16GB Google Nexus 10 now "out of inventory" on Google Play

When it comes to Nexus devices, the majority of the buzz is always around the Nexus smartphones and the Nexus 7, and the Nexus 10 tends to get lost in the shuffle. Last night, we saw the first leaked press image of what appears to be the Nexus 10 (2013); and today we noticed that the 16GB Google Nexus 10 is now being listed as "out of inventory" on Google Play, although the 32GB model is still available. 

We have to admit that we don't know exactly when this happened. We haven't seen any reports about this, so it seems like a recent event. But, it is widely expected that Google will announce a new Nexus 10 along with the Nexus 5 sometime very soon (possibly within the next week). There hasn't been a lot of info around the new Nexus 10, but it is said to be made by Asus rather than Samsung. Samsung made last year's Nexus 10, and Asus has been responsible for both last year's and this year's Nexus 7 tablets. 

The rumors have said that the new Nexus 10 will retain the same 2560 x 1600 10.1-inch display, but the internals are still a mystery though some have said it would be a Tegra 4, and some say it will be powered by a Snapdragon 800. Additionally,  if the press render is to be believed, it looks as though Google is pushing for the device to be used more in portrait mode rather than Android's traditional landscape mode for larger tablets. Not only is the press render oriented for portrait, but it shows the front camera placed on a short edge, rather than the longer edge of the tablet.

I'm pretty sure it's going to be a Tegra4 if ASUS will manufacture it. Anyway, so looking forward to Nexus10 2013. My Nexus7 is starting to feel small lol

Wait you already have the nexus 7 2013, why get the 10 then? You getting it for the bigger higher res screen or for the processor? Me personally I have the n7 2013 model and as much as I can't wait for the n10 I won't get it or need it as I have a tablet already. But maybe you just like getting the latest tech. After all its your money and decision at the end of the Day!

I have the 2012 version buddy. And I like taking this on trips, fits nicely in my small sling bag. But I want another stay-at-home or long-travel-time tab for watching videos, playing some time-killers, etc. It doesn't help that my wife got a 9.7 incher lol

Asus also made this years Nexus 7 and that came with a Snapdragon S4 Pro. Either one is a possibility, but I'd lean toward another QC processor.

ASUS may manufacture the device, but it is Google that basically decides what goes into the tablet. A lot of it depends on the ratio of performance to price. If nVidia could give ASUS the Tegra 4 for a cheaper price than the Snapdragon 800, then it's very possible that they would choose the Tegra 4 as the chipset. However, if the Tegra 4 is more expensive than the Snapdragon 800, then Google will most likely select the 800.

FYI. I was looking at the Nexus 10 page yesterday when the Ebay deal popped up (32GB for $350) and I can confirm that both were in stock yesterday afternoon in the Google Play store. It's a very recent change.

350 shipped for the current nexus 10 was just too good to pass up. Besides, I've been burned before on Asus tegra-based tablets.

Not just out of stock. It now says "This device is not for sale at this time.". Is that because I'm from India or does it say that for you guys too?

In the United States it says "We are out of inventory. Please check back soon."

Google don't care too much about the hardware sales they like amazon want you to join the ecosystem by buying apps, movies, books etc that and the ad revenue too!
