Nexus 10’s 64GB for $650. I know that beyond the shadow of a doubt that if those two devices at those storage sizes and prices were available on November 13th I’d order one of each.

  • This tablet is going to be awesome.

    I’m hoping there’s a dock like that Note dock posted earlier, with HDMI (or even better DisplayPort!), USB, audio, and power.
