While a lot of the excitement surrounding Google’s October 29 event has focused on the Nexus 4, we’ve also heard about the potential for Google to launch a new tablet, the Nexus 10. Samsung was rumored to be Google’s manufacturing partner for the tablet, which would supposedly feature an impressive 2560 x 1600 resolution. Today, our chances for actually seeing the Nexus 10 launch next week seem better than ever, upon the leak of the Nexus 10’s quick start guide.
Unfortunately, we only get a quick peek inside, but this manual certainly looks legit. At least what we can see here is quite interesting, showing a tablet design that’s a serious departure from the Nexus 7. Indeed, the Nexus 10 has some bulging edges in comparison to the Nexus 7’s much straighter construction.
We can also see the return of the rear camera, after going missing from the Nexus 7, and the same image of the tablet’s back panel seems to confirm that Samsung is indeed the manufacturer.
There’s definitely the potential here to give the new iPad a run for its money, though that could depend a lot on what Google’s able to sell the Nexus 10 for. If we’re talking $400, this could be one tablet that’s hard to ignore.
