Someone with a Nexus 10 Uploads a Photo to Picasa, Confirms at Least One Camera

During our inaugural Droid Life Show, we discussed the rumors surrounding the Nexus 10 and many readers in chat expressed an interest in the device. Even though we don’t expect to see this ultra-high resolution tablet until next year, evidence today suggests that Samsung and Google are hard at work.  

Picasa has revealed many new devices in it’s history, and someone (rumored to be a Samsung worker) has used it to upload a photo from the Nexus 10. Notice the name “Nexus 10,” camera as “google,” and the software build of JVP12C, a very new build of Jelly Bean. Those signs certainly point to an unreleased Nexus type of device. What other tablets and phones see early builds of Android, this early?

The Nexus 7 only had a front-facing camera to keep costs down, but this photo of a color testing sheet, seems to be shot with a rear-facing one. This assumption, paired with the high res screen that it will allegedly ship with, means Google might be aiming for the high end tablet market with the Nexus 10.

What do you think? What price range would you pay for a super-high res 10″ Nexus tablet?

    Keep it simple Google. Remove the camera and give me an expandable SD Slot and maybe HDMI.

  • Rear cameras on tablets is so 2011.

  • droidbeat

    $599 with 32GB

  • perhaps they will say something at the october 29th event? I’d love to see this released after thanksgiving…for the holidays

    Do people not realize that EXIF data can… and is often faked? This is just one field for the camera name that people are looking at. All you need is some smarts and a binary editor. I used to do this for fun on DSLR forums before the release of a hot new body.

    • I think people do realize this, yes.

    Take my money!!

    Id be down…but with a 10 inch nexus running around, the non optimized apps that the n7 gets away with will have to be addressed. Im hoping that when el goog announces this they bring news of all the developers that will be building specific tablet apps for it. (And other ten inchers would benefit)

    It would go a long ways to proving that nexus devices truly set a standard

  • What’s the point of rear camera on tablets!

    • jeesung

      to capture what’s around you. same as the rear camera on phones 😛

    • scanning documents, reading QR codes, taking pictures of things to show others, taking pictures of slides in a presentation. Just off the top of my head.

    • ckeegan

      I actually scanned and OCR’d a newspaper article on my tablet this morning.

    I think with Google doing this off contract low price thing will inspire others to do as well just like the nexus 7 which would be awesome for us unlimited data customers

    I have a Nexus 7…but, honestly, Android needs more tablet specific apps before I spend more money on another tablet. The screen and other specs can be amazing…but if nothing utilizes it what’s the point?

    • aSystemOverload

      the point could be windowed apps ;o)

    • Nice

      So you bought something you had no reason to buy?

  • $500 for sure

      I am throwing my credit card at the monitor and nothing is happening 🙁

  • 5mp image, eh?

    • the 1/15 shutter speed isn’t very impressive either. Not on something that appears to have room lighting in the first place.

  • bitpimpin

    1 meeellion dollars

  • SchwannyT

    $400-499 and I’m in… day one

    • michael arazan

      I’ll bet it’s only $300-350 bare minimum

  • Mack

    As long as this thing still comes in cheaper than the iPad, it will be a hit. I love my Nexus 7 but if the price is right I definitely wouldn’t mind having a 10″ tablet.
