Nexus 10, the new tablet by Google and Samsung, is official at last

We had read so much about it. We had seen the pictures it takes, even a video of it. But now it’s official.

Google revealed the new Nexus 10 tablet they created along with Samsung, the first device by the company to run on the new updated version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.2.

It’s a tablet with an impressive 10-inch screen, with a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels and a pixel density of 300 ppi. Google calls its screen technology “True RBB Real Stripe PLS”, and The Verge’s journalists were among the first lucky few to get their hands on the device and compare it to the iPad’s Retina Display technology.

The device features a dual-core ARM Cortex A15 chip with 2 GB of RAM, as well as a quad-core graphics chipset. Also present is a 5-MP camera on the back of the device, as well as a front-face one at 1.9 MP. As for the battery in Google’s new tablet, it amounts to 9000 mAh, which, according to the company, provides up to 9 hours of HD video playback.

The rest of the Nexus 10 capabilities include two speakers, micro USB and micro HDMI ports, as well as two NFC chips. The tablet weighs 603 gr and it is 8.9 mm thick.

We should note that it will be released in two versions, with 16 and 32 GB of storage, and it will only support WiFi, but not 3G. As for the announced price across the Atlantic, it’s 399 dollars for the 16 GB version and 499 dollars for the 32 GB version. It will be available since November 13th through Google Play in America, England, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. All we can do is wait.
