Leaked Samsung Nexus 10 Users Manual shows tablet's design
Google Nexus 7 tablet and has a strip made of metal or plastic on top with openings for the rear camera lens and for the flash. A diagram of the device shows the volume rocker is on the top left next to the power button with the charging port on the bottom. There is both a front and rear camera with an LED notification light below the screen.
Of course, we would expect to see this slate be powered by Android 4.2 which is also rumored to be unveiled on Monday. One of the features of the higher OS build is Multiple User Accounts which allows separate users to use a tablet with their own apps, themes and settings. The same feature is found on the Microsoft Surface RT tablet set to launch tomorrow.

Meanwhile, in a parallel universe, Apple has the best device with the iPhone S 3, with real innovations and customization, and Samsung has a closed and controlled OS on their Galaxy 5.

The Nexus space is heating up and its only going to get more exciting till Google's event!
The nexus 10 looks sweeter by the minute and multiple nexus devices by the different manufacturers just sweeten the pot even more!
Talking of sweet...Key Lime Pie is on the way...I just LOVE Pies :)

I wonder how could Google improve Jellybean. It's like years ahead of its time.
anyway, i think I'm liking what I'm seeing. Samsung tablets suck - regardless of hardware - because TouchWiz for tablets just suck big time. also, updates are slow. This might be it!
it will be so hard to choose just one! Nexus 4 or Nexus 10? or if it's true, Nexus 5?
so little money. international give away PA? :)

The Kindle Fire HD, iPad mini, iPad specs bump and today Windows 8... Android is so dead in the tablet space, even before they had 9 pitiful percent internet usage traffic and not even Apple's market share with all Android OEMs combined... Its the end.

Says the person who believes he is now a market researcher. We still don't know what the real specifications of this device is, the price, or how it will be marketed. So, I don't think you can make a basis for any statement on how well the device will fair in the marketplace until you know what all the device has to offer, it's price, and how Google will market it.

If Android is dead, then consider it a zombie invasion as Apple's tablet market share dropped to 52%.

You can't trust iBGR. Literally every single article on their site is Apple related. They're the biggest sheep I've ever seen in my life.
57. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2693; Member since: 26 May 2011)
Not going to argue that BGR tends to have an Apple bias, but remember, BGR was the site that got all the exclusive leaks about the Galaxy Nexus last year.

Those are the same guys that swore that the gs3 was going to have 1920x1080. They lie just to make ad revenue.
54. protozeloz (Posts: 5381; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
That's BS and is freaking old
Here are much fresh numbers
19. Sniggly (Posts: 7183; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
The Nexus 7 is also the best selling tablet in the UK.
And if Best Buy gets ahold of the Nexus tablets, you better believe s**t will get real here in the US.
35. Synack (Posts: 669; Member since: 05 Jul 2011)
True, but nobody buys stuff from Best Buy....
40. XPERIA-KNIGHT (unregistered)
LOL people just go in there and look around right?
69. Aeires (unregistered)
Lol. Best Buy, the company that drove Circuit City out of business by not selling anything. Hanging out at the mall is so yesterday, now everyone just hangs out at Best Buy, without buying anything.
44. Sniggly (Posts: 7183; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
I beg to differ. Best Buy is the only remaining major electronics chain in the US. It's only been in the past year that it's started posting a loss, and frankly the dead weight mainly comes from appliances and such. Computers and mobile devices still sell really damn well, even in my crappy ass slow location.
51. Rydsmith (Posts: 198; Member since: 20 Jun 2012)
I'm sorry but Synack is correct.
There is a reason they are borderline bankrupt.
62. imkyle (Posts: 1023; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)
Also every Best Buy near me got 2 stars or below out of 5 for a rating.
58. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2693; Member since: 26 May 2011)
Best selling Android tablet in the UK, not the best selling tablet overall.
29. PhenomFaz (Posts: 1104; Member since: 26 Sep 2012)
dude get your facts right!
where do you cough uo this garbage from?...never mind I dont wanna know
47. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4109; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Well, the Kindle Fire runs Android (though a heavily customized mock-Android) so it isn't completely dead. Android hasn't had much luck in the tablet market, and they probably never will have much of a hold of it; but you can't deny that at least some of the Android tablets are very good options in terms of quality. Market share isn't everything when comparing devices. Popularity does not equal quality.
5. Dr.Phil (Posts: 937; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
The design looks very nice. They took some cues from the Galaxy Nexus and put it into a larger form. It also looks like it will be really thin, at least by the pictures in the manual. The stereo speakers also look a bit larger than the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 2, which is always welcome. Finally, the one thing that I believe everyone will like is the LED notification. Looks like a good Christmas present!

