    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.

    NOT! :D I'm really looking forward to getting one.

    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.

    It has to do with keeping the device unlocked.

    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.

    Thanks.
