The Nexus 7's bigger brother
Topping off Google’s Holiday 2012 Nexus lineup is the Nexus 10, the younger (but much larger) brother to the much moved Nexus 7 – a 10″ tablet produced by Samsung running the newest version of Android, Android 4.2. This bad boy’s got a 10″ 2560 x 1600 display – what Apple would classify as “Retina” running at 300 ppi, pretty much on par with Apple’s iPad 3/4. It comes standard with 16GB of storage (with a 32GB option available) and without any data capabilities,
Packed inside is a ARM Cortex-A15 SoC with 2GB of RAM, complete with a quad-core GPU – we know based off of the iPad (3) that you need quite the beefy GPU to power these many pixels on a tablet, so that’s no surprise. It comes with the standard sort of 5MP camera that’s common on tablets, but again we don’t expect many people to be doing a lot of shooting on such a large device. It’s also got a 1.9MP front facing camera that should be pretty good for Skype and the such. Powering it all is a 9,000mAh capacity battery which Google says is good for 9-hours of use. It of course runs Google’s just announced version of Android, Android 4.2.
The Nexus 10 goes on sale for $399 for the 16GB option or $499 for the 32GB, undercutting the Retina iPad (4) by $100. It’ll be available exclusively on Google’s Play Store starting November 13th.
