Nexus 10 status changes to "coming soon" in Google Play

Nexus 10 status changes to "coming soon" in Google Play
There have been quite a few rumors around the Google Nexus 10, because many analysts and consumers have been expecting/hoping a new version of the tablet would be on the way, but it doesn't seem as though Google is listening to that plan. The Nexus 10 disappeared from the Google Play Store back in October and hasn't been heard from since, until now.

There is still no definitive word on what to expect, but the Google Play listing for the Nexus 10 has finally changed from "out of inventory" to "coming soon". There's no real way to know when the tablet will be back on sale, but it does seem to indicate that there may not be a new version of the Nexus 10 coming out soon. Nothing else on the page would even indicate that there is a refreshed version of the Nexus 10 coming. It looks to be the same tablet that we all know. 

It's not out of the realm of possibility that Google would release a completely new Nexus 10 soon; but, at the same time, we can't discount the possibility that this change will end up meaning nothing at all. At the very least, we'll be keeping an eye on the Nexus 10 listing, because the best case scenario is that we'll be getting a new Nexus 10.

If it's not a new Nexus 10, at least give it a price drop.

The Nexus 10 sucks. Been waiting forever for Google to come out with a good 10 inch tab

Alright then it's time to sell my iPad 3 and say goodbye to iOS forever.

Eh, might want to wait a few months after the release, that way all the kinks will be worked out before you buy (last time around a vocal minority had serious screen problems, battery issues, etc).

It's been like this on the Canadian website for ages. I don't think it means much.

Google didnt give equal love to nexus 10 lol it was treated like a step son. They focused more on nexus 7 and nexus 5.

Well, the old Nexus 10 sure wouldn't mind an updated processor and such...

Yep. Especially since the current model doesn't support transparent buttons (from what I gather from posts in forums, it's due to the GPU's lack of power/new drivers).

Yeah, it's getting a little outdated, I guess.

It should also be noted that pic of the N10 shows a different background than before, and the status icons are white, signifying Kit Kat. Adding "coming soon" and a new photo of the N10 was definitely not a mistake
