Google isn’t going to let something like Hurricane Sandy slow them down. Despite the cancellation of today’s Android event, Google decided to go ahead with the unveiling of several new Nexus devices and Android 4.2, as planned. Google’s official blog post not only confirms the Nexus 4, but the new Samsung Nexus 10 as well.
Today’s Samsung Nexus 10 announcement confirms the device will have an impressive 10-inch 2560 x 1600 display. For those keeping score, yes this does beat out Apple’s retina display found in the latest iPad. While we don’t know everything about the hardware yet, we do know that the newly announced tablet will feature a Samsung Exynos 5 SoC and a Mali 604 GPU.
Other confirmed information includes the ability to play up to 9 hours of video playback on a single charge. The curved metallic tablet is also only 8.9mm thick and weighs just 603 grams. Not surprisingly, it also will run on Android 4.2, like the recently announced Nexus 4.
As for the pricing, the Nexus 10 will cost $399 for a 16GB model or $499 for the 32GB version in the United States. Official pricing for other countries has yet to be announced. Anyone excited about Samsung’s new 10-inch Nexus tablet?
