Even though Google had to cancel its press event today, the company went ahead and announced the Nexus 10, which is going to debut running Android 4.2.
The original Nexus tablet that debuted over the summer has a 7-inch screen, but the next model will be a larger option: a 10.1-inch display with a 2560-by-1600 pixel (300ppi) resolution.
It is going to be made by Samsung, and run the latest version of Google’s mobile OS on a dual-core 1.7GHz Samsung Exynos chipset, with 2GB of RAM.
Google touts the Nexus 10’s shareablity. Thanks to Android 4.2, it will be ablet handle multiple users, and switch between them from the lockscreen.
This device is going to come with a powerful battery good for up to 9 hours of video playback or more than 500 hours of standby time. Other features will include NFC and a 5-megapixel camera
