Nexus 10 Launched via Google Partnership with Samsung

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Online search giant Google today rolled out the latest addition to its popular Nexus line in form of the Nexus 10. To create the device, the company partnered with electronics manufacturer Samsung.

Google also referred to the product as the “first truly shareable tablet,” noting the inclusion of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

“With Android 4.2, you can add multiple users and switch between them instantly right from the lockscreen. We believe that everyone should have quick and easy access to their own stuff — email, apps, bookmarks, and more. That way, everyone can have their own home screens, their own music, and even their own high scores,” commented the company through its blog.

Google had planned a launch event. However, it was scrapped due to Hurricane Sandy, a CNET report noted.

Tech specs include a 10.055 inch display featuring 4 million pixels, WiFi compatibility only, a Dual-core A15 processor, 16GB memory and 2 GB RAM. Google released its Nexus 7 for $199 in July. Interestingly enough, that device was made in coordination with Asus. The product has competed with other tablets including Apple’s iPad.
