Nexus 10 said to launch October 29

Written by Peter Scott



Wishful thinking or true game changer?


Google will unveil the new LG Nexus on October 29 and now there is talk that a 10-inch Nexus could show its face at the event as well.

Samsung’s Nexus 10 leaked last month and it’s said to feature a 2560x1600 display powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5 chip. Pretty impressive specs to say the least, the best screen on the market backed by the first A15 chip.

The new tablet, codenamed Manta, is also said to feature Android 4.2 and thenextweb.com now claims it’s coming in a week or so, just in time to counter the iPad mini and Microsoft Surface RT. However, we’re still not convinced it’s just days away from launch.

True, Google did show off an Exynos 5-powered device last week, which proves the new chip is ready for prime time, but this doesn’t prove much. If true, the Nexus 10 could easily trump both the Surface and iPad in terms of sheer power and screen resolution, but we are not seeing too much consumer enthusiasm about Android tablets and a great spec sheet probably won’t turn things around overnight.
