Reasons You Should Not Buy Google Nexus 10 and Wait for Apple iPad 5 Release

There can be no doubt that the Google Nexus 10.2 is looking like an iPad 5 killer tablet. The Google Nexus 10.2 release date is nearing and so is the Apple iPad 5 release date. Let us compare both to decide which one is worth the wait.There can be no doubt that the Google Nexus 10.2 is looking like an iPad 5 killer tablet. The Google Nexus 10.2 release date is nearing and so is the Apple iPad 5 release date. Let us compare both to decide which one is worth the wait.

First things first, both of these 10 inch tablets will be running brand new operating systems; the Google Nexus 10.2 will use Android 4.4 KitKat and the Apple iPad 5 will run iOS 7. A major hurdle for the iPad 5 is the Nexus 10’s expandable memory, something no iPad has had till date. Both the Google Nexus 10.2 and the iPad 5 are expected to have LTE capabilities. It is quite possible that Apple will boost the iPad 5’s speed with the A7 processor seen in the iPhone 5s.

In conclusion, both of these devices are a cut above the rest. The old Nexus 10 had an amazing screen that was 10.1 inches and had a resolution of 2560 by 1600pi – it is quite clear that the new Nexus 10.2 will use the same screen if not better, giving it a good chance to be an iPad 5 killer. The iPad 5, like all Apple products, is a near perfect combination of style and hardware and software in perfect balance for a smooth experience. … Read the rest
