Google's New Nexus 10 Tablet

Google's scheduled New York announcement event was canceled due to severe weather setbacks, but that didn't stop Google from announcing a few of its new gadgets today, notably its greatest flagship tablet. Meet Google's new Nexus 10 tablet starting at $399 with 16GB of storage. The Samsung-made Nexus 10 is Google's answer to the iPad 4, a slick and powerful 10-inch tablet with a enormously sharp screen resolution of 2560x1600 boasting a pixel density of 300 ppi that rivals if not beats Apple's 9.7-inch iPad 4 with a screen resolution of 2048x1536 (264 ppi).

The Nexus 10 will run a highly updated version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and features a 8.9mm thick form factor with a matte grippable backside and 9 hours of battery life with the following specs - 2GB of RAM, dual-core 1.7GHz Cortex A15 processor, Mali T604 graphics chip, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n (MIMO+HT40), stereo speakers, NFC, Gorilla Glass 2, magnetic charging, micro-USB and HDMI ports. And who can forget about cameras right? With the 10-inch tablet comes a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera as well a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. So it really has all the bells and whistles.

Google's Nexus 10 tablet will come in a 16GB WiFi-only model and 32GB WiFi-only model for $399 and $499, respectively. Both will become available on November 13 in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
