Google Nexus 10, the new tablet manufactured by Samsung, has become the most impressive and fastest Android tablet this year. Moreover, its screen is even sharper than the Retina Display on iPad and most importantly, the price tag is $100 cheaper.
The Nexus 10 is running on Android 4.2 and priced at $399 for 16 GB or $499 for 32GB edition. It also features cutting-edge technologies such as the the brand new Samsung’s dual-core 1.7Ghz Exynos 5 processor, the first chip in a tablet using the ARM Cortex-A15 architecture. Probably the most impressive feature of the tablet is its huge and super high definition display. I am pretty sure that all consumers will get excited with the screen, it even out-pixels the new iPad 4 (Nexus 10’s display is 300 ppi while the iPad 4 is 264 ppi).
