The 10-inch tablet market is more or less controlled by Apple — that’s just the way it is. But Google isn’t giving up just yet; the company, following its universally revered Nexus 7, has introduced a 10-inch Samsung-made tablet running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. And it sounds pretty incredible.
There are so many things to like about Google’s brand new beauty, particularly its $400 starting price. It’s clearly aimed at snatching up Apple customers, and bests the iPad in just about every spec category, including one that Apple has wielded for the past eight months: Screen resolution. The Nexus 10 has a 2560×1600 display, outdoing the iPad’s 264 ppi with 300 ppi.
Also included is a 1.7GHz Samsung Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera, and up to 10 hours of battery. It’s only available through Google Play, which is unfortunate, but it’s what keeps the price low — a small compromise for such a great device.
