Previously, pictures and an instruction manual of the rumoured Google Nexus 10 tablet have been leaked on the internet. Furthermore, pictures taken from the device’s camera have been posted on Google+ by a Google exec. Now, the device has been leaked on a five-second video.
We were expecting Google to lift the lid on this rumoured tablet on the 29th of October (Monday) in the search giant’s Android event, which was supposed to kick off in New York. Sadly, Hurricane Sandy is expected to hit areas in between Delaware and New York, which forced Google to cancel the event.
BriefMobile, also responsible for posting pictures of the rumoured device on its website, has posted a video that runs for five seconds on its website. If this tablet is the real deal, then we’re looking at the actual device in action regardless of how short the video may be.
According to the site, the device runs Android 4.2, which is a minor update to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). However, it will not be the next version of Android called Key Lime Pie. Android 4.2 will still be called Jelly Bean.
The tablet shown on the video as well as the leaked photos sports a thick bezel and a more curved design compared to the current Google Nexus 7. Google’s 7-inch tablet was manufactured by ASUS. The Google Nexus 10 is made by Korean firm Samsung.
Although neither Google nor Samsung has confirmed what lies within the device, according to reports, the tablet will sport a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels (more pixels per inch compared to the retina display on the iPad), a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, a 1.7GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 processor by the Korean tech giant, and 2GB of RAM.

After the Google Nexus 7 proved to be successful, Apple was bent on taking back the market shares it lost to the cheaper 7-inch tablet by launching the iPad mini on the 23rd of October.

It is also said to sport a 10.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. This would mean that the device’s screen would have a pixel count of 298.9ppi, which is higher compared to the 264ppi on the retina display of the iPad.
The photos also reveal that the device seems to be running Android 4.2, which is an updated version of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
The tablet in the photos also resembles the tablet seen in the leaked instruction manual of the Nexus 10.
The Google Nexus 10 is expected to be unveiled in Google’s event, which will be kicking off on the 29th of October. According to reports, the 10-inch tablet will not be the only device to be unveiled on the event.

There were many who were almost at the edge of their seats when Apple unveiled the iPad mini and the new iPad refresh (iPad 4). Despite this, there are also a number of iPad owners who are peeved at Apple for launching the latest iPad. This is according to a new survey.
The survey was conducted by Toluna QuickSurveys. The survey firm polled 2,000 current iPad owners. 45% of these owners were annoyed Apple announced the iPad 4 too soon, when the iPad 3 (new iPad) was only launched this year in March.
Sadly, Toluna QuickSurveys failed to include in their survey the reason why current iPad owners are annoyed at the iPad 4. However, it seems the common consensus is that owners feel their iPad is now obsolete less than a year after it was launched.
The refresh of the new iPad sports the Lightning connector just like the iPhone 5 and supports EE’s 1800MHz 4G spectrum. It also packs the A6X processor. Apple claims that the chip is two times faster compared to the older iPad, which makes it the most powerful iOS device in the market.
Other specs include a 9.7-inch retina display with a resolution of 1536×2048 pixels, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.2-megapixel HD front-facing camera, which is more powerful compared to the previous 0.3-megapixle secondary camera.
Although the survey revealed that current iPad owners are peeved at the iPad 4, it does reveal that the iPad mini has been received more positively.
According to the survey, 14% are sure to get their hands on the device while 32% say that they would probably buy the device, which means that 46% are interested in getting the smaller iPad. 21% say they would get it as a gift.
Are you planning to get the iPad 4, or are you still pretty peeved Apple launched the device earlier than expected? Let us know though a comment on our Facebook page.
