Samsung Nexus 10 Announced, Beats Out Apple’s iPad Retina Display

While Apple might have given us a new iPad 4th gen recently, it is no longer the king of displays. Today Google announced the Samsung Nexus 10 with an extremely impressive 2560 x 1600 display.

The new Nexus 10 not only has a sharper display than the iPad 3rd and 4th generation models, it also has a powerful Samsung Exynos 5 SoC. As for graphics, the Mail 604 GPU is nothing short of incredible. At every level, the Samsung Nexus 10 seems to raise the bar, even though we don’t know everything about the hardware yet. As for the battery, it should provide about 9 hours of video playback on just one charge.

If that doesn’t intrigue you, the Nexus 10 is just $399 for a 16GB model or $499 for the 32GB variant. Honestly, no, the Samsung Nexus 10 isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as what Apple is offering but it is more powerful and yet still manages to cost $100 less. If you don’t have a ton invested into Apple’s iTune ecosystem and don’t mind giving Android 4.2 a chance, this could certainly be a tempting alternative to Apple’s iPad.

What do you think, interested or will you stick with the iPad, or perhaps the Microsoft Surface, instead?

    Compliments for Samsung and Google!, of producing this quite great device(the Nexus 10).

      Alright buddy, calm down.. we need to establish a few things here: just because it has a better retina display doesn’t mean that it’s a better product. A retina display is only HOW SOMETHING LOOKS. Not how it functions. What if it freezes every 5 minutes, the touch screen doesn’t work as well, and the apps aren’t as good? So don’t call people who have the iPad “against the evolving of technology”, because that’s just uneducated and rude. People will always buy the things that work better. Obviously, none of us have used this Nexus 10 thing before (at least not yet), so wait until more information comes out, and then try to bash apple (emphasis on the word “try”). But for now, chill out.

      and a side note, the English language is crying right now because of your terrible grammar and improper usage of words.
