Google Nexus 10 Tablet Launched, Brings 2560 x 1600 Display

It turns out that we spoke too soon when we said, yesterday (October 29, 2012), that Google would not be selling the Samsung-manufactured Nexus 10 tablet as planned.

Although Hurricane Sandy really did force the company to cancel its launch event, Google decided to just make the announcement on the Internet and be done with it. This is the fabled ultra-high resolution slate that iPad lovers might want to watch out for. The 10.055-inch Super AMOLED screen is a 2560 x 1600 panel (300 pixels per inch / ppi). Since we are on the subject, we may as well say what other important components are part of this slate. The Samsung Exynos 5250 is the so-called heart. It is the first Cortex A15-based processor to hit the market and runs at 1.7 GHz. 2 GB of RAM are present as well, along with a Mali-T604 GPU (graphics processing unit) and 16 GB or 32 GB of NAND Flash storage.

Curiously enough, there is no microSD card slot here, so buyers won't be able to extend the capacity, unlike on most other tablets of today. Finally, the tablet is equipped with NFC (near field communication), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. As for software, the Android 4.2 operating system is installed (Jelly Bean with a minor update), complete with multi-user functionality. What that means is that multiple user accounts can be set up, like in Microsoft Windows, with their own passwords, file access settings, game high score charts, home screens, music, etc. Finally, the battery can last for up to nine hours of video playback, or 500 hours of standby.

Google will be selling the Nexus 10 from November 13, 2012 onwards, through Walmart and the Google Play store, in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan. The price is of $399 / 399 Euro for the 16 GB slate and $499 / 499 Euro for the 32 GB tablet.
