Watch 5 seconds of the Google Nexus 10 in action

Watch 5 seconds of the Google Nexus 10 in action
We have a video for you to see that we know is going to interest you. The great thing is that it won't take that much of your time, only 5 seconds. That is the length of a video on YouTube that shows the beastly Google Nexus 10 tablet in action. We won't see the tablet being introduced on Monday as we had hoped thanks to Hurricane Sandy (aka Frankenstorm), and we doubt that 5 seconds of video will replace seeing the tablet being introduced. Still, until Google reschedules its media event, it is the best that we can offer.

The Google Nexus 10 is built by Samsung and was known internally as "Manta". The 2560 x 1600 resolution on the 10 inch screen brings a 299ppi pixel density to the device which surpasses the 264ppi figure on the third-generation Apple iPad 3. While under the hood is a dual-core 1.7GHz Exynos processor, it is a 5250 which makes it a Cortex A-15 chip that actually outperforms the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. The ARM Mali-T604 GPU also provides outstanding performance. In other words, this is the Android tablet that can compete with the Apple iPad in a different way that those low-priced 7 inch models do.

If you want to check out the Google Nexus 10, grab some popcorn, sit back and click the play button. Don't blink or you might miss it.

I love everything about this tablet, but I'll have to observe the design a bit more. I was a little disappointed when I saw the leaks and it seems to be the set design. Anyway still excited to finally see a good android tablet with a great resolution. Go Samsung and Google!

This is a beast and its gonna rock iPad's world out of orbit! What's striking is its resemblance to the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet which is no surprise as this is built by Sammy! Sammy is going to munch on Apple!

Yeah I was thinking that it looked quite similar to the other Samsung Note and Galaxy Tablets, but I do believe as well that it is one beast of a tablet way better than the ipad and just to think of it having jelly bean with the butter project makes me want to get my hands on it right away!

That's funny. That's very funny.

I think people often take Apple's design as standard and are uncomfortable with designs that do not follow it. Google always have their own style and I like their designs, this Nexus 10 is not an exception: light, thin, premium material and it looks great (the scratchy prototype made it look worse though). But with such high unprecedented resolution, I hope Google Play will have some killer apps for N10 at launch.

you mean premium plastic. If it's made by Samsung, it will be plastic.

You are missing the point here buddy. Design, You mentioned design two times, so i won't dare make the mistake you did... It's all about that EXYNOS 5250 here dude. The fastest, or i should use BEST in all benchmarks. And it only needed to show 5sec worth, to prove a point.

Dual Core Cortex A15 beats Quad Core Krait? You have gotta be bloody kidding me! As for T-604. We will have to wait and watch. But I ""guess"" Adreno 320 will win. BTW, Are 5 secs ""really"" enough to make a decision about performance?

The Krait is also a customized A15, so not it won't be better or faster than a quad core krait.

The Exynos 5250 is 1.7Ghz Dual core, and the 5450 is Quad Core. I'm talking about the EXYNOS 5250 dude... If you want to get into quad cores, his bigger brother will gladly take on your Krait... Really, no kidding! :)

I did mention design twice and I also mentioned that I like everything else about the product. A change in the design would have made it perfect for me.

You still didn't mention the only thing that matters here... EXYNOS 5250... And for the design, I agree with you, hopefully it's not a final. A little less bezel please, but keep the EXYNOS 5250... :)

In simple words "Samsung is kicking Apple's a$$ in every field. No matter whether it is a smartphone, tablet, smart PC or a laptop. Keep it up the good work Sammy..!!

I'd say the back looks like the first Nexus phone design. Maybe it represents a new era for Android tablets (fingers crossed).

Looks great.. Though a bit too glossy for my taste. Can't wait for the official release and more pictures!

The design is still a bit too Samsung-y for my tastes. Specs are great, just they should've picked Motorola or HTC for the manufacturer, Sony even.

The design is not very nice... I prefer the Ipad3 (must say now Ipad4 with A6x)... The Nexus 10 do not look as "cool" as the IPad... Standard users that do not take care of all technical details will also prefere the Ipad if they will see the both tablet in front of them. Only the price can make the difference... but finaly, thing that Ipad sells will beat Nexus 10 (Samsung's tablet do not have big sells... in comparision with Apple"s tablet... so It will be the same with this one)...

I guess I'm the minority here and actually that likes the design. When I had an iPad 2 I always used it landscape. So this will be good. The iPad is a great looking device just a little too square for me. Also glad Samsung kept the front facing speakers from the Note 10.1

I don't think that you are correct when saying that 5250 outperforms S4pro, I used to laugh at people saying that, and thought how ignorant some people are. but when it is said from tech people, this is really sad. the comparison everyone is talking about was between chroombook vs lg optimus G, which isn't reliable because they use different OS and we know chroombook is a lot simpler than android and does basically nothing compared to android, so it is expected that it would score a lot better. I am not saying that the S4 pro is better, but no one can say the opposite until there is android device for each chip for fair comparison. however, when comparing the cpu, I do think that S4pro (quad-core) will defeat 5250 (dual-core) and both use similar design. while t604 might beat adreno 320 gpu, but not by far, again this is expectation and we can't tell until we do fair comparision
