Google launches Nexus 10, revamped Nexus 7

Written by Peter Scott



Nexus 10 starts at just $399


Google might have been forced to cancel its Nexus launch event, but surprisingly it rolled out the new devices on Play Store as planned. Hurricane Sandy? Sorry we are not impressed.

However, we are very impressed by Google’s decision to price the new Nexus 10 16GB at just $399. The 32GB version ended up with a $499 price tag, but even that sounds pretty cheap compared to the iPad and Surface RT. The Nexus 10 won’t win any beauty pageants, but it sports a dual-core Exynos 5250 processor and a 2560x1600 screen, making it the best spec’d tablet on the market. All things considered, the Nexus 10 seems to deliver unbeatable value for money in the 10-inch tablet space.

Google also used the opportunity to introduce the revamped Nexus 7, with a bit of additional storage and optional 3G. The 16GB version now sells for $199, while the new 32GB unit goes for $249, but the latter is also available with 3G for $299. The Nexus 7 refresh wasn’t much of a secret and the prices are in line with earlier rumours.

However, the Nexus 10 is bound to raise quite a few eyebrows, and not just at Cupertino and Redmond. With one fell swoop Google and Samsung have rendered all 10-inch Android tablets obsolete, not to mention overpriced.

Why would anyone buy any other high-end Android tablet? Well, looks come to mind, but at $399 - who cares.
