The Google Nexus 10
was just launched last week
and was sold out
before the weekend started. The GT-P8110 is the first Android tablet that can compete with the Retina display on the third
and fourth-generation Apple iPads
. With a 10 inch screen offering resolution of 2560 x 1600, the Google Nexus 10 has a pixel density of 300ppi
compared to the 264ppi on the aforementioned Apple tablets.
PowerBook Medic decided to take the 16GB version of the Google Nexus 10 apart and found it surprisingly easy to do, making the tablet easy to repair. As you might expect, with Samsung manufacturing the tablet, some of the important parts inside were made in-house by the Korean based tech titan such as the battery, processor and the flash memory. Unlike the LTE chip found
on the Google Nexus 4
when that handset was torn down, there are no surprises inside the Google Nexus 10.
The 16GB model is priced at $399
while the 32GB version carries a $499
price tag. Hopefully, the Google Play Store will soon be restocked with inventory of the Google Nexus 10. With that luscious screen and the enticing price, it is going to be hard to keep this tablet in stock.
