not an apple or android fan, but IMHO this tablet is better than the ipad. Apple launched the ipad 4 with retina display and a faster processor as its biggest plus, everything else is just like the first ipad. On the other hand android launched this tablet with a better display and a very fast processor aswell, and for a more reasonable price. Jellybean vs ios will always be a huge debate among apple and android fans, truth is both os are great. Had my hands on this tablet and it just feels great, much better than the ipad. When watching videos the nexus 10 displays better widescreen, whereas the ipad doesnt because of its shape. You get black stripes at the top and bottom of the video on the ipad, this is due to ipad's square-like shape. You have better wifi reception on nexus since it has a plastic back, unlike aluminum back on ipad. The only thing I dont like on this tablet is that it doesnt have a wifi+cellular version, that is why I am switching to nexus 7 wifi+cellular.
Its a sad day..
I have had put my 32gb nexus 10 up for sale on ebay.
Its an awesome device and probably the best 10 inch tablet available but.... I just find my tab 7.7 a lot more portable and better for what i want.
I have always felt that a 10 tablet wasnt for me but had to make sure...
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2012specs specs specs, I think you fandroids continue to use specs, when in fact specs mean nothin... moreYou actually sound like a apple fanboy ios its for people who can not understand how to use Android, Android has much more features, with better specs and a better operating system this tablet kills the iPad 4, all apple had is a army of brain washed consumer slaves who think it must be best because it is apple, apple may have been the best once upon a time but not anymore
Amir Masoud, 19 Nov 2012dual core? :D nexus 7 is quad core !Do some research then type.... Dualcore A15 processors are waaayyy faster than Quadcore A9 processors.
AnonD-77512, 18 Nov 2012Can't wait for the Gsmarena to make a review of this tablet..I agree!
Here are my initial thoughts having used my nexus 10 for nearly 2 hours.
- Build quality feels great, no creaks and looks really nice (IMHO a lot better than the iPad)
- The speakers are really good and add a lot of feel too movies and games.
- Having migrated from a Tab 7.7 so it feels a bit heavy and cumbersome. Not a fault of the device just something to get used too.
- The screen looks awesome, really sharp, white whites and black blacks.
- I am not totally struck on the google launcher. I might end up heading back to Go Launcher, I think its use of folders, transitions etc is better.
- There seem to be a few options missing in the OS, like adjusting the vibration intensity of key strokes.
- Battery charge time seems slow and it is chewing battery life but that said I am downloading a heap of apps so I might be being unfair.
- The charge cable is a lot longer than my Note 2… Samsung has learned from that mistake :-)
Will I keep it or sell and stay with the tab 7.7? I’m not sure yet… I am yet to be convinced that the 10” tablet market is for me. I brought it primarily for web browsing and movies so time will tell.

FAtih, 14 Nov 2012Why there is no card slot ? :( 32 GB is not enough.. No card slot because Google doesn't need crowded customers standing in front of its store like iPad!

anyone from Burnaby B.C here? Go to Metrotown.
Go to the Samsung Store. Then go to the apple store. Apple is the busiest store in the mall with exception of the super market and forever 21. Its not close. You guys shoulnd't compare this to the ipad4.

imma suggest u not to use any tablet by then
dont know why people think 32 gb is not enough for them... if u wana treat ur tablet as a pc or laptop n store 100s of full hd movies then 1TB is also not enuf for u guyz as demands always increases if company provides a better n higher things... 32 gb is a standard storage n for me 16 gb is standard storage coz i dont watch movies on my smartphone or tablet.. . i just watch some small videos, listen music, browse internet n have some hd games that comes under 10 gb thus a 16 gig storage is more than enough for me... if u have twice of apps than methen 32 gig is enough for u... but if u watch all movies on ur tablet then 100 GB is also not sufficient for u...
