A, now removed, listing on Google's Play Store confirms they are about to launch a new flagship tablet device.It's not as though this is a huge surprise, by any stretch, but Google would probably have wished that their new 10-inch tablet hadn't been first shown to the world in this manner. A Phone Arena reader was quick enough to grab screenshots of both the product and the specification pages and it certainly looks like they mean business, following Apple's launch of the iPad Air.
As to be expected, it looks like the new Nexus 10 will run the very latest version of Android (4.4 Kit Kat), which is also set for official announcement later in the week, alongside the Nexus 5. Unlike the recently launched New Nexus 7, the Nexus 10 will be powered along by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, with 3GB of RAM supporting, where the 7 sports a rather ageing, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro.
To the rear promises to be an improved, 8 megapixel camera, whilst front-facing will be a 2.1MP camera intended primari;y for video calling.
According to the specs, the screen actually measures 10.05-inch diagonally, packing a tasty native 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution at 300 ppi. Naturally it comes Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth capable and it should have a very good battery life considering the 9600 mAH capacity
Heavier than 'Air'At a 7.99m depth and weighing in at 584g, the new Nexus 10 is both heavier and thicker than Apple latest tablet but it will be interesting to see how they match up in other areas, particularly price, but the leaked listing displayed no such details.
We'll expect more on this later in the week, along with more details of Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5 smartphone.
