Google Announces Nexus 10 With Stunning 2560x1600 Res

Hurricane Sandy might have meant a canceled press launch for Google but, instead of rescheduling, the company decided to go ahead and launch its new Nexus line anyway. Right before Microsoft kicked off its Windows Phone 8 announcement in San Francisco, Google unveiled the new Nexus 4 smartphone as well as an updated Nexus 7 slate and a brand new 10-inch tablet dubbed the Nexus 10.

 

The new Nexus 7 comes in 16GB and 32GB variations. It seems the 8GB version previously being sold at $199 has been nixed in favor of these new capacities. Google has also added HSPA+ mobile data to the device. Pricing for the 16GB will start at the same $199 price point we saw with the original 8GB model, while the 32GB model will cost $50 more at $249. It will be available in the U.S., UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan via Google Play and through brick and mortar retails including Gamestop, Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and Walmart.

 

Other than a bump in capacity, HSPA+ and an upgrade to Android 4.2, the Nexus 7 hasn't changed much. However, Google also introduced us to a brand new tablet, the Nexus 10. Based on a 1.7 GHz Samsung Exynos 5250 CPU, the tablet packs a 10-inch with a mind-blowing 2560x1600 (300ppi) resolution. Other than that, there's the usual NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth (4.0), as well as 2GB of RAM, Android 4.2, a 5-megapixel on the back and a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front. Google says the 16GB will be priced at $399. while doubling the capacity to 32GB will set you back $499. This tablet will also be available November 13 via the Google Play Store. Google has already confirmed availability for the U.S., UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan.

    What, more gadget news? I think you guys are doing it wrong. You should be reporting on Apple's earnings, how fast their products sell out and their long dead CEO's Yacht sighting first.... oh wait.

    No 3G/4G/LTE versions of the Nexus 10???
    Seems like a missed opportunity for some extra sales.

    The nexus 10 looks really nice. Its got a better screen and CPU than the new "new iPad", and twice the ram. And icing on the cake, despite being a superior product to the ipad, its cheaper! This looks like the "iPad killer" some of us have been waiting for, assuming it comes with data connection plan.

    I wish tablet makers would learn to give us an 8 gig tablet with an sd card slot. It would be a huge success, and as far as I know, only the Asus does this in a quality tablet.

    It's great that technology is moving on but what is the purpose of such a high resolution screen on a tablet now?

    Not even sure why I get downvoted for Tom's reporting on worthless Apple news about Yacht's and Tim Cooks lost pocket watch over "Tech news" but whatever. TH is the Authority on Tech so they must know right?

    Quick APPLE Execs are leaving the company, halt all relevant gadget and tech news and post that with haste Tom's!
