Google’s exciting Nexus 10 tablet complete with a brand new 1.7 GHz Samsung 5250 dual-core processor, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, multi-user accounts, and of course an amazing 2560 x 1600 HD display was unleashed into the wild on November 13th, last Tuesday. While it didn’t sell out in 24 minutes like the Nexus 4 did, it didn’t take long for the stock to be depleted.

Basically everything Google announced back on October 29th has essentially sold out in the Google Play Store. Either they weren’t expecting this many buyers, or they’re trying to keep the speed at a medium to slow roll to not overload their relatively new online hardware store. That hardware being Nexus devices full of awesomeness.

In case you’re still on the fence about the Samsung-made Google Nexus 10 tablet, you’ll want to take a quick peek at our Nexus 10 Review. Don’t enjoy all of those pictures for too long because before you know it the tablet will be sold out again. Currently only the 16GB model for $399 is still available, with the 32GB being sold out. Stay tuned as I’m sure it will be appearing back in stock

The guts

This tablet has a lot power: a dual-core 1.7GHz Samsung Exynos processor. The whole tablet is made by Samsung. The chip includes a quad-core GPU inside, which will be make that super-dense display fly.

It has 2GB of RAM, which is is more than you’ll find in most comparable tablets. There are 16 and 32GB models.

The display

The screen is a 10-inch 2560×1600 better-than-retina display. That’s extremely sharp for a tablet of this size, over 4 million pixels. It surpasses the iPad, which only has 264 pixels per inch. The Nexus 10 is 300 pixels per inch. It’s also better than its closest competitor, the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD.


The device comes with microUSB and microHDMI ports, plus Wi-Fi. No news on 3G or LTE support yet.


Like the iPad 4, this one has two cameras too: a 5-megapixel sensor on the back, so people can look like a douchebag taking photos like their iPad counterparts.

On the front it gets better than Apple’s tablet: 1.9 megapixels.


The Nexus 10 has two front-facing stereo speakers, which in theory will give you a much better listening experience than the iPad.

Battery life

Google claims that the battery gives you nine hours of video playback. That’s not as good as Apple’s advertised battery life: up to 10 hours. But battery life is notoriously hard to pin down based on what companies say; we’ll have to wait until we try it out ourselves.

Ready for multiple users

Unlike the iPad—and like Microsoft Surface—the Nexus 10 can be shared among different family members. Thanks to Android 4.2, people can easily set up different user accounts, and switch between them instantly from the lock screen.

AirPlay-like video transmission technology

The Nexus 10 also supports Miracast, which allows you to transmit movies, television shows, and anything else on your screen to any television with a wireless adapter.


Physical specs

It’s lighter than the iPad, at only 1.33 pounds (604 grams) compared to the iPad 1.44 pounds (652 grams)

Price and availability

The price is perhaps the most surprising aspect: $400 for the 16GB, $500 for the 32GB model. That’s $100 cheaper than the iPad. Amazing when you consider how much better the specs are, and continuing the trend—which had all but disappeared these last few years—of Apple being outgunned on the price tag.
