Leak points to an Asus-made Nexus 10 and possible pricing
posted by Michael H. / Sep 19, 2013, 1:18 AM
The original Nexus 10 was priced at £319 for the 16GB model and £389 for the 32GB model when it was first launched. So, we're hoping the price listed for the new Nexus 10 would be for the 32GB. The new Nexus 10 is expected to be announced next month, but we expect to see more leaks before then. Android 4.4 KitKat has been rumored to include laptop optimizations, which would work well on an Asus-made device if it is based on the Transformer Infinity and has an optional keyboard dock.

Oh man, if Google can make LG and Asus partner together to make the Nexus 5 and a Nexus 10 dock Padfone style, that would be amazing. The Nexus 10 dock could even have added memory into it, so you could have a Nexus 5 with 16/32 GB of storage for all your regular apps and pictures, and have your Nexus 10 dock with 32/64/128 GB of storage dedicated to large games and movies to enjoy on a 10" 2560x1600 display.

Asus deserves to be rewarded for its reliability and professionalism in handling the Nexus 7. They made it available even where the Play Store was not yet available (e.g. here in Italy) at an honest price. While Samsung considered the Nexus 10 a sort of burden, and deliberately chose not to import it where the Play Store was not available to protect their own tablet sales, Asus considered the Nexus 7 an opportunity and they were committed to promoting and selling the nexus 7 even outside the play store. So this would be a welcome change in my opinion, and I would understand if Google prefers to partner with Asus than with Samsung.

Oh man, i have been waiting to hear about this tablet. I skipped on the first version but got a chance to use it thanks to one of my friends. Can't wait to hear more details. Now if only the Nexus 5 worked on Verizon, these two devices would be the perfect combo for me.

Asus kind of sucks though. The first Nexus 7 had loads of problems and my work laptop is already cracking at the plastic hinge. My new Nexus 7 is so far so good though so hopefully they turned it around. The Taiwanese love to skimp on quality control though if Asus and HTC are their two superstars. While LG and Samsung nailed their nexi first shot. Anyways, I won't be upgrading my Nexus 10 regardless but let's hope Google knows what they are doing if they choose Asus again.

If the price will be the same when it released and I will definitely buy it. Have been avoid to buy a 10" tablet, since the price is too high and been waiting for right price with nice spec. Only bad is it didnt come with Exynos 5420 instead for 5250.
