Nexus 10 captured on video


Google’s upcoming Android event might have been cancelled, but details of their new Nexus devices continues to leak out. Today the guys at Brief Mobile posted a brief video of the Nexus home screen. The preview is only a couple seconds long, but this anonymous source has access to the device and we expect a couple more videos will be shared over the coming days.

New details from the hands-on report include:

  • Screen may be IPS. It was my mistake yesterday writing “Super AMOLED.” We fixed that in our article and sent out a Twitter update about the correction. Our source claims the screen reproduces colors akin to the HTC One X and looks “gorgeous.”
  • Camera takes “excellent” pictures, according to the source
  • Back of the device feels like a faux brushed metal
  • It’s extremely light and thin

Anyone care to guess what the Nexus 10 will retail for?

      I hope either your phone or comp doesn’t resemble a glazed donut!! : )

    The screen looks awesome, the color is not washed out like Nexus 7. The bezel is very thick though?! It looks bigger than TouchPad !

    • veracu

      Totally agree

    • Revalence

      I just hope huge bezel = huge battery life.

      • ☻ ⌂

        huge bezel = huge battery drain

    • hasan

      the bezel is big to improve handling. it would be hard with thin bezel.

  • Meister_Li

    I really want this… But at the same time, I really don’t want a tablet without a Transformer-esque Keyboard dock again so… I really hope Samsung and Google have that in Store for us. o.o

  • Helen

    After watching this im surely getting the new iPad instead

    • PhilH

      So watching someone open a browser has caused you to decide to get the new iPad?

      • masterpfa

        Not necessarily, I wouldn’t go as far as to get the iPad 4th Gen, but this tablet, from what I have seen here and other websites doesn’t get my juices flowing at all, not liking the Phone type UI, although the specs do seem awesome, I will more than likely get another Nexus 7 with 32G and if available 3G.

        I will reserve judgement for the Nexus 10 until I get a hands on

        • Jake

          If the Nexus 10′s phone UI is what’s turning off the OP, as you suggest, then it makes perfect sense that she would want the iPad…which has a phone UI. Brilliant!

        • Nate B.

          So an iPad must not have a phone UI then? Yea, it’s pretty much a laptop. Smh…The only tablet that a realistic UI is the Surface.

    • zerosix

      Now tell us about the final nail in the coffin of Google.

    • Zyo

      Which “new” iPad?
      The new iPad or the newer new iPad?
      Sheep are stupid

  • AndroidGuy

    Not Shamesung again :-(

  • Justin W

    Nexus 10 Captured on Video, and you show me a 5 second video? Really?

    • J3R3MY_H

      they aren’t called briefmobile for nothing

      • Nate B.

        Lmao, just got what that meant. My laugh for the night ;-)

  • Nate B.

    I can’t get pass the look. I mean the bezel is chunky. Google needs a design team for all of their devices. The most creative thing they had that looked pretty neat from a design POV was the Q

    • Zech

      The dimensions are almost the same as the iPad and this has a bigger screen. Its bezel is not that chunky.

  • PhilH

    I wish people would quit crappin on this bezel. I know they did somewhat on the N7 but now it seems even more common after the iPad mini. People….you have to have somewhere to hold the thing!!!! I know it look all slick on sci-fi shows to see these to the edge screens but its not real life. The iPad mini buyers will find out when they try to hold their devices in portrait mode.

    If you want to know how it will be… take your phone right now and hold it in portrait by the edge. You see how akward you have to hold it to keep you finger off the screen. Hold it at the very bottom with one hand and see how the weight feels akward. No imagine the weight of a tablet while doing either of those. Imagine the mass being extended much further from the point where you’re holding it. Be glad you have space to actually hold the thing. It doesn’t take super designers to make a smaller bezel….just dumb ones.

    • Sid

      Finally someone get’s it :|
      i find people on tech websites getting dumber and dumber every day :|
      its a 10 inch tablet FFS meaning u will use it both in landscapre and portrait who the fuck will u hold something north 500 to 600 grams if it has no bezel :@ ?

    • Lucas

      This is simply not true. The iPad mini will ignore thumbs when held in portrait mode, it’s listed as a software feature on Apple’s website, go take a look. Google / Samsung could definitely have done something similar with the Nexus 10…. and I really wish they would have because, while I don’t mind a reasonably sized bezel, this bezel looks enormous!

      • Humberto H

        I will take that when i see it, i dont think this “ipad will recognize accidental touching” thing. When i see it, i’ll think Apple really did something.

