The Samsung-made Nexus 10 is the first tablet around running a processor based on Cortex A15 cores. It debuted alongside the Nexus 4 in the fall of 2012, where it brought Google's tablet lineup a full-sized, high-res alternative to the Nexus 7. The Nexus 10's ten-inch LCD display has a stunning 2560×1600 resolution, more than capable of handling any HD content. Unlike the Nexus 7 with its 3G option, the Nexus 10 remains WiFi-only for the moment.

    [vamp] [vamp] [vamp] [vamp] That's the text that leads us in to each episode of the Pocketnow Weekly: a column of virtual prompts on the rough rundown reminding us that, after our loosely scripted intro block, there's a gulf of pure off-topic nonsense between the opening music and the rundown's news section. It's a handful of minutes devoted to office banter, good-natured ribbing, and, in today's case, an EQ experiment by our own Taylor Martin that results in him literally reading the "vamp" cues out loud like the delightful troll he is. That's the kind of stuff you're missing if you skip ...

    Update: While we were giving this leak the benefit of the doubt at first, no sooner had we published this post when @evleaks decided to step back from even his "we just don't know" stance to a "this is probably a fake" one, citing the discovery that the same leak had been sent to other recipients with differing details. Dagnabit! - Android's been dominating the headlines for most of the day so far, and the platform's not taking any breaks now. A few hours back we were talking about the possibility of seeing a new Nexus 10 arrive, with Google appearing to have run down its stocks on the old ...

    Is a new Nexus 10 ever coming out? A couple weeks back we were talking about the (admittedly unlikely) possibility of Samsung and Google unveiling a new model at the CES, but that clearly hasn't happened (despite an otherwise awesome-sauce tablet showing from Samsung). Rumors about a new Nexus 10 go back months and months; all the way back in October we saw the 16GB Nexus 10 not just go “out of stock” but go “out of inventory” and wondered if that might foretell the coming availability of a new model. While nothing's happened since, the other shoe may have just dropped, as the 32GB ...

    We've been cautiously optimistic about Canonical's chances for really seeing Ubuntu Touch take off this year, especially with the promise of relationships with OEMs bringing us the first commercial hardware intentionally designed for use with Ubuntu. But thus far, if you've wanted to experiment with the platform, that's meant flashing a Ubuntu ROM to one of several Nexus devices. Unfortunately, your options going forward are going to be a lot more limited, as Canonical announces that support for the majority of Nexus models is being dropped. Last year we were showing you one of those early ...

    There’s no denying that the tablet industry has evolved at a tremendous pace in less than three years. For those of us non-believers of the original Microsoft Tablet PC, or even the first iPad and its potential, it was hard to even predict that the services and devices that we see ubiquitous today, would’ve been possible so quickly. That being said, there is no such thing as a perfect tablet, and not every device fits every user. Make sure you watch today’s Top 5 as we talk about the things we all wish to see happening in 2014. We discuss the things that are still not fixed, and the ...

    Technology trade shows are often a breeding ground for plague and disease, so here at Pocketnow we opted to inoculate ourselves early … by picking up some crazy wintertime head colds just days before flying to Vegas for the 2014 International CES. That's right: on the first podcast of the year, all three of your humble hosts are suffering from respiratory distress and an overabundance of mucus, all of it glazed over with enough combined medication to drop a Snapdragon dead in its tracks. Or something. On the brighter side, in addition to being bastions of bacteria, trade shows like ...

    2013 brought us a new Nexus smartphone, and a new Nexus 7, but no new Nexus 10. For a while there we were bouncing around the possibility of seeing a new one, either another Samsung model or maybe even something from ASUS, but we rounded-out the year empty handed. Could that Nexus 10 refresh still be in our future? One rumor says “yes,” and suggests that its debut might be mere days away, with Google and Samsung showing the device off at the CES. This account is seriously short on details, but it does offer one compelling spec: that the new Nexus 10 might upgrade to an OLED display. ...

    Samsung has more going for it than arguably any other company in the mobile space right now. It's very nearly usurped Google as the name consumers associate with Android, and while its precise share of the market ebbs and flows, no one's even close to competing with it on the same level – well, Apple, sure, if we're looking at the US, but globally, Samsung's an unstoppable force. And there are plenty of reasons why Samsung deserves to be enjoying the success it is; even though we might have been won over by the HTC One this year, the Galaxy S series of phones continues to be one of the ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Google's same-day delivery of certain Nexus devices. Then we talk about the Geekphone Revolution, which was talked about almost a year a go, and which plans to include iOS and Firefox support. Samsung is next as we talk about the rumors of new line-ups for 2014, including pro and lite tablets. We later shift our focus to the Moto X, as its back on sale again, though for a catch. We end today's show talking about the origins of Android, and how the first iPhone affected it. All this and more after the break. Stories: - Google starts offering ...

    2013 will ultimately be known for a lot of things, but will anyone remember it as the year we finally had to stop waiting for our smartphone orders to be delivered? A couple weeks back we told you about Verizon's program to get new smartphones into the hands of customers the very day they order them online. Now Google's following up with a similar program of its own, offering same-day delivery for select Nexus devices to shoppers it its service area. This is part of Google Shopping Express, a relatively new project that's built all around the idea of same-day delivery for online orders. ...

    Earlier today, while we were busy hanging with some of you fine folks on the latest episode of the Pocketnow Live, a lot was going down elsewhere. Our LG G Flex review was in the final polishing stages; our own Taylor Martin was kicking out some coverage on Motorola's mold-breaking budget wonder, the Moto G; and friend of the show Marques Brownlee was interviewing Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola Mobility. All that activity demands a followup, of course, and what better venue for an end-of-week wrapup than the Pocketnow Weekly podcast? We can't think of any, either. So whether you're here ...

    Most of us in this industry get asked a lot of questions from people in the market to buy new mobile products. "Which smartphone is the best current deal?" "Should I get this phone or that one?" "Which is the best tablet to buy?" But of all the questions I've been asked in my four years of service to the mobile tech media, there is one question that is inherently more difficult to answer than others: "Should I buy a small or full-sized tablet?" The question is difficult to answer to begin with because … who actually needs a tablet? Should anyone buy a tablet to begin with? Of course, ...

    No, dear Nexus 7, my system is not up to date! Android 4.3 is not the latest version out there; Android 4.4 KitKat is, and, according to Google, the roll-out process has started on November 12, five days ago. The Nexus 7, both the 2012 and 2013 versions, alongside the Nexus 10, were targeted with the statement. Well, in our particular case, regardless of how often we check for updates manually, we still get the the same response, pictured above. One of the advantages of rocking a Nexus device is timely updates. Sure you can hack the latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat on your tablet, but ...

    So far, the only device officially running Android 4.4 KitKat was the Nexus 5, though there were plenty of 4.4-based ROMs for several other devices, thanks to the community. However, Google decided to finally change the status quo, as other Nexus-branded devices will start getting the latest version of Android as of today. "Starting today, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) and Nexus 10 will be getting a tasty update to Android 4.4, KitKat", says the official tweet from the Android account. You might want to start abusing the 'check for updates' button. Good news for other Nexus device owners too: ...

    Before anyone gets their hopes up, as of right this instant, the only device that has an official build of Android 4.4 KitKat is Google's own Nexus 5. That will change as soon as Google releases updates for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10, and as other OEMs begin pushing updates to their flagship devices. HTC has already committed to releasing its updates "within 90 days". In the meantime, Google has already pushed KitKat into the AOSP, and you know what that means: custom ROMs! Custom ROMs come in all shapes, sizes, and levels of stability. Some are rock solid, and some may turn your ...
