Nexus 10 16GB and 32GB models sold out at Google Play Store; is the Nexus 10 (2014) on the way?
Back in October, the 16GB Nexus 10 was sold out at the Google Play Store, but the 32GB model continued selling. And selling. And selling. That is, until today when the "Out of inventory" sign was posted. Considering that both variants of the 10 inch Samsung produced slate have been sold out, perhaps we will soon see the long rumored refresh version of the tablet.

There has been some speculation for some time now, that a new version of the Nexus 10 would be coming from the factories belonging to Asus, rather than Samsung. But those rumors also had the new slate being made available in time to capture holiday sales, which obviously did not happen.

Just a month before the Asus rumors started in earnest, Google's own Sundar Pichai told a Wall Street Journal reporter that a Samsung built Nexus 10 was coming in the "near future". It seems that we really have no idea which manufacturer will be producing a Nexus 10 (2014), if indeed such a device is on the way. What we do know for sure, is that right now the Nexus 10 is completely out of stock at Google.

It'd better be good, Google. It will no longer will be a '2013' tablet but will be treated as 2014 model.

Also, because of the delay in launch you've lost the edge and now you've a serious android tablet competitor -> Samsung's Tab Pro

The Tab Pros are still using 2013 specs; Exynos 5420/Snapdragon 800 and 2 GB of RAM with 2560x1600 displays. The Nexus 10 will have the Snapdragon 800 and 2 GB of RAM at the very least.

I wouldn't at all be surprised if the new one *is* Samsung's Tab Pro. Pretty much the same specs as the Note 10 (2014) .. just with less Samsung software. A Nexus 10 would have even less Samsung software, and I'm ok with that. BTW, Totally in the market for one of these..

A Nexus 10 would have no Samsung software, and would most likely conform to the current design philosophy of clean, soft-touch plastic that is embodied in the Nexus 7 and Nexus 5, rather than either the glossy-plastic or fake-leather that Samsung is fond of using. If it were just the Tab Pro 10, it would be a Google Play Edition.

I could definitely see Google going with a Nexus 10 + TabPro 12 GPE approach on the Play Store.

I think it will be another Samsung (I hope).

Would make sense if Google launch 2014 model with Tegra K1 (Denver) and Android 5 :)

For time being, GPE of Samsung Tab Pro is adequate replacement.

I want the new Nexus 10 to be fitted with Tegra K1.