Docking keyboard station that has a battery in it like Asus does?
10. protozeloz (Posts: 5381; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
That's means the device exist at last, and announcement may be inevitable, now I wonder if it will bring something new to the table
14. bigstrudel (Posts: 518; Member since: 20 Aug 2012)
Should very gone with Asus. They managed to make a cheap device in the Nexus 7 perform like a champ and have a great feel and look. Samsung refuses to use anything more premium than glossy plastic even on their highest priced items.
16. Commentator (Posts: 2513; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
300 PPI is Retina territory if you hold your 10 inch tablet 10 inches from your face. The new iPad doesn't come close to 300 PPI, and yet it's claimed to have a Retina display. The Nexus 10 will blow past Retina territory, in the same way the HTC DLX's 1080p screen will blow past Retina territory on phones.
21. CreeDiddy (Posts: 350; Member since: 04 Nov 2011)
Do a study for me....
Look at a 720p display on the same channel and receiver and then look at a 1080p display on the same channel and receiver. You will get nearly an identical picture. Why? Is because the source or broadcast is not optimized to maximize 1080p signal.
What this means is that the apps written for the iPad will look better than the Android tablet apps. Developers have already take advantage of the resolution provided in iPad 3. Where as the highest table available I believe for Android was 1280 x 800.
Regardless of 300ppi vs 260ppi, Apple still has the advantage.
23. squallz506 (banned) (Posts: 1075; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
Maybe apple still has higher resolution apps. But not all media is an app. Video, pictures and web browsing will all look much better on the nexus 10 than on the newest new ipad.
32. CreeDiddy (Posts: 350; Member since: 04 Nov 2011)
The fundamental understanding of great picture quality comes from the source. So if you watch a crappy youtube video, it will still look crappy. If you view a blurry photo without image stabilization on an iPad 4 or Nexus 10, it still will look bad. The point is having high resolution and ppi is a great thing, however, without any development on apps (the source) is pointless of producing a high res display that can't take advantage and maximize the viewing experience.
36. Commentator (Posts: 2513; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
Android will have the objective advantage in resolution because it offers more pixels, plain and simple. Sure, Apple may have more HD apps, but that doesn't limit Android developers to not making higher res apps.
48. CreeDiddy (Posts: 350; Member since: 04 Nov 2011)
the question becomes, how many optimized Android apps vs. Apple apps. You haven't seen the number come out for Android tablet apps, because the number is ugly. It less than probably 30,000. Out of the 275,000 apps for the iPad, I bet most of the HD apps, must be about half of that number.
So its a question of having the highest resolution with average app development or good resolution with the best apps available that are optimized.
50. Commentator (Posts: 2513; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
Well that's the age-old Android-iOS debate isn't it? Android has the better specs but iOS has the better apps and. This debate has gone on since the introduction of Android.
52. CreeDiddy (Posts: 350; Member since: 04 Nov 2011)
It's true. Two different approaches.
Apple took the time to have developers rewrite two apps within their SDK that are optimized for two different purposes. One for the phone and one for the tablet.
Android takes the approach of scaling the apps to the resolution of the phone and tablet without diminishing the quality.
Which approach is better. That is your choice. However, you can see more time goes into the app development for Apple as it shows in their quality.
55. squallz506 (banned) (Posts: 1075; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
there is enough high resolution "source" out there to give the nexus 10 a huge edge over the newest new ipad. its this new thing called the internet. text will be sharper, more info will fit on each page, less scrolling will be needed, and the zoom animations will be more fluid.
18. CreeDiddy (Posts: 350; Member since: 04 Nov 2011)
Based on the diagram of tablet it looks like the Samsung Tab. If this unit is priced at $399 it could be a killer in the market. If priced at $499 it won't do well against the ipad, regardless of having the highest resolution more storage at the price of the 16GB model iPad. You won't be able to tell the difference in resolution against the Nexus 10 vs. iPad 4. Everything will be based on the apps written that will take advantage of the retina display. I find the Android tablets a waste of time as the apps are far less than iPad and aren't written to take advantage of the high resolution. Apple's approach is much better.
With this tablet releasing shortly, this is an example of Apple besting this resolution on the 5th Generation iPad. I think Apple is now becoming more aggressive with their product cycles on keeping their products exciting for people to buy them. It's not so much tons of features, but the quality of the product.

