The amount of times Google branded hardware “accidentally” turns up on the Play Store before it’s supposed to you’d be forgiven for thinking that the big G was purposefully leaking it all. And that’s what appears to have happened with the forthcoming Nexus 10 tablet, which had its guts spilled all across the store before being swiftly taken down.
A pinch of salt is required but, if they’re the real deal, the specs are looking pretty good. Keeping the impressive 10-inch 2560 x1600 screen of its predecessor, the 2013 Nexus 10 is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, backed by 3GB of RAM. Round the back is an improved 8MP camera, while the battery is boosted up from 9000mAh to 9500mAh. All this in a form thinner (7.9mm) and lighter (584g) than the previous generation. Android KitKat 4.4, the next generation of Google’s mobile OS is, naturally, also said to feature.
Expected to land on November 1st alongside the hotly-tipped Nexus 5, it could see Google going head to head with Apple and its iPad Air in the full-size tablet stakes. Which would be good enough reason for Google to let slip a few details on the tablet before Apple’s rival hits shelves. [PhoneArena]
