While we started off the month with rumors of a new ten-inch Nexus tablet from Samsung, all we had at first were a few claims about the device. The first actual evidence of its existence showed up shortly thereafter, when we saw an image on Picasa with EXIF data indicating it had been taken on a Nexus 10. Since then, this tablet has managed to keep seeming more and more real, and just yesterday we were able to take a look at a very convincing leak of the device’s quick start guide. As we close-in on Google’s October 29 event, when it’s seeming very likely that Google could reveal the Nexus 10, some additional evidence arrives, and this time from a quite trustworthy source.
Vic Gundotra, Google’s Senior Vice President of Engineering, just posted some lovely pictures of a tropical landscape on his Google+ page. While innocent enough on their surface, dig a little deeper and you can see that both images again report being taken by the Nexus 10′s camera.
These don’t end up telling us anything new about the tablet, but seeing this kind of info come from a Google exec just serves to solidify our expectations that the Nexus 10 launch is indeed right around the corner.
