Google announces new Nexus 10 tablet with higher resolution than iPad’s Retina display

// October 29th, 2012 // Mobile



Google unveiled the Nexus 10 tablet today. Manufactured by Samsung, the Nexus 10 will be introduced as the “highest resolution tablet on the planet” as it sports a stunning 2560 x 1600 display with 300 ppi. It will include Samsung’s new Cortex A15-based Exynos 5 dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, quad-core Mali T604 GPU, 2GB RAM, two NFC chips (one in front and one in back), 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 10.1 inch Super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1600 resolution and nearly 299 ppi (crushing Apple’s Retina display at 264 ppi), 1.9 megapixel front camera, 5 megapixel rear camera, dual front-facing speakers for true stereo sound, and a whopping 9,000mAh battery providing 9 hours of video playback time. It includes a micro USB port and micro HDMI port.

All the killer specs just about make up for the fact that the device lacks a microSD card slot.

The rear of the tablet features a soft-touch backing with a removable cover that can be changed out with after-market backings that provide a special cover for the tablet.

The device will ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and will arrive November 11, 2012 priced at $399 for the 16GB model and $499 for the 32GB model (about $100 cheaper than comparable iPad products).
