Nexus 10 Priced at $399, Ships November 13
Hot on the heels of the 32GB Nexus 7, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) has announced another new table today -- the Nexus 10. Priced at $399 (for the 16GB model) and $499 (for the 32GB iteration), the Nexus 10 features a high-def screen (2,560 x 1,600 resolution, 300 pixels per inch), nine hours of continuous video playback and a whopping 500 hours of standby.
According to Engadget, the tablet will come with Android 4.2 and will feature a pair of front-facing stereo speakers. It is scheduled to ship on November 13 -- just 11 days after the iPad Mini arrives.
This is an interesting role-reversal for Google and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL). During the earlier months of the year, Apple worked hard to promote its full-size tablet as a premium, must-have device. Google, on the other hand, attempted to prove that consumers could be just as productive -- and just as entertained -- while using a cheaper seven-inch tablet. Now the two companies are switching sides. Apple wants the world to believe that the $329 iPad Mini is the latest must-own gadget, while Google hopes consumers will buy its pricier unit.
In addition to the aforementioned features, the Nexus 10 also contains a dual-core 1.7GHz Exynos 5250 processor from Samsung, 2GB of RAM and Bluetooth 4.0 support. The Wi-Fi-only device will also ship with a five-megapixel rear-facing camera.
Google plans to sell the device in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Spain, Japan and Canada.
