Google Nexus 10 price and launch date officially revealed

Google has officially unveiled the Nexus 10, a 10.1-inch tablet with a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution.

The tablet runs the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS, but it’s its screen which will garner the most attention. With a pixel density of 300ppi, it’s even sharper than the iPad 4’s Retina Display (which has 264ppi). And what’s more, the price is cheaper too: the Google Nexus 10 16GB will be £319 compared to the iPad 4’s £399 price tag; the 32GB Nexus 10 will cost £399 as compared to £479 for the 32GB iPad 4.

The Google Nexus 10’s specs include a dual-core ARM Cortex A15 CPU, 2GB of RAM, NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi (no cellular data version will be available at first), 5MP rear camera, 1.9MP front camera and a 9000mAh battery that will last for nine hours when playing HD video. There are micro HDMI and micro USB ports, as well as a 3.5mm headphone socket.

The tablet is 603g in weight and measures 264 x 178 x 8.9mm.

It also comes with Android 4.2, a slightly updated version of Jelly Bean with a handful of new features such as Gesture Typing (similar to Swype, this lets you type by dragging your finger around the keyboard instead of tapping) and Photo Sphere (a stitching tool that lets you easily shot 360-degree photos).

The Google Nexus 10 is due to go on sale on 13th of November.
