Google Nexus 10 2 Pushed to 2014?

GoogleRumors about the new Google Nexus tablet were ripe in November, with many believing that the tech giant would release the Nexus 10 2 on Black Friday. That day came and went with no news about the second generation of the 10-inch tablet. There are now thoughts that Google will push the release of the Nexus 10 2 to 2014.

Considering the launch of the Nexus 5 was so quiet on October 31, it was easy to think that the company would do the same with one of its flagship tablets. There were plenty of rumors about it but there was no confirmation until it showed up on the Google Play store.

One thing the 5-inch smartphone did have was the latest version of Android, KitKat. It showed that Google was still working and updating its own operating system. It is clear that the 10 2 will likely have this new operating system.

Many people question why the internet giant is releasing products quietly and not confirming whether rumors are true or not. Surely it would make more sense to announce a release date. Not only would it stop the annoying speculation, it would help people make a decision. Do they wait out for a possible new tablet that may never end up being released, or do they spend their money on a device already on the market?

Google has not yet confirmed that there will even be a new 10-inch tablet. The speculations are based on the fact that the company needs to compete with Apple’s new iPad Air.

With Christmas just around the corner, it is unlikely that it will be released beforehand. It is more likely that the Google Nexus 10 2 tablet’s release will be pushed to 2014, if it even happens. There are even rumors spreading that there will simply not be a second generation of the tablet, and the company may be working on a Nexus 8. The tech company has also found that smaller tablets sell better and run the Android software more efficiently, which could see a discontinuation of the larger options.

If the rumors about the 10 2 are true, the specifications have not changed. The device will still have an 8MP camera on the back and then the 2.1MP for the front. These specifications will be an upgrade from the 5MP camera on the original Nexus 10’s back, and a 1.9MP camera on the front. The display is expected to be the same as the first generation device.

The big difference will come in the software. Like the Nexus 5, the new Google device is speculated to have the KitKat software, which is Android 4.4. The RAM and screen resolution are also supposed to be better, with at least 2 GB and 2560 x 1600 respectively. Asus is rumored as the maker of the tablet.

2013 has already been a big year for Google. It saw the release of the Nexus 5 and second generation of the Nexus 7. After the release of the 7 2, the 10 2 seemed like the most probable next step. While there is still no confirmation that it will be released, there are now many thoughts that the Google Nexus 10 2 will be pushed by the 2014.

    Not setting a release date and letting rumors fly IS FREE marketing for Google’s Nexus and related products. Expect this to continue. Gives us tech speculators something to write about 🙂

    Another useless article with no content! The author talks about “annoying” speculation? People writing useless articles are the most annoying people. Generating useless articles just to get advertising. Any they complain when we use the free adblock extensions for Google Chrome or Firefox?

    The release is “pushed” to 2014? How could the release be pushed anywhere, when the device only exists in the minds of spammy bloggers? You guys make up BS about non-existent devices, then report on it so much you start to believe it yourselves. Really, get a grip and stop making up nonsense.

    Honestly, KitKat on the current nexus 10 runs absolutely fantastic. I’ve had the nexus 10 since the original 4.2.2 release. The newest update runs the smoothest on this hardware out of all of the releases thus far. It’s the only android device that I’ve owned ( which is a number just shy of 10) that I’ve not had to root or ROM to improve the experience. Kudos to Google and I look forward to the next nexus 10!

    I think they’re trying to clear old inventory. I too am waiting. I was reading tablet reviews yesterday and the Nexus 10 released last year is still one of the best bangs for the buck.

    KitKat is said to be a buggy system. Rumors are just that, rumors or HYPE. Why can’t any ‘reporter’ just wait until they get a hands on tablet and then report something honest for a change. Same applies to most other items lately, but not all.
    Google could be putting out bread crumbs but I think your really not much better.
    If this ever came about as the rumors say it could be a great tablet that would apply to a 8″ version should they go with it as well. Would be nice to have 8gb of ram though.

      Comments are just that, comments. Words are just words. I do wish the circular statement fade would stop.

      you did read the article so the writer did something right
