Not even a hurricane could stop it; Google has officially announced the Nexus 10, the Android 4.2 “super” tablet from Samsung. Arriving on November 13, the tablet runs the latest build of Jelly Bean and is called the “ultimate tablet for watching movies or reading magazines”.
Details include front and rear cameras, a 1.7GHz processor, 2GB RAM, and a 10.1-inch screen running at 2560×1600 pixels. Pricing for the 16GB model will be $399 while the 32GB version comes in at $499 when it is made available in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan.
Nexus 10 is the ultimate tablet for watching movies or reading magazines. We wanted to build a premium entertainment device, so we partnered with Samsung to do just that. Nexus 10 is the highest resolution tablet on the planet at 2560-by-1600 (300ppi), that’s over 4 million pixels right in your hands. It comes with a powerful battery that will get you up to nine hours of video playback and more than 500 hours of standby time. With a set of front-facing stereo speakers, you can watch movies right from your Nexus 10 and they simply sound awesome. But what makes Nexus 10 unique is that it’s the first truly shareable tablet. With Android 4.2, you can add multiple users and switch between them instantly right from the lockscreen. We believe that everyone should have quick and easy access to their own stuff — email, apps, bookmarks, and more. That way, everyone can have their own home screens, their own music, and even their own high scores.
