Nexus 10 - Official

The Nexus 10 has come from a partnership with Samsung and is a 10in version of the Nexus 7. The screen uses a 2560 x 1600 (300ppi) resolution making it "the highest resolution tablet on the planet", according to Google.

It will be available on 13 November in 16GB or 32GB models priced at 319 and 389 respectively.

I really love Googles "we're not in it to make massive profit, we just want to beat the competition" attitude. It's a win win situation for the customers, and it shows others companies are just greedy.

Yeah, the official pics look way better than the leaked photos from the other day.

I still personally have no interest in the Nexus 10, but for those looking for pure Google in a 10" form, the Nexus 10 at $399 is insanely attractive.

And the resolution puts iPad's Retina to shame.

Love the screen, love the price, don't like the aesthetics of the device.

I can see it doing well though especially at the price.

Anyone know the pricing in euros ? We only get

I did, do you notice how shiny the back of the nexus 4 is ? Seems super glossy in the video, and is the nexus logo bigger on the Nexus 4 than the galaxy nexus ? (maybe its an optical illusion, it looks massive in the video but doesn't on the photos)

And I wonder why the bump up from 16GB to 32GB is a $100 dollar difference, whereas the same bump up for the Nexus 7 is $50.

Yeah not a fan myself either. Aesthetically its ugly compared to the Nexus 4 & 7.

Its like a good looking person (screen resolution) dressed in a filthy tramps piss stained rags (the plastic housing).

I saw in on a specs sheet somehere after a google search, can't find an official source, but I assume it'll defiantly be Amoled as it's a Samsung product.

I'd much prefer a IPS display as well, it's alot sharper than Amoled.

It's a full RGB IPS display. It uses Samsungs PLS technology to be exact.

This. Great news.

This is a very compelling tablet, besides its ugliness.

I wonder if Samsung lowered their component prices so the N10 would look more alluring vs the iPad?

Those N10 prices are insane.
