Google Nexus 10 rumored for the fall, might cost just $300 for the 16GB version
After our own editor speculated immediately when the Nexus 7 was announced that the naming scheme presupposes a Nexus 10 in the works too, we got a semi-confirmation from Digitimes that the search giant has ordered a bunch of 10" panels from Wintek and others for a larger tablet.

Now MyDrivers, the guys who yesterday spilled the beans on an iPad Mini, confirmed right away by a Bloomberg publications, say that a Nexus 10 is coming in the fall, possibly alongside a new Nexus phone, and give more details.

Google's eventual 10" tablet is apparently going to come in 16GB and 32GB flavors, but that doesn't mean it will be much more expensive than the Nexus 7. In fact, the 16GB version is said to cost only $50 more than its 7" equivalent. 

At $300, and with the Tegra 3 quad-core chip tipped to be in the 10-incher as well, Google's Nexus tablets seem poised to occupy quite a few homes, and give their app ecosystem the much needed boost, which is precisely Google's goal with those affordable fondleslabs.

Actually I don't think much about rear cam.. MicroSD is required.

Micro SD is more important, but of course having a rear camera is better than nothing right? :)

Rear Cam and an SD is required, as with an HD screen and good processor. because ipad users will boast about the ipad's camera, retina display and fluidity. we should have Jellybean, etc etc.

I actually don't want to pay extra for a camera on a tablet. I always have my phone on me. I also don't need an SD card slot since most of my media is cloud based. If I'm going on a plane ride I'll just pull it down to my internal storage. This tablet will fit my needs exactly. Key part because being the great processor and the killer price.

Just launch a Nexus 7 with a SD card and that would be a big win as it just costs a few bucks for companies to put a SD card in a device and after that just up the price a bit After then the Nexus 7 will sell like hot cakes..!!

if it has an HDMI, it will be my tablet upgrade without a doubt unless W8 shows something spectacular in that price range.

Hopefully they don't sacrifice screen resolution to reduce the price. Would love to have this, but only if they include an HD screen, otherwise I might go to the Transformer Infinity series

about time a company stepped up and righted the wrong that apple created.. $500-800 for tabs that cost $200 to make.. yes, the original iPad had $229 in parts ( -only-229-to-produce ), did not need a $500-800 price tab starting this over priced tab market we have today. Tabs at $99-299 will blow the tab market wide open and of course we have Google/Amazon to thank and as usual no thanks to apple and their huge profit margins. Amazon, Google realize that even if they sell it at cost, they blow it wide open with all the services they reap rewards from... This is why Apple is the king of all profit, because they don't care about anything other than huge profit margins, even would it would benefit them to lower the hardware price and sell the crap out of their services. Hell if OG iPad was $249 we'd all own one but now, who cares about iPad when other tabs have better specs and better values.

Well to be fair, the Ipads cost more to make now. I think I remember reading it was about $335 to make the new ipad 16gb model. That said, still a pretty nice profit on the device, but nto as much as they were getting.
