Hardware details, pictures confirm Samsung Nexus 10

With but a few days left to go before Google takes to the stage to unveil some new Android goodies, it stands to reason that we’d get a decent last-minute leak.  That’s exactly the case here today as Brief Mobile has scored a gallery of more than one dozen images for the Samsung Nexus 10.  What’s more, their source has also provided them with a seemingly full list of hardware specifications.

As  it appears, we’re looking a pretty impressive tablet with some cutting-edge specs.  We’d heard this would be a “super” tablet and, based on these details, we’re inclined to agree that this is the proper adjective.

Hit the break for a breakdown of hardware and software features in the Nexus 10, as well as some photos!

    The glass in picture 1 is as greasy as my Nook Color after my six year old son has been playing with it while eating Cheetos… Seriously, what makes a photographer NOT take the few seconds to wipe the device clean before taking his shot? Now the world will have an image of a greasy ol’ looking tablet when thinking of the Nexus 10.

      Bear in mind one of those Mali-T604 cores crushes the 12-Core in the Tegra3 and the Quad Core in the iPad2, so TWO Mali-T604 cores will make mince meat of the older ones…