Because scratched new products, purple halo cameras, yellow screens, nonreplaceable batteries and inaccurate maps are quality products. O i forgot the new lightning connector. That's quality.
High price does not equal quality.
38. CreeDiddy (Posts: 350; Member since: 04 Nov 2011)
scratched new products - all products provide wear over time. I bet your smartphone and tablet are in cases. Right? No need to worry about the coating on the back of the new iPhone and iPad's then.
purple halo cameras - This is a function of the lens being used. Anytime you reflect it in the light at a certain angle you will see it. Is it a big deal. No.
yellow screens - Have you looked at the SIII screen in comparison to the iPhone 5? Big difference in terms of brightness and color rendition. What you are referring to is the temperature/tint of the display, where it be 4500k, 6500k, etc...This is not a function of display. It was Apple's approach on creating a fixed temp settting. Optimally if set at 6500k this is most comfortable for most viewing experience. Lower temp = yellowish tint, higher temp = bluish tint.
nonreplaceable batteries - when is the last time you changed your battery? I prefer not to remove the battery. That goes to show you if the phone locks up (especially on older Android phones) you would remove and reapply the battery to reboot. I've had no issues with the 4 and 5. Plus the battery life is very good on the 5. No need for me to get a replacement and spend more money.
inaccurate maps - Come on. We are talking about the 1st version of Apple Maps with many revisions to follow. Apple's support for Maps will be greatest importance of any of their apps. If Tim Cook wrote to the public his faults in the maps application it will surely get done right. Give it time.
lightning connector - charges nearly 30-40% faster than the older connector. The technology implemented will pay off. Cable costs will come down over time.

definitely a fan boy here......need we remind you how lame IOS is?
49. CreeDiddy (Posts: 350; Member since: 04 Nov 2011)
Name points on why Android is better. Don't start with open source. Most people don't root their devices. Android has better notification system, toggles, and widget system. The apps aren't developed that great with Android in comparison to iOS apps. iOS does everything I need it do and that goes by saying, control's all DirecTV receivers throughout my house, play Spotify with Airplay on my receiver, stream bootleg movies through my iPhone with Airplay to Apple TV, and control my Onkyo receiver throughout my network. Android can do the same thing, but not as effective. DLNA is a poor man's version of Airplay.
Need I remind of what I have had throughout 3 years:
BB Storm, Droid 1, HTC Thunderbolt, Droid Bionic, iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPad 2, 2 HP TouchPad's, and now iPhone 5.

how about when my s3's battery no longer holds a charge i can give it new life with an $8 new battery.
how about microsd?
how about gorilla glass?
how about a universal charging cable?
USB host functionality?
a user accessible file system? WHOA ios still doesnt have one?
best of all, the freedom to choose from over 500 devices on every mobile carrier.
