The Samsung-made Nexus 10 just landed in our hands, and we had a little time to take it for a spin. It’s no secret that this particular tablet is ready for some serious hand-to-hand combat against the iPad, possessing a rather stunning set of components and solid build quality. First, let’s go over the laundry list of specs. The Nexus 10 has a dual-core 1.7GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 under the hood — these are Cortex-A15 processors — as well as a Mali T604 GPU and 2GB RAM. There’s little doubt in our minds that this is more than sufficient to please power users, especially now that we’ve had some time to see how incredibly speedy everything is. We were even more impressed than we had anticipated, as the tablet features some of the most detailed and smoothest graphics we’ve seen.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the Nexus 10 offers a 2,560 x 1,600 display, which equates to just over 300ppi. For comparison, the new iPad packs a 2,048 x 1,536 panel for a pixel density of 264. Numbers are just numbers, of course, but the “True RGB Real Stripe PLS” screen is definitely one of the nicest we’ve gazed upon. Pixelation was nearly non-existent, viewing angles were great and colors were amazingly vibrant. It’s also supported with Gorilla Glass 2.
There’s plenty to say and see, so check out our gallery below and head past the break for a video and more impressions.
