Google Nexus 10 tablet confirmed by photo on Picasa
Surprise, surprise! We seem to have evidence confirming the existence of a 10-inch Nexus tablet, rumored to be known as the Nexus 10. The evidence comes in the form of a photo found on Picasa. The image itself may be nothing worthy of admiration, but what's interesting about it is that according to the EXIF data, it was captured on October 15 using a Google Nexus 10 device. The size of the photo also suggests that the tablet, if real, might have a 5-megapixel main camera.

While the Google Nexus 7 is actually manufactured by Asus, rumor has it that for the Nexus 10, Google has partnered up with Samsung. It is also speculated that the device will come with a screen that surpasses the pixel density of the new iPad's Retina display – a screen with a resolution of 2,560 by 1,600 pixels, which results in a whopping pixel density of 299 ppi. For a 10.1-inch tablet, that is a lot!

However, it's still early to get your credit card ready as the rumored Google Nexus 10 tablet is supposedly scheduled to debut in 2013. But if the hardware specs that are being attached to its name turn out to be correct, the wait might actually be worth it.

Thanks for sending this in!

No Nexus by SS was successful, and Sony has better camera and screen technology. Sony's design skill is much better than SS too.

SS is very successful with their own phones but not with Nexus S and GNex.

Sony may be a good tablet partner if they are trying to make a $400 tablet, but in order to keep costs down low they need to go with Samsung. Remember, this is suppose to be a $300 (give or take) tablet. Samsung is the ideal choice for making an excellent tablet while keeping costs minimal since everything they need to build a tablet can be done in house. Samsung makes their own chipsets, their own screens, their own cameras, and pretty much everything else that goes into a tablet. Sony doesn't make any real chipsets besides those they put in their low to mid-range phones. I'm not quite sure if Sony makes all of its display panels on their own or if its through a joint venture of some kind. If it's a joint venture, it could mean that some of the costs go to the other manufacturer. In that case, it would mean possibly a higher cost than if Sony were to do it on their own (again I don't really know for sure on that one).

I will say that I do agree that Sony does make good high-end cameras, but the costs for those high-end cameras would put it out of the price range I have mentioned. Perhaps in the future we will see a Sony Nexus tablet.

Now, as far as design goes, you also have to remember that the ASUS Nexus 7 was co-developed WITH Google. That's why the design is a little different than the regular 7 inch tablet that the Nexus 7 is based off of. I would imagine that the Google team is also working with Samsung from start to finish on this device. So, the design will most likely be co-developed with the Google team.

Things do not work out that way, I don't think SS wants to make a great tablet with low cost to compete with their own high price low res tablets.

I think Google has the experience from Nexus 7 and knows how to keep cost down. Sony will offer great hardware design while Google will take care of software and marketing.

I agree that Asus can be a great partner too but their 10" tablets are doing pretty well so they may have less incentive to make things that beat those tablets out of water.

I can almost guarantee you that if indeed the Nexus 10 tablet is a true rumor, it WILL be priced under $500. So, if Samsung or Sony was the chosen partner, they would have to create a tablet that would inevitably be priced below what they have already made. Why? Because, historically, Android tablets have not been able to compete with the iPad on it's pricing scale. That's not to say that the Android tablets are not good enough to be priced at $500, but it's just that the market and consumers are choosing to go with the iPad over any other Android tablet for that price. That is why Google will most likely want to create a $300-$350 Nexus 10 tablet (it could go up to $400 at most). If you offer features that beat the iPad at a cheaper price range, then consumers will be more tempted to buy it over the more expensive iPad. I think they will do like what they did with the Nexus 7 and pretty much sell it for almost the same price it costs to build it.

I'm not saying that Google may not produce a $500 Nexus 10 tablet, but if they chose to do that then they must have really thought this one out. I mean you have to think of how you can out market the iPad and the new Surface tablet. Right now, I think the 10 inch tablet market is congested at the $500 price range, which is what also makes me think that Google will want to offer a better alternative in terms of hardware and price (exactly like the Nexus 7 was).

There is, however, a mystery 11.6 inch Samsung device that was rumored to be released later this year. Who knows? It could turn out to be a Nexus device.

I don't think Asus would have interest in selling 2 10.1 tablets at the same time, would they? The infinity should still be out for a while shouldn't it?

2560x1920 is the camera resolution. 2560x1600 is the screen resolution. Two different things.

That's gotta be a mistake. That would be a really wonky aspect ratio.
