The Nexus 10 is in desperate need of a redesign after launching back in November 2012, but with no update in sight Staples has pulled the device from its online store. Visiting the product’s former page now brings you to Staples.com’s main tablets webpage, and it won’t show up in a search. The device is still available from Amazon, though supplies are limited. The 32GB model is still available from Google Play, though the 16GB model is not available.
Considering that the 16GB Nexus 10 hasn’t been available through Google Play since October, it’s tempting to think the news could mean an updated 10-inch Google tablet is in the works. Unfortunately, we don’t see many current leaks suggesting we’ll see any update any time soon.
Earlier this year we saw a good number of leaks suggesting the new Nexus 10 was being developed by either Samsung or ASUS, but with 2013 coming to an end it seems unlikely we’ll see the new 10-inch tablet any time soon. If we see any rumors about a new Nexus tablet or even an upcoming Android 4.5 update that could coincide with a new product release, we’ll let you know, though it’s more likely we’ll see some sort of 10.1-inch slate launch as a Google Play Edition device instead.
