10" device. Personally, won't touch it. Will stick with N7 and N4.

Hear with ya. I really don't use my Prime anymore. 10 inch factor just isn't for me.
Specs look amazing though. Best of luck to all of those who get one.

Wow, you guys almost make me change my mind.






I've considered getting a 15" Win 8 slate. If it was out already I might, but it's about 3 times what the Nexus 10 is.

My only complaint with the new Nexus devices is the lack of LTE. It's just my opinion, but it's a huge mistake. HSPA+ is a great technology but here in the US LTE is the 'norm'.

I understand that had they included LTE the devices would have been at least $100 more expensive but even in saying that it would have been nice if we had options. HSPA+ GSM Version & LTE CDMA Version.

Even Apple is bowing to the LTE Overlords now. Have I said LTE enough? lol LTE

I've been waiting on buying a Tablet for a long time now. I'm 80% on board with the Nexus 10 at this point. I cannot see myself spending $100 more for an iPad 4 just to get less. The Tablet specific Apps are a big draw for the iPad though.

Nexus 7 was a great success, bring on the Nexus 10!!

Do you think you would be able to connect it to a projector?

Had been toying with the idea of a Nexus 7 for a while but decided it wasn't big enough so was waiting to see if infinity would come down in price but not yet. So now it looks like the Nexus 10 fits the bill for me. Bring on Nov 13th.

I'm considering selling my Asus Infinity for this. It is a little pricy, but it's exactly what I wanted in a tablet (and I just settled for the Infinity at the time), sans a keyboard dock. If it gets a keyboard dock like the Infinity, then I'll probably try selling.

Very excited about getting this tablet! I bought the Asus TF101 because majority of the buyers seemed happy with Asus. Then all the sudden they came out with newer models and abandoned the TF101. Also have the SGN and love the constant updates. I will only buy Nexus devices for now on!

I can't decide either. I haven't come close to filling up a 16gb device. I'm not one to hoard things I don't use anymore. I've only used 6gb space on my Galaxy S2. That's about 80 apps plus 4 nandroids and assorted other files that I could just as easily store on my laptop or to the cloud.

On the other hand, I don't often have $500 to throw around and this tablet will have to last a while. I will probably have more games on it and who knows how large they may be optimized for this tablet. I would rather be future-proofed and have too much space than not enough so I'm leaning to the 32gb model.

I'm only considering the 32GB model. Cloud storage is great until you don't have access at some point. If there were a 64GB model, I probably consider that one instead. Even though I've never come close to filling up my 32GB Prime (sans movies which I keep on SD card).

Yeah on my Evo3D I have 12GB of available total space and 6.22gb Available still. Considering the OS itself is, what, 5gb? I don't use a lot lol...

I play games, browse the web. I know I would play more games on the Tablet, but even then, 16gb would probably be plenty for me. I think.

There's always that doubt, ya know? Like I will fill the 16gb and then regret not getting the 32gb.

I'm going all in on the 32gb model. With just internal memory on my TF101 I'm unable to back up my ROM because um out of space. It's all the games that fill it up. I've had delete several that are over 1GB just to make room.

Yeah. 10" is a bit small, but I'll have to deal.

Personally this is a couch tablet for me and I have a linux server with all my media so I'd take a 8gb version if they offered it.

Can someone give me an idea of the probable price for the 32GB in GBP & in laymans terms how it compares to the N7 as far as the CPU/GPU is concerned.

Thanks.

Never mind, just checked out Google Play.. what's the consensus here for the 389 price tag

Hi Twayne.

I haven't seen any info on docks yet. I would expect Google or Samsung to have one soon.

You would expect that, but given their track record with the GNex accessories I'm not hopeful!

Ahhhhh!! What to do? I work for a company (that I won't name just incase) that sells limited range of electricals. We stock the Nexus 7 but no word on whether we'll have the Nexus 10 any time soon. From yesterday we have reduced the price of the Galaxy Note 10.1 down to 320. This has brought it down to same price as Google are advertising the 16gb version of the Nexus. Also Samsung UK are offering 50 cashback on the Note bringing it down further to 270.

Note or Nexus. 50 cheaper and available now or 50 more but have to wait.

Do you know for sure Walmart will have it Tuesday? I went to 2 Saturday and I don't think the people I talked to even knew what a Nexus 10 was. Although I think they were just part-time people and probably not in the loop.

I have no faith in Walmart to put them out on time even if they have them. I live within 20 minutes of four and all of them are unreliable. I plan to stop by Staples just to check tomorrow. They sell the Nexus 7 so I'm hoping they will also have the 10.

And the reason I have no faith in them is because at one time my wife was a Microsoft Xbox rep for our area. They never managed to get any of the new games or displays setup on time. She always ended up having to do their jobs and all but threaten to get the displays put up.

Well Walmart might prove me wrong this time. My wife went into the store close to where she works and.... they do have them in stock and will be available tomorrow! I just might have to take a day off of work!

Well as they work at Walmart, I dont expect much foresight out of any of them. I guess I'll find out in a few hours.

According to press releases, the N10 will be available online from Google or at Walmart at release. That's it. Hope it's wrong.

FYI. Just talked to the Google Play Store (855-836-3987). He asked me what city I was from (Fresno, CA) they said the Nexus 10 would be available for purchase at 9 am Pacific Time today.

I hope you expressed your "disappointment" at the lack of communication for all of us

Any word on the smart cover or accessories? I don't even know if they have screen protectors for the N10 yet.

I thought for sure they would be selling the smart cover today. I was at least going to buy one of those. I'm still debating waiting on Walmart or not for the N10.

I think I'm going to wait for Amazon to get it. They often have good "bundle" deals with accessories & in addition I get free shipping from them.

I guess I should have waited. I tried ordering this morning and got numerous errors and lock ups of the play store. Even after waiting a very long time after confirming my order I never received any confirmation that an order had been processed. I had an appointment and to my surprise waiting in my inbox on my return was not 1 but 2 order confirmation emails from google for a Nexus 10! I tried to cancel one and nope - if 1 hour has passed since the order has been placed there is no way to cancel an order I was told when I phoned in to explain what had happened. I was told the only way was to wait for the 2 parcels and refuse to sign for one and then it would be returned and 15 days after it made its way back to google I would get a refund. The customer service rep even suggested I might want to keep the 2nd one to give as Christmas present! That is is good selling but not good customer service.

I have ordered hundreds of items online and never had this type of order processing problem. I hope the tablet experience is better than the ordering experience and as it is I am still excited to give the thing a go. I don't anticipate being a big app user so the limited tablet optimized choices is not a big deal. As long as Chrome and the google apps work well I will be satisfied and from what I have read they are well done.

Jeff

You aren't the only one. I saw many posts from people who had trouble ordering and then got charged for 2 or 3. Google just can't seem to have a smooth launch.
