It will be funny if Google choose Asus to make the Nexus 5.

The problem with the Nexus 10 has been that Samsung didn't distribute it in the countries where the Devices Store was not present because they didn't want to hurt the sales of their (overpriced) tablets, whereas Asus did it and was able to keep an affordable price (though higher than the US price, of course, but equal to the european price of the devices store). This could be one of the reasons why Google could be thinking to ditch Samsung... and I hope they will, because I'd like to see the new Nexus 10 even in my country.

As a current transformer Infinity user, I sincerely hope Asus DOESN'T make the next Nexus 10 or if they do, they don't use the same slow NAND they use in the Infinity. Their NAND choice just cripples my device, making it slow, lagging, uneven performance, etc.on stock. I'm just grateful we have genius' that make custom roms.

i hope it will be on the same standard as the Samsung Gallaxy Nexus 10, which in my opinion was amazing... I dont realy trust ASUS!!

It should be better, look at the nexus 7 if you want an idea of what ASUS can do. My only worry is the battery life, they made the new N7's battery smaller even though it has a higher resolution display and more powerful processor.

Oh god yes please....i would prefer not to own any samsung stuff, but love the current N10. I think having asus make it would be perfect, with their history with kb docks and KLP (rumored) to be more laptop optimized....sounds like a dream. Lets see what you got!

Asus is the best partner for making Nexus Device. They did a better job than Samsung.

I don't trust Asus but they are coming out with a super high res tab for $399.99, so in theory, they can do a $299 Nexus 10 2013.
If Samsung wanted to, they could crush it with a 10 inch tablet the same res as the 13 inch Ativ Q. But it doesn't look like they want to and they don't have any tablets in the pipeline that bests the Nexus 10. So Samsung might have just passed on the new Nexus 10.
