    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
    in Ireland so I can't check.

    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)

    Boo, I guess.

    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 dont see that in the official specs, do you have a source?

    I rather it be IPS anyhow.

    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.

    Source? I just really hope I'm wrong, I really want it to be IPS.

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

    Those N10 prices are insane.
