Google might be prepping a Nexus 10 as well, supply chain sources indicate
We speculated the other day that the Nexus 7 naming of the first Google tablet might not be coincidental, and the folks from Mountain View could be prepping the ground for a Nexus 10 down the road as well.

Now those "supply chain sources" indicate that there might be some truth to this speculation after all. Wintek is reportedly shipping half a million one-glass panels for the Google Nexus 7 now, with the rest of the shipments coming from TPK Holding.

Here the plot thickens, though, with the sources casually mentioning that Wintek will also be supplying 10" panels for another Nexus tablet, making it the largest Google supplier of slate displays. The rest of the 10-inchers are said to come from AU Optronics. 

Wintek apparently has a 3 million capacity for those medium size OGS panels, so we are wondering if Google is just playing around with a Nexus 10 idea, testing prototypes, or it has already been designed, and we will see a Nexus 10 sometime this year as well. If the price is right, it will go directly against Amazon's plans for a larger Kindle Fire.
