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.

    With the new Nexus 7 now a reality, Nexus tablet fans have been wondering what sort of 2013 hardware refresh might be similarly in store for the Nexus 10. Back at the new Nexus 7 launch, we heard reports of Google's Sundar Pichai supposedly confirming that Samsung would once again be the company behind the Nexus 10 for this year's model. Now, though, a new leak is raising the question of if ASUS might be the OEM behind the tablet. The info comes from Best Buy's internal computer system, where it shows a Google Nexus 10, apparently manufactured by ASUS. There's a dummy UPC and what looks ...

    Last year, Google really let loose with its Nexus line of devices, graduating from the odd phone every year or so (and the even odder tablet) to step up to a product family composed of not just one, but two different tablets. Obviously, the Nexus 7 got things started, and we just saw that first model replaced with this year's hardware upgrade. Then in October of last year the Nexus 10 launched, and we're similarly looking forward to learn what we might be able to expect from this year's refresh. For a time, looking forward to a new Nexus 10 this year was more assumption than fact, but ...

    With mobile devices, arguably the most important specification is the display. Yes, other specifications are vital, too. Of course, you wouldn't have a smartphone without a large battery, capable processor, GPU, RAM, or storage. But with tablets and smartphones, the primary input and output is the display. It's how you navigate the device, input text, read information, watch videos, and practically everything else you can do with mobile devices. The rapid advancement of display technology only lends credence to the importance of the display. (Not that anyone should dispute the fact ...

    In confirming the new Nexus 7 today, Google put to bed a lot of rumors that have been keeping us busy during the preceding weeks. Now that it's official, we clearly need a new Nexus model to start dominating our thoughts; that obviously includes a new Nexus phone, but what about another tablet? Reportedly, Google's Sundar Pichai has already been talking about plans for a new Nexus 10. While we haven't heard anything from Pichai publicly, The Wall Street Journal's Amir Efrati has been recounting his experience at today's Google event on Twitter, and mentions that Pichai advised that a ...

    Android 4.3 is upon us. It's no game-changer by any means, but it still has a number of interesting things to offer, and any Android fan worth his or her salt is going to be itching to try out this latest build. Google announced that updates would be on their way for the Nexus 4, old Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and the GSM Galaxy Nexus, but at least here in the US, tapping away at the "Check now" button on a Nexus 4, we haven't seen any arrive just yet. We know it should only be a matter of hours, but if you just can't wait, some Android 4.3 factory images have hit Google's Android Developers site. ...

    Samsung, like with its smartphones, has successfully saturated the tablet market with various models and brands that cover a wide array of sizes, specifications, price points, and unique features. The latest of those tablets is the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Oddly enough, the Tab 3 10.1 is strikingly similar to the Tab 2 10.1, on paper. The only major difference is the use of an Intel Atom processor and an ever-so-slightly smaller battery. The 16GB model retails for $399. Unsurprisingly, Samsung also offers another 10-inch tablet in the same price range, although it's sold directly by Google – ...

    Most new-device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not ...

    I need a beer, and I'm sure many of you need a drink as well. If this was five years ago, I'd be by my second pack of cigarettes, and it has to do with how furious I am right now. Let me explain why: For starters, I wish I could express in words how long it took me to love Android. My first device was a Google Nexus One, and man, even though I started off at the right foot, it rarely ever felt that way. What a gorgeous phone and what a great experience overall, as long as I didn't turn it on. Froyo and Gingerbread were just stale and cartoony no matter how much I tried to love the device. ...

    The Nexus 10 is somewhat the "odd man out" in Google's lineup of Nexus hardware. While a good value for what it is, its $400 price tag makes it much less the impulse buy than the $200 Nexus 7, or even the $300 Nexus 4. Is it still managing to attract a following? Well, Google may not be sharing official sales figures, but one analyst has found some data that could be of use in making an educated guess, and the figure it leads to ends up sounding pretty modest. The estimate rests on the Nexus 10's unusual 2560 x 1600 resolution, giving it a screen size described by the OS as "xlarge" and a ...

    Yesterday we got disappointing news about Samsung's tablet prospects, with some leaked data on the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1 mentioning some pretty weak hardware specs. Don't worry, as Samsung apparently has plenty of other tablet plans, and there could also be some much more respectable hardware on the way. To that end, some info about a Samsung tablet code-named Roma has leaked today, and it looks like we could be seeing another model very much like the Nexus 10. From the dual-core Exynos 5 to the 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 display, Roma's specs align nicely with what we're familiar with from ...

    At first, maybe it was cute: Google was still new to its role as a retailer, and Nexus hardware would go up for sale without matching accessories available. But then that started becoming a running theme, and devices like the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 saw their accessories added to the Play Store months, if not the better part of a year after the hardware's initial release. It doesn't look like Google's learned any lessons, as this annoying trend continues today, with the Nexus 10's case finally going up for sale. The good news is that it's pretty affordable. The full-sized "Book Cover" snaps ...

    How much do you love Google Play? Are you seriously digging the new 4.0 Play Store app redesign? Do you tell your friends about all the great app deals you find? Why not channel that enthusiasm into some free stuff, and take advantage of the contest Google just got rolling? Google wants you spreading the word about the Play Store, so it's giving away 21 Nexus devices - including a mix of Nexus 10, 7, and 4 models - as well as 100 $10 Play Store gift cards, just for tweeting about what your favorite Google Play stuff is. This offer is good for US residents only, and while that's not ...

    Ubuntu for Tablets and Phones has consumed my life for the past 30 hours. Canonical announced a developer preview would be arriving yesterday, and when it hit, I dropped everything I was doing and flashed it to the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. I've been playing with it ever since and have mostly good things to say – keeping in mind it is a developer preview and far from any sort of stable release. In its tablet form, Ubuntu 12.10 Touch isn't all that different from the phone version. The home screen layout is horizontal, versus the vertical layout on smaller tablets and phones. There ...
