Google Nexus 10 2 from Asus to cost £350

UPDATE: A new listing on the Curry internal systems has seemingly confirmed that the Nexus 10 will be made by Asus and will come with a £349.99 price tag.

The new leak from Currys, sent by an anonymous worker to AndroidCentral, supports earlier rumours that the next Google Nexus 10 will be made by Asus and be more expensive than the existing 10-inch slate.

Both Currys and PC World are owned by the Dixons Group, which explains why both stores have the same listing for the new Google Nexus 10.

Original Story:
A new model of the Google Nexus 10 has appeared in a UK retail listing, which points to Asus as the manufacturer and a price tag of £349.99.

The internal retail listing in question seems to stem from PC World UK, which was snapped and shared by Twitter user Rage06 and confirmed as “legit” by reliable tipster @evleaks. It mentions a device called the ‘Google Asus Nexus 10.’

Given that the current first generation Google Nexus 10 is made by Samsung, this would seem to be confirmation of the Google Nexus 10 2. There have been rumours in recent months that the new full-size Nexus would be made by Asus, too.

It would appear that Google has switched all of its tablet-making duties to the Taiwanese manufacturer, which made the original Google Nexus 7 as well as the recently launched Google Nexus 7 2.

Also worth noting is the listed price. The cost of £349.99 suggests that the Google Nexus 10 2 will be a higher grade of device than the original, which debuted (and continues to sell) for £319.99.

Of course, this would follow in line with the aforementioned 7-series, which received a fairly hefty boost in performance and all-round quality for a £40 price bump.

There’s still no word on the Google Nexus 10 2’s specs, but there’s a good chance we’ll find out in mid-October when Google is expected to be holding a launch event for the Google Nexus 5 smartphone. There could well be a 10-inch addition.
