It doesn’t really take much time for another Apple rival to come up with competition. With the swift transition from 1 gadget release to another, it doesn’t take much time to get acquainted with your new device, and here comes another upgrade.
Introducing the Nexus 10 and a few of its Specs:
- Exynos 5250 dual-core processor at 1.7GHz
- Mali T604 GPU
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB internal storage
- 10.1″ Super AMOLED display at 2560×1600, or about 300 pixels per square inch.
- 5MP rear camera, with an unidentified front camera
- NFC capability
As stated that it would be 1 of the first few devices to run on the Android 4.2, it is also reported that it would be flaunting a higher resolution than the iPad (third generation)
Price-wise, the Nexus 10 wouldn’t seem to cost anywhere similar to the Nexus 7 that sold at about $199. This time the 10 would most likely be along the priceline of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy note 10.1 (noticeably, 10 is like a favorite number for Samsung due to their 10 inch screens)
At an event scheduled 2 days from now, Google is to debut the new OS 4.2 (apparently, Google didn’t tag a fancy pick up name for this new OS such as previous versions like the Jelly Bean and the Ice Cream Sandwich).
According to an online report, Google is also scheduled to release the following the LG Nexus 4, featuring a quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon processor, 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera (and 1.3-megapixel front-facing snapper) and a 2100mAh battery. They would also be releasing the Nexus 7 32GB variant that will offer HSPA+ (3G) support.
This definitely serves as Google’s way of getting the attention of the market that has recently started staring eagerly at the iPad mini. It seems that these phone giants would stop at nothing to ensure that they maintain a fair share of that market.

Would this mean that anytime in Q1 of 2013, Apple would be planning to whip up a new device? we can’t really say. The way I see it now is that it’s just too difficult to focus on 1 gadget/device just like we used to do back in the good old days where Nokia phones were the only models you’d look forward to. Devices get upgraded nearly every month now, and it’s difficult to invest on a single device without worrying about it being obsolete in the next few days.
