Google’s Nexus 10 tablet has been announced last week and it should be released on November 13th. Though a weird thing happened today, as the Nexus 10 has been spotted in Walmart, a few days before the release date.
We even have a picture of it, along with the price tag of $499 in the store, thanks to PocketNow. Though it’s most likely an error and it shouldn’t be available for sale just yet.
The Google Nexus 10 is due to be released on November 13th and it will compete with Apple new iPad 4 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9, though the latest hasn’t been released yet. Google has been very successful with their Nexus 7, which sold in more than 1 million units each month and we expect the Nexus 10 to sell even better.
Featuring the all-new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the Nexus 10 also sports a dual-core 1.7Ghz Exynos 5250 processor, Mali-T604 GPU, 2GB of RAM, an 1080p 5MP back camera and a 720p 1.9MP frontal one. The Super Plus TFT 10.1-inch display features a 2560×1600 pixels resolution with 299 PPI and it’s covered by Corning Gorilla Glass.
It comes with either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, GPS, GLONASS, and a 9,000 mAh battery. Google’s Nexus 10 measures 263.8 x 177.8 x 8.9 mm (10.39 x 7.00 x 0.35 in) and it weights 603 g (1.33 lb).
It’s currently one of the most powerful tablets on the market, as Google tries to compete with the world’s bestseller with a similar price.
We’ll have to wait and see what percent of the market can Google grab with their new release, considering that Apple has been dominating the 8-10″ market for more than 3 years now. Hopefully Google can get developers to create more tablet-friendly apps, as there aren’t very much out there at the moment. Android’s fragmentation becomes an issue again, as the operating system is used on devices with literally hundreds of different screens and displays, so developers have a hard time making their apps compatible with all of them. Though Google’s tablets will definitely be popular enough for developers to focus on them. And that’s why we recommend you to pick a Nexus tablet instead of another Android product.
