Google Nexus 10 2 Rumors Wrong Again

Google Nexus The rumors about the Google Nexus 10 2 tablet have been proven wrong, again. The news comes after the first generation model is back in stock on the Play Store.

Two weeks ago, the 10-inch tablet was out of stock on the Play Store, leaving many customers disappointed and tech experts predicting the release of a new generation of the device. This was not the first time reports of a new tablet had hit the internet.

Rumors of a second generation of the tablet have been making the rounds, since September 2013, when the Google Nexus 5 initially hit the scenes. The release of the Nexus 5 was so quiet, that many people were shocked to see it suddenly available on the Play Store. A lack of confirmation about the 10 2 device was not a concern with that in mind.

When the device did not follow, Black Friday was predicted as the day of the launch, and then Cyber Monday when it still did not show. Soon, tech enthusiasts resigned to the fact that they would have to wait until the New Year, with a possible release at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. That date came and went and there was still no sign of the new Google Nexus device.

When a device goes out of stock for a prolonged period of time, it is usually a sign that something new is coming. It was understandable that people started to believe the long-awaited for second generation tablet was on its way. However, today has proven the Nexus 10 2 rumors wrong when the Google Nexus 10 appeared back in stock.

The International Business Times suggests that Google needs to do something. Apple is quickly taking over with its range of tablet devices, including the iPad Mini with Retina Display. The new Apple device is suspected to take 16 percent of the total iPad sales, and is defeating other 8-inch tablets on the market.

The question is whether the Nexus line will survive. Guardian Liberty Voice has previously reported that Google may be getting rid of the line in favor of the Play Edition line. This news came from predictions from Russian blogger Edgar Murtazin. While his predictions have been hit and miss, in the past, a lack of second generation 10-inch tablets seems to favor his ideas.

Some people believe that Google is waiting for the release of a new Android system. There are rumors that the device will have Android 4.5, which could be a completely new system or an upgrade of the latest KitKat system. However, the tech giant has only just released Android 4.4, meaning people will have to wait a little longer if this rumor holds any truth.

Google remains extremely tight-lipped about the new device, along with plans for the future. This has annoyed many fans of the Android devices. There are many waiting to see if the Nexus 10 2 will make an appearance, with people holding off buying other devices in the hope that it will appear. Many others have given in and bought other devices after seeing so many Google Nexus 10 2 rumors being proven wrong, again and again.

    I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting…
    Every day I check if there has been any news on the release if there ever will be.
    Despite being a Google fanatic, I’m being forced to look around.I buy a tablet and smartphone every year… Last year I didn’t buy a tablet waiting for the new nexus. Why should I buy old technology which won’t perform well for at least a year?
    Google this is not the way to treat loyal customers, but on the other hand it’s an excellent way how to turn loyalty into frustration.
    Just keep us hanging for a couple of months more but I’m sure I would have found a replacement by then… There is a limit for everything

    I’m one of them. I bought an IPad Air as this waiting game was too long. I love Nexus devices but the IPad will do the job just fine.

    The Nexus 10 is still shown as out of stock on Google Play Store. Could you pl let us know the country where you could see it back on Play store?
    I agree its been rumours and nothing else for sometime now. I have lost patience and am seriously contemplating moving to other options.

    The Nexus 10 is NOT back in stock on Google Play.
    You must have a cached web page.
    You actually probably did not even check it out yourself but went by International Business Times, which is never correct. I saw their claim yesterday or Sat. and they were wrong then.
    You should never go by a known unreliable site.
    That makes you as bad as they are.
    You better retract your article.
    SHAME ON YOU!

      Actually Frank, it is back in stock. The 32GB variant only, not the 16GB. Shame on you for not checking properly. I’d retract your comment more like.

      I personally checked the Google Play Store to make sure it was in stock at the time of writing. Sorry you didn’t find it in stock and you then felt the need to attack someone and make presumptions.
