The Google Nexus 10 is back in stock and on sale at the Google Play store, with both 16GB and 32GB models available to be shipped in 3-5 business days.

Google’s rival to the iPad 4, the Google Nexus 10 Android device launched in November, but has been for the most part completely sold out. However, both 16GB and 32GB Wi-Fi models have reappeared at the Google Play store, priced £319 and £389 respectively.

More stock for the Google’s 10-inch tablet arrived over Christmas and again at the beginning of this month, but the devices were quickly bought by excited customers. The number of Google Nexus 10 in stock this time is unknown, so you had better get clicking if you want one.

Google Nexus 10 features

Google Nexus 10 is manufactured by Samsung and offers the powerful dual-core Exynos 5250 1.7GHz processor and a stunning 2,592 x 1,936 pixel screen. The display uses Samsung’s take on the IPS tech seen in the iPad range, dubbed PLS, meaning viewing angles, colours and contrast are brilliant.

The brother of worldwide bestseller the Google Nexus 7, the Google Nexus 10 is also prized for its value for money and top specs. It costs almost £100 less than the iPad 4, it currently uses Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, the latest version of the OS. Wi-Fi models are available, although there are no 3G or 4G versions out yet.

With a 5-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM and a battery life of around 8 hours of intensive use, the only let down of the Nexus 10 is the fact the body is made of plastic, not metal. However, it’s a well-made tablet that is unbeatable on price.

Stop tempting me! I want a microSD slot, Wacom stylus (preferably with Samsung's hover functionality) and a Transformer-like (or Surface-like) keyboard. Also I'm not convinced the hardware can drive that many pixels satisfactorily for gaming. However this is still a big step-up from my Transformer Prime so it's still tempting.

I'm hoping MWC will feature some tablets that will give me everything I'm after.

Are you guys going to do a full review by the way? As the highest-spec Android tablet currently available I'd have thought it'd get more attention, not just from you but on other sites too.

The only thing stopping me from getting a nexus 10 is that i can still get a refurbished iPad 4 for $20 less (USA). Ahhhh! I still want the better screen and more power! i'm so confused! what should i do!

If this news had come out early December we all would have been cheering

As it is a major hardware upgrade looks like its on the cards @ MWC

If you waited this long - great news - No buyers remorse for you - Dont press that buy button

Wait a month; MWC should be interesting.

Although if you want to do a lot of 3D gaming the iPad is a lot better, and it's not so much the hardware as the games available, which won't change with MWC.

I struggled deeply between the Apple iPad 4th generation and the Google Nexus 10 for quite some time before finally deciding to go with the Nexus 10. I am mostly confident in it's future because I am confident in the Android operating system. The iPad is a great device but I think the Nexus is better in regards to quality build for insight into what consumers want.. It still has some newcomer issues like fewer apps and fewer accessories but I am confident it will catch up. Apple is far too restrictive about what can go on and what can go off of its devices! I hate having to give up that kind of control over "my" device. I already did it with the 27" inch iMac but I prefer the freedom of Android. The Nexus 10 is just so darn addictive once you give it a chance and give it a try. It is easy to learn and easy to like. It is cheaper, too. It's biggest draw back is that it lacks tthe support that Apple excels at. Nexus 10 support at the customer contact level is still in the Stone Age but it's obvious commitment to improving it's quality is commendable. It has initiated a new era where Apple finally has some serious competition and all things fairly equal, the Nexus 10 will benefit greatly by Apple's crudeness in trying to over-control how consumers want to use "their devices" and the snobbishness of its pricing.
