The ASUS ZenPad Z10 LTE-connected Android tablet is coming to Verizon

U.S. carrier Verizon has added a new exclusive device to its roster, the LTE-A connected ASUS ZenPad Z10 tablet. A nicely spec'd out piece of Android hardware, the ZenPad Z10 features a 9.7-inch, 2K resolution screen and is housed in a metal body. It's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 chipset that features a six-core CPU and the Adreno 510 graphics unit for adequate everyday performance. It also packs 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.

The 2K screen boasts ASUS VisualMaster technology to optimize its properties depending on usage case, automatically choosing the best settings for movie, gaming, and outdoor scenarios. The tablet also boasts dual stereo speakers and DTS-HD support for a better experience when listening to audio with headphones. There are also a pair of cameras – an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front cam. The tablet features an USB Type-C port and runs on a 7800mAh battery.

The ASUS ZenPad Z10 will be available at the carrier's online and physical stores starting October 13. It can be pre-ordered today. The device is available on a monthly payment plan of $13.74 per month for 24 months, or $329.99 full price. Meanwhile, Verizon's LTE Advanced network is available in over 450 cities across the U.S. and offers 50% faster peak wireless data speeds. It also covers less-served places, such as highways, interstates, country roads, and stretches of rural America. This ought to let you make the most out of the ZenPad Z10's cellular connectivity.

They keep releasing android devices with sub par components and wonder why people prefer apple. I tried several android tablets including some cheaper ones and I even tried the Samsung galaxy tab pro 12.2. It lagged, was a pain to use with a 16:9 ratio, and crashed trying to read books on it all the time. I prefer android for phones, but I had to get an ipad for when I want to use a tablet. I was tired of trying android only to be disappointed. This tablet looks to be another device that will only make this whole android tablet mess worse. I have considered the Pixel C, but at this point Google is the only one I'm considering getting any android devices from anymore. Pixel phone seems great, but I'm not paying that much yet. I'm going to wait.

Agree and been honest I'm looking for a tablet but rather go with Windows base tablet so i can just add or just replace it with Remix OS or having dual boot with Win +Remix or Ubuntu.

All my android tablet which includes tab s, pro 12.2, Motorola Xoom are fine. I also have dell 7140 windows tablet, its fine too! So must be user expectations. I accept it for what it is. I only have problem with netbook. 50% cycle with an anti-virus and another 50% cpu cycle on IE running Windows XP. My current tablet computing device is tab s 8.4 running mash mallow 6.1. Its also my second phone.

They never really spec out their tablets for some reason. But do like a 16:9 android for video consumption.
