Nexus 10 Now Listed as “Coming Soon” in Play Store, New Nexus 10 2 Release Date Nears?

Nexus 10 coming soon

So far we’ve heard dozens of rumors about the New Nexus 10 2 release date, but the folks at Google seem to have dropped the idea of releasing a successor for their stock Android-powered 10.1-inch tablet.

In November 2013 the Nexus 10 tablet sold out on Google Play and since then it was listed as “out of inventory” or “check back later.” Usually the Google products are listed in the aforementioned forms when they sell out or on the verge of receiving a successor. Today, the folks at Google changed the status of the Nexus 10 tablet to “Coming soon.” The Nexus 10 Google Play Store page also shows the pricing of the tablet $399 for the 16 GB model and $499 for the 32 GB model even though they were long gone.

Anyway, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Google are preparing to launch the new Nexus 10 2, but it’s at least odd to see a tablet listed as “coming soon” given that it was out of stock for almost half a year.

Do you think that the Nexus 10 2 release date is nearing or do the folks at Google plan to re-stock the original model? Would make sense for them to start selling the old model again?

We’ve already heard quite a few rumors about the new Nexus 10 2, some of them indicating that the 10.1-inch tablet might be officially unveiled synchronized with the next incremental Android update. The rumor mill speculated that the new tablet might be manufactured by Samsung, LG, or ASUS, but there’s no significant proof to sustain the rumors, therefore they should be treated with a pinch of salt.

On the other hand, there were whispers saying that Google will no longer develop a Nexus 10 2 tablet, as they would team-up with OEMs and release Google Play Editions of the tablets that were already launched on the market.

So would you prefer a Google Play Edition Galaxy Tab or Transformer or a Nexus 10 2? Please let us know in comments.

    I wouldn’t mind if they just kept with Google Play Edition tablets, but they’d have to actually release them outside of the US

    Nexus 10 2 or Google Play Edition Xperia Z2 tablet…either would be ok with me

  • Jas Holley

    I’d like to see a Samsung Note 10.1 Google Play Edition. The Samsung Note series is one of the best multitasking devices out and if they could remove some of the Samsung bloat but keep the legendary S Pen features it would be a GOD among tablets.

    In my opinion, a nexus 10 2 would be the best option as a replacement since all the Play Edition’s software are made by the OEM… In facts, it would imply that they could implement whatever crap they want on top of the stock Android or drop the updates whenever they want (instead of when the chipset will not be updated anymore), which is obviously not the point of a developer tablet.

    The Samsung PRO series tablets would make great Google Play Editions.
