Google’s Nexus 10 is one up on certain important metrics as compared to the highly popular Apple’s iPad. These include the weight, size and display, add them to the fact that the Nexus 10 is priced much cheaper than the Apple counterpart and you have what looks like a definite winner. However, while all these aspects might look great on paper, the reality of the share of the market that the Nexus 10 would be able to grab from iPad remains to be seen. Google’s Nexus 10 is priced at $499 as compared to the $599 that is charged for an iPad.
Apple has always charged a premium price brandishing their better than average hardware as the distinguishing feature. However, the new launch by Google manages to to surpass a lot of the specs of the Apple device. The pixels per inch density offered by the Nexus is greater than that offered by Apple in its Retina iPad. The launch of the Nexus 10 had already been predicted by certain experts who claimed earlier in the month that Samsung and Google would be joining forces to come up with a very high resolution 10 inch tablet.
Nexus 10 has several useful features like the Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), a dual core ARM Cortex A15 processor, a 2560 by 1600 pixel display resolution; it is the pioneer amongst tablets to be using the new ARM technology. While the hardware for the new launch might be extraordinary, Apple still takes the cake as far as the connectivity is concerned, as Nexus 10 presently does not have 3G or 4G/LTE compatibility. While hardware is definitely important, it is by no means the end of the road. Even if the new launch grabs a major share of the market, the smaller contenders would be more affected than the mighty Apple.
