Press release 

Nexus 10: Powerful and shareable 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.

Pricing: 16GB for $399; 32GB for $499; available on 11/13 in the Google Play Store in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan.

  • This is a big disappointment. £200 for 3″ of screen! I was really hoping for a reasonably priced 10″ tablet. Looks like this isn’t it.

    Its not the 3″ of screen your paying for, its the resolution. 2560*1600 is an amazing resolution for a 10″ screen. I suppose the only thing missing is a 64gig version.
    The SOC it uses looks impressive http://www.anandtech.com/show/6148/samsung-announces-a15malit604-based-exynos-5-dual on a par with the a5x / A6 from Apple. It is a dual core 1.7gig CPU with a quad core GPU. HDMI out is good, micro usb connector too, I wonder if you’ll be able to hook up a portable HD to it? Price wise it is a bargain….The iPad 3 is £90 more and the iPad mini is only £40 less, that’s the 32gig pricing.
