Google+ head teases Nexus 10: here are the first sample pictures
The Nexus 10 is all but confirmed - the manual for the upcoming tablet made by Google and Samsung leaked out, and now we have no other than the head of Google Plus, Vic Gundotra, show us his exotic travels, captured on the camera of a Nexus 10.

The Nexus 10 is listed as the device Gundotra used to capture the beautiful ocean shores, and we don’t think someone like the Google+ chief would go on to tweak the information about those photos. Rather, it’s a teaser, something to keep us excited about this upcoming device.

And there is plenty to be excited about. The images are listed as being 2048 x 1536 pixels in size, which would translate into 3.1 megapixels. This could turn out to be the camera on the new Nexus 10, but it seems more likely that the still were downsized, and the resolution could be even higher.

What’s most important is the images themselves, with punchy, vivid colors. They look great for the most part, especially for a tablet, and especially for those who like those punchy colors that seem a bit too good to be true to reality. But hey, Gundotra most likely used HDR and could have added some filters to spice things up!

Google is expected to hit us with a 4, 7, 10 triple punch on Monday, all flavored with the Nexus logo. And while we know most about the Nexus 4 and 7, the camera of the 10 incher seems like one missing piece of the puzzle that has just been unveiled. Don't forget to also check out our new fullscreen feature in the gallery below!

3 megapixels for a camera looks Samsung to me, however for a premium tablet? put the s3 camera in there and make it capable of calling through 2G, I'm in!

I'm crazy. I know.

Pics look good. It won't do well if pricing is at the same as the iPad 4th Gen. Also Google is canabilizing other manufacturer's tablet sales. That is why I believe Google is doing a disservice of providing their own products and competing against their own market. It's part of the same Android pie, but takes away sales from high profile Android companies.

you do realize that the Nexus 10 is made by Samsung and is made with Samsung's super mega high end Exynos 5 chip that's not even in phones right? How does that make it so google is cannibalizing sales of their big android companies? Samsung IS the big android company. The nexus 7 is made by Asus which is the 2nd biggest android tablet company.

The only thing Google is doing is providing customers with a direct update tablet at a generally low pricepoint. However, these tablets generally lack some of the features of the "prime" tablets like the Note 10.1 or Transformer so they dont "cannibalize" sales of the higher profit margin devices.

..and if you are curious about expert reviews, just Google it and read on.
Nexus 7 was met with an universal critical acclaim, and is probably the most praised tablet yet

Oh the irony..
I gave you the largest site with confirmed purchase reviews, but being a stupid troll you are, you obviously missed that.

Also, if you had a bit of brains and objectivity you'd listen to my advice above and do your own research.
But again, you obviously don't have any of it

A seven inch cheap tablet is nothing compared to the king so GTFO. It like comparing a mouse to the beast.

Yea, the nexus 7 for just 250 16 of storage it is very than any apple tablets. The only problem with the nexus 7 it is the sound they put weak sound to make the price reasonable. I pad mini copied Motorola with the bezeless design lol
