After many rumors, Google and Samsung have finally debuted the Nexus 10 tablet, one of the nicest looking 10-inch Android tablets ever and yet another potential competitor for the iPad.
The Nexus 10 has some mighty fine specs: The screen resolution of 2,560-by-1,600 (300ppi) has 4 million pixels packed into it. It also includes a dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor, 2GB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera on back, 1.9-megapixel camera on front, and a 9,000mAh battery that Google says runs for nine hours.
On the software side, the device is running a stock version of Android 4.2. You can read more about the changes in 4.2 from Google.
The 16GB Nexus 10 unit costs $400, while the 32GB model retails for $500. These price points make the models competitive with the iPad 2 ($400) and fourth-gen full-size iPad ($500).
The Nexus 10 will be available on Nov. 13 in the Google Play Store in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada, and Japan.
Google unveiled the Nexus 10 alongside the powerful Nexus 4 smartphone from LG and a slightly revamped Nexus 7 tablet. Check out the video below for more on the three devices.
