Google is stirring a hurricane of their own today, announcing a new Nexus 10 tablet that is no doubt their attempt to squash Apples iPad 4. Interestingly, while Google chose LG for the Nexus 4, they opted for Samsung for this 10.055-inch tablet. The Nexus 10 will join Samsungs fleet of high-end Android devices, packing a better-than-Retina display of 2,560 x 1,600, measuring 300 ppi. According to Google, the Nexus 10 will offer up to nine hours of battery life, thanks to a 9,000 mAh hunker. Unfortunately, the Nexus 10 doesnt run a quad-core processor, rather opts for Samsungs dual-core 1.7 GHz Exynos 5250 CPU with quad-core graphics. For more about this, check out  Nexus 10 tablet.  nder the hood youll also find 2 GB of RAM, an NFC chip, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi with MIMO, Bluetooth 4.0, among other components. On the front of the tablet lies a 1.9-megapixel camera suitable for Skype calls, with a higher 5-megapixel shooter on the back. Port-wise, the Nexus 10 sports your typical microHDMI and microUSB connectors, in addition to your standard 3.5mm headphone jack, plus Pogo Pin. Google touts the Nexus 10 as being the worlds highest resolution display, which is quite a zing for Apple. Google shouldnt speak too early this display will likely eat battery life rather quickly. Nonetheless, the screen is taking center stage in their marketing campaign for the Nexus 10 tablet. Pricing: Nexus 10s Fatal Flaw Up until now, the Nexus 10 was sounding pretty sweet, right? Enjoy this while it lasts, because the 16 GB Nexus 10 will set you back $399 bananas. Thats a lot of green for an Android tablet, considering Amazons 8.9-inch Kindle Fire only costs $299. And if you want 32 GB of storage, youre looking at $499, approaching iPad territory. Perhaps Google truly believes the Nexus 10 is better than the 8.9-inch Amazon tablet. Maybe it is, but its a long shot at best. Besides a clean version of Android, it doesnt offer anything so revolutionary that its worth spending the extra $100. If the extra 1-inch of screen real estate is important to you, you owe it to yourself to wait until both devices go through the product review limelight. Too Little, Too Late? Googles pricing on the Nexus 10 is less than stellar, however; pricing aside, does the Nexus 10 stand a chance? Amidst the Kindles and iPads of the world, is there room for a flagship Android tablet? Samsungs track record isnt spectacular with regard to their Galaxy 10. And Galaxy Note 10.1 devices.  For more info, visit this site
