With the rumours Google Nexus 10 2 tablet around, it remains to be seen when the official release date is out. As of now, there are no signs of the release before 2013 ends. A new year release is more likely for the much awaited tablet.
With holidays in full swing, it was probable that Google would have announced the tablet release before Black Friday shopping fiesta. It is safe to assume now that Google would not release the device in the coming few weeks, given that many users would have finalised on their decisions regarding what device to bring home. If a few reports have to be believed, Google Nexus 10 2 might be scrapped away, once the previous generation Nexus 10 is sold out. 16GB variant of Nexus 10 has been already sold out, the 32GB variant is still in stock on the Play Store. There is information going around that may imply that Google is currently focusing on releasing 8-inch tablet to compete head on with Apple iPad mini. Maybe the tech giant knows the smaller devices do well in the market, perhaps taking a leaf out of Apple’s book?
Whether the information is correct or not, Android aficionados will definitely want to grab Nexus 10 2 if the tablet does release. Nexus 10 2 has been expected to be powered by quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 330 GPU. The tablet may have the same screen size as in the Nexus 10, but with Gorilla Glass 3 coating for protecting it against damages and scratches. From the featured 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution at 299 ppi of the screen, it seems the tablet is highly suited for HD viewing. Up to 64GB expandable memory is possible. With battery capacity of 9,500mAh, Nexus 10 2 can give some fierce competition to Apple iPad Air.
HP launched the new version of its sleek hybrid, Split 2 even as it faces stiff competition from the Google Nexus 10 2.
The HP Split 2 is powered by a present-generation Intel Core i-Series processor, as opposed to the Atom processor ship that powered the original version Envy 2. With its new processor, the Split 2 is almost identical like any other 13-inch ultrabook –kind laptop. The Split 2 looks great for web surfing all day long, media playback, productivity and emails.
The CPU is fitted in the top half of the device apart from the SSD storage, battery and the RAM. The HP Split 2 comes with 128 GB SSD storage. The keyboard base unit of the Split 2 can accommodate a second battery and also a bigger platter hard drive. What this means is that the user can use SSD in its lid for comply used files and programs. At the same time, 500 GB HDD can be kept in the base for music and movies archives.
The Google Nexus 10 2 surprises one and all with its stunning screen. It features Super PLS (Plane-to-line switching ) screen which is undoubtedly the best display so far seen on any Android OS tablet/hybrid and looks beautiful. It is also interesting to see how it fares against the 2,048×1,536-pixel Retina Display of the iPad 2. The Google Nexus 10 2’s screen offers astounding clarity. It provides sharp, crisp text and renders lifelike videos and images.
The Google Nexus 10 2 also delivers incredible performance. This is the fastest ever Android tablet that is available in the market. Be it switching apps or navigating menus, it offers great speed to provide a seamless usage. Also, its speed is not affected considering that it renders impressive pixels. This only proves the immense power that the Exynos 5250 processor chip provides.
Looks like Google is playing a clever game to up its stake. With the Nexus 10 never showing up for real, this time, the wait is getting all too long. Some time back, we had been going wow over the features that the 10-incher tablet would come with.
Now, it is only the rumor mills that have any interest left in the arrival of the Nexus 10. From the latest, we read up, Google has changed its plans and is looking to launch a tab close to the 8/9 inch mark. If this is true, then the Nexus 10 would never real step out into the real world.
With Black Friday and cyber Monday having gone past, Google lost the opportunity to deflect the buzz off the Apple iPad Air and iPad Mini. The features of the Nexus 10 are killers in their own right. Check out to see if we are exaggerating:
2560×1600 pixel resolution
8-megapixel rear camera
2.1-megapixel front clicker
Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip
However, the choice of Qualcomm does ring in the hint that these could be rumored specs doing the rounds. In fact, the leaked image too appears too perfect. Therefore, we still choose to take it easy, the Nexus 10 might arrive but we are no way certain! Until then, better to feed our tastes with the iPad. … Read the rest
