Nexus 10 Back In Stock
If you have been impatiently waiting for the Nexus 10 to be in stock it may be time to quickly make the purchase.
Google’s 10-inch tablet is again available at the Play store, with both models of the Samsung-built device listed. The Nexus 10’s official page on Google Play says that units are shipping in “less than one week.”
The 16GB model is priced at $399 and the 32GB option is $499. The tablet had been sold out for most of the holiday season.
The 16GB Nexus 7 and both models of the Nexus 4 remain sold out, with no word from Google about when more stock may be available.
As a refresher the Nexus 10 has a 10.055-inch display with a 2560×1600 pixel resolution, which is even higher than the fourth-generation iPad. It weighs 1.33 pounds and is powered by Exynos 5 processor. Other specs include a 5-megapixel camera, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera and 2 GB of RAM.
It also comes out-of-the-box running Android 4.2, or Jelly Bean. Users will want to be sure to update to 4.2.1 when getting their device in hand as it includes a number of bug fixes to issues that arose in the newest version of Jelly Bean.
Along with the Nexus devices themselves, several promised accessories remain elusive. For example, a Nexus 7 dock has been spotted in other countries and leaked online, but there has been no word about when it will come to the United States. Some speculation has it showing up in early January.
The other mystery object is a purported dock for the Nexus 10; so far it has only been seen in an official Android holiday video.
Other accessories are listed on the Play store but are sold out. Various colors of the Nexus 7 case and all supplies of the Nexus 4 bumper are out of stock.
This speaks further to the challenges facing Google with its Nexus storefront. While clearly there is a significant demand for its official devices, keeping up with supply and communicating the status to customers remains a problem. Let’s hope that in the new year Google continues to figure this out and creates a better system for getting its supplies into the hands of customers.
