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.

    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 ...

    Last week, Google delivered the Nexus 5, Android 4.4 KitKat... and that's it. What happened to the Nexus 10? After all, last year we saw Google's ten-inch tablet debut alongside the Nexus 4 and Android 4.2, and while we didn't really have any evidence going into the launch this time that made the debut of a refreshed Nexus 10 2013 seem like a certainty – well... it just would have made a lot of sense for it to show up then, wouldn't it? So where does that leave us? There have been enough leaks and rumors pointing to work on a new Nexus 10, but details have been exceedingly light. Early ...

    After far too much speculation, lots of waiting, and a surprise name-change in the middle of things, Android 4.4 KitKat is official. It's not the huge card-based UI overhaul that we thought it might be, and it doesn't introduce a Pie-like launcher, but it is filled with sweet goodness. So, sit back and let's break off a piece of that KitKat bar OS and see what new KitKat features Android 4.4 brings. Tighter Google Now integration We've been asking for tighter integration with Google Now since we first saw it. Android 4.4 KitKat finally brings that. Similar to the Moto X, Android ...

    There comes a point where rumors and leaks become so old, that we just get bored of covering them. Still, there are certain products that are just so hot, and so game-changing, that we can't get enough of all the drama that goes around it's probable future. For the last couple of months, we've followed Google's plans for their Nexus line-up, and even though we still don't have event dates, nor press invites, that doesn't mean our wallets can't wait for it to happen. Watch today's Top 5, as we go through our predictions of what to expect for Google's Nexus line-up in the next couple of ...

    As you're probably well aware by now, there's been no shortage when it comes to leaks and rumors about the next Nexus smartphone, set to arrive as the Nexus 5. We're still not sure just when the handset will go official (and despite Google throwing an event tonight, word is that there won't be any new announcements, Nexus-related or otherwise), but we've seen enough so far to have a decent understanding of what's waiting for us. The story hasn't been quite the same for the Nexus 10, and despite a few signs pointing to this new hardware, it's remained a much larger mystery. Now we're ...

    Samsung is unquestionably capable of making some compelling tablets – Android and Windows alike. Last year, the Nexus 10 was widely considered one of the best Android tablets available. Its display was one of the best tablet displays around. And it ran the purest form of Android possible. This year, Samsung's penchant for tablets is just as strong as ever. And the latest addition to its lineup is the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. With 3GB RAM, the same resolution display, S Pen, TouchWiz's multitasking software, and the Exynos Octa chipset, is the Note 10.1 2014 Edition enough to take ...
