eBay is hosting a sweet little deal on new Nexus 10 tablets, priced at only $369.99 for the 32GB variant. If you were to look on Google Play, you can find the exact device, but listed at a whopping $500. The tablet, in regards to specs and performance, is still a great option for those who like to compare. It features the super high-res 10″ 2560 x 1600 WQXGA display, an Exynos 5 dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP back-facing camera and the ability to have the latest versions of Android running almost as soon as they are released.

Shortly after announcing the new Nexus 7 on stage at a Google event in San Francisco two weeks ago, Android boss Sundar Pichai allegedly told a Wall Street Journal reporter that a new Nexus 10 was also on the way and that Samsung would be making it again. The news didn’t exactly surprise us, since Samsung and Google have had a solid partnership over the years, especially when it comes to the Nexus brand. With that said, a new report out of Geek.com suggests that Samsung may not make the new 10-inch tablet at all, and that Asus, who has made both Nexus 7 tablets for Google, may have actually won the bid.

With yesterday’s announcement of a brand new Nexus 7, but no mention – not even the slightest hint – of a new 10-inch Nexus 10, some larger-tablet fans are getting concerned. But don’t go worrying too much. According to Amir Efranti, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, tweeted that Google’s Sundar Pichai has confirmed a new Nexus 10 is in the works. As head of Android and a few other things at Google, we would say it’s a safe bet that he knows what’s going on. (more…)
And just like that, we’ve got Android 4.3 (JWR66V) factory images already available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (WiFi and HSPA), Nexus 10, and GSM Galaxy Nexus (takju and yakju) variants.
If you don’t want to wait for the OTA to arrive or a .zip to flash, you can always flash factory images in adb. These do wipe your phone though, so keep that in mind.

For the next two days (or until they run out), Woot is selling the 32GB version of the Google Nexus 10 for $380. That’s a heck of a deal. The retail 32GB version of Google’s big-screened tablet runs $499 through Google Play, so even though this is refurbished, you are saving yourselves at least $100. When you compare it to the 16GB version, you are still saving yourself around $20, plus some shipping costs. Shipping on Woot is $5, while Google currently only has a $13 2-day shipping option.
Again, this is refurbished and not brand spankin’ new, though some would argue that refurbished models perform better than new since manufacturers have had a chance to fix issues.
Cheers S McCartney!
It’s hard to pass up a good Groupon sometimes, especially when it focuses on a flagship Android device. Today, they’re offering up a refurbished Nexus 10 32GB for the price of $429.99, down from its list price of $499.99. That’s a total of $70 in discounts, plus on orders of $15 or more (or something like that), shipping is free. Kind of a win/win if buying a refurb’d device doesn’t bother you. (more…)
When the Nexus 7 launched with a combination of low price and decent specs, it was just what Google needed to give Android tablets a good name. When the Nexus 10 launched with one of the best displays in the industry and stock Jelly Bean, it made a good follow up to the Nexus 7, but sales so far haven’t done the same. (more…)
Since the release of Portenzo’s custom bookcases for the Nexus 7 tablet (review here), we have been major fans. Made from high quality materials, Portenzo cases are pretty much the definition of what I look for when I think about protecting or covering up my tablets. Once we heard they were beginning production of bookcases for the Nexus 10, we knew we would be picking one up. (more…)
