Nexus 10 is the newest tablet from Google. With the world’s highest resolution tablet display, all new multi-user support, immersive HD content and the best Google apps – Nexus 10 has something for everyone.
The Nexus 10 is a tablet computer developed by Google and Samsung. It is the second tablet in the Google Nexus series, a line of consumer devices implementing the Android operating system and built by original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners. Following the success of the 7-inch Nexus 7—the first Google Nexus tablet—the Nexus 10 was released with a 10.1-inch, 2560×1600 pixel display, which in 2012 was the world's highest resolution tablet display.
The Nexus 10 was announced on October 29, 2012, and became available on November 13, 2012. The device is available in two storage sizes, 16 GB for US$399 and 32 GB for US$499. Along with the Nexus 4 mobile phone, the Nexus 10 launched version 4.2 ("Jelly Bean") of Android, which offers the following new features: 360° panoramic photo stitching called "Photo Sphere"; a quick settings menu; widgets on the lock screen; gesture typing; an updated version of Google Now; and multiple user accounts for tablets.
The device was scheduled to be announced by Google on October 29, 2012, along with the Nexus 4 and Android 4.2, in a conference in New York City, but as a result of Hurricane Sandy, the event was cancelled. Instead, Google revealed the device in an official blog post. Due to high demand, the device quickly sold out through the Google Play store. The 16 GB version came back to the Google Play Store on November 18, but as of that date the 32 GB version was still sold out.