      • NotRelevent

        Well this way you don’t need to care about where someone one’s thumb is.

    • h0ruza

      The bezel on the xoom is smaller.

      No one complained about there fingers get in the way while holding it.

      So maybe that’s why people gripe about the need for such big ass bezels when there is no need for them.

      It’s that simple.

      • Lucas

        THIS. why is this being downvoted? lol. As an android fanboi myself, I am smelling some serious (over-the-top) loyalty

        • herbivore83

          Yeah, good luck trying to convince some of these folk to see the downside in any Nexus device. It’s a shame we mock Apple fans so much and then turn around and act like Google can do no wrong.

  • QDOG8

    That clock, doe. It’s so small!

    • Humberto H

      YEAH! I’ll have to put the lockscreen just to see a decent size clock! =S

      Tablet UI is so much better than Hybrid UI for a 10″ TABLET

      • NotRelevent

        Best part about a nexus is that such issues as that are fixable.

  • irishrally


    • irishrally

      Haha it was just a guess …

  • birdman

    Why is it always a female name who comes in and bashes Samsung?

    Seems to me like an apple fan boy

  • Guy who hates 47% of all american americans

    Paid for by americans for an american america!?!

  • Lucas

    I’m guessing (hoping) it’ll sell for $399.

    • Humberto H

      Please… 399.99


      400$, no SD? 5mp camera? it really should be 400$


  • Tony

    IPS would be amazing! Of course if it was super amoled+ then that’s just as fine as well, long as no pentile is involved.

  • iamXiV92a

    I think it looks great!

  • Nathan D.

    I’m so looking forward to seeing this one.

  • Raptor

    Good: finally the res is right. And it’s not a pentile AMOLED dim powerhungry shit.
    Bad: it’s ugly, i am ready to threw up at its bezel and sickening band.
    Still i’ll take it…

    …for $200

  • revs

    THAT HUGE BEZEL IS DISGUSTING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • hu?

    some thing is wrong about this image…

  • Matt

    350.00. Many 10 inchers are 400.00 I think Google will come in below everyone else.

  • al

    That must be a fake chinese tablet or something. Why does it have a phone UI with a notification bar on top, shortcuts down and (back)(home)etc centered? The bezel is ugly and ridiculous too, if this is the nexus 10 for real, they can stick it up their a$$.

  • sere83

    As I said in the other thread, complete design fail. And as I suspected it is using the Faux metal back from the galaxy note 10.1 which in terms of build quality is an absolute abomination.

    Please please please google stop using samsung as your OEM for nexus devices. Look at the asus transformer infinity series and even the Nexus 7 then look at this junk.

    Android fans are right to be pissed off with this, the design is poor and its gonna reinforce the reputation of android devices as ‘cheap’ in comparison to ‘premium’ brands like apple.

    Really actually pisses me off that google don’t seem to care about design. SACK YOUR HARDWARE DESIGN TEAM NOW GOOGLE,

    • Zech

      How can you tell what back it’s using just by looking at a 5 second video of the front? How is a 2560 x 1600 300ppi screen with 2GB of RAM and an Exynos 5 cheap? The iPad’s bezel is just as thick and Android fans are being whiny for being pissed at such a thing.

  • DonLokiMan

    I wish samsung would make a non plastic device. It is what keeps me from buying samsung, they have no options that provide premium construction. The NExus 7 is plastic but they went a unique direction and thus it feels amazing.. I do not want faux brushed metal.

  • Florida, the p*nis of USA

    Nexus 10 is an abysmal design desaster.

  • Kelly

    This device has a slightly rounded old-timey TV screen shape, which is a good way to work around Apple’s patent on rectangles. I’m sure Apple will sleep much better now, knowing someone’s not stealing one of their “innovations.”

  • NexusNYC

    I think nexus 4 will be 299 and nexus 10 will be 349.

  • Broseph Stalin

    I just hope this doesn’t ship with the phone UI, it’s a waste of space.

  • RX-78-7

    The chromebook has similar specs, could that mean that this tablet could get priced at $399-$449?

    That would be insane.

  • Robby

    Only idiots who have no brain of their own still buy overpriced apple products, they are sad

  • Ron Johnson

    People are making too much of the UI. I think it will be customizable.

  • Ron Johnson

    Edit Add: and will look different once Apps are installed.

  • parthpatels007

    a 3g version please google :)

  • kookeetree

    Definitely a beast but I read that it freezes a lot.

  • sbala

    Me too expecting a 3g version
