As the holidays approach the biggest question arises as to what should be that grand pick? Is it a Samsung Tab or a Google Nexus? Let us have a quick glance at the specifications of these brilliant devices offered by the two tech giants.
Google Nexus 10 2: The market is witnesses a never-ending wait towards the release of the second generation Google Nexus 10. It is supposed to sport a 10.1 inches screen, a superb Plane-to-Line Switching TFT touch-screen. It will have an upgraded Gorilla Glass coating. It will have a pixel density of 299 ppi offering 16 million colors.
Google will most probably use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and a 2.3GHz quad core Krait 400 processor for its Nexus 10 2. Moreover it will have 330 GPU graphics. Google Nexus 10 2 is expected to have a 3GB RAM and will mostly feature Android 4.4 Kitkat.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1: Being lightweight this tablet brings grand success to Samsung. With a 64GB of storage expansion it definitely allows you to store anything and everything. It works on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and Samsung’s TouchWiz Ul skin. The useful feature named Smart Stay switches the tablet to sleep when the user is looking away from it.
The notification panel can be customized depending on your usage pattern. The device has a TFT touchscreen, 16 million colors with 1280×800 pixels and 149 ppi pixel density.
The existing Google Nexus 10 is considered to have better resolution than Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Hence Google’s Nexus 10 2 is expected to be an improvement over the Nexus 10, which in turn will prove to be a better buy than Samsung Tab 3 10.1. But for a mid-range table the latter offers good qualities.
After the release of iPhone 5C/5S, Google has geared up for the big Nexus event, to be held in mid-October. The latest buzz of the Smartphone world reveals that Google will release the Nexus 10 tab, a day before the Apple proposed iPad 5/ iPad Mini occasion scheduled on 15th October. Google wants a head start before Apple grabs some great attention. The 1st version of Nexus 10 proved to be a great alternative to Apple’s iPads.

Apple often plants a seed onto gadget ground around spring but this seems to have become passé this season! However, we are all too keen to get hands on the next iPad—probably the iPad 5-as per the classic naming convention that Apple went by.
Right at the beginning, the release date is a thread that rumors are being strung around. The mills have been sirening that any month could be a probable release date. Gen Munster, Analyst at Apple says that April might be the month that could see the iPad 5. However, this is not very likely, though we trust that a date around October could be bang on.
The iPad 5 display is rumored to come laced with latest technology such as IGZO and a total overhaul of the design is on cards. The display might come to be worked upon by Apple and Sharp in unison. This shall entail better quality, more responsiveness and ‘write-ability’ on screen with even a pencil!
The touch panel is pegged to get better and the thin-film DITO (G/F2) touch screen from iPad 2 could make a comeback in the iPad 5. Thinner, faster and more elegant—the retina display-laced iPad could work wonders.
Apple already gave us a front camera on its iPad 4 and the baby in making might see the rear camera climb up pixels to stand at 8MP. Here is a list we drafted in terms of specs for the iPad 5:
8MP rear facing camera
Apple A7 quad-core processor
