Just saw this pop up and it doesn't look like it's been posted yet. Breifmobile.com has gotten their hands on the Nexus 10 and taken a number of pictures and screenshots and released the specs for Google's upcoming 10" tablet.

Pretty impressive overall, I'd be interested to see how the CPU in particular lines up against the CPU in the Nexus 7

Yeah, lots of news sites are reporting on this. I am curious what it will have for storage options - although I definitely will not be buying one. I'm happy with the Nexus 7, and I generally hate tablets since they don't help me accomplish anything.

From what I've read, A15 based chips are quite a few times more powerful than A9 based ones like what's in the Nexus 7

The dual core Exynos 5, Mali-T604 GPU, and 2 GB of RAM give it a decent advantage over it's primary competitor, the iPad. On top of that, the screen resolution (2560x1600) is also a bit higher giving it 298.9 PPI vs the iPad's 263.92. The big question there for me would be if that's a pentile screen or not. Most of Samsung's SAMOLED screens with that kind of pixel density are Pentile, and that really bothers me. I had a Pentile SAMOLED (Captivate), then a non-Pentile SAMOLED+ (Infuse), and now a non-Pentile 720p SLCD (One X), and regardless of what people say, I certainly notice and don't like it. The 298 PPI number is less than the "316 PPI" number of the Galaxy Nexus with a Pentile screen, and it's noticeable to me on there, so I'd assume it would be on this as well.

Still, hard to find much to complain about. If this drops at a price range of $300-$400, it could really have an impact.

I have an HTC One X which is a Snapdragon S4 CPU which close to, but isn't even a true A15, and it can easily compare to the Tegra 3 in the international One X. The T3 beats it in some ways, the S4 beats the T3 in some ways, but overall they are both VERY fast. About as fast as you could need on a phone right now. A true A15 should prove to be very powerful with very good battery use.

[b]Edit:[/b] Oh, and I'm interested to hear what the dual front speakers sound like. I'm amazed that there still isn't a tablet that I've seen that can compare to the Playbook's speakers. The Playbook has 4 speakers, two on each side, and is substantially louder and clearer than all the other tablets I've seen. I really don't know why tablet makers haven't put better speakers on tablets yet. It's one of the biggest things missing if you ask me. We have absolutely fantastic looking screens, but the sound still sounds like garbage.

I'll be interested to see how it handles playing games at that resolution. On paper though the specification is really impressive.

The SoC is the same one from the Chromebook which has some preliminary benchmarks [url="http://www.androidauthority.com/exynos-5-dual-benchmarks-125134/"]here[/url]. According to those it's faster than the Apple A6, Intel Atom Z2460, Snapdragon S4, and Tegra 3. That SoC also has USB 3.0 support and can do 1920x1080 video encode/decode at 60fps instead of the usual 30. The GPU has full profile 1.1 OpenCL and supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and DirectX 11 (feature level 9_3 though) so in some ways it's more capable than the Xbox360 and PS3.

Awesome, will be interesting then to see how Google price it

Edit: Wow, that CPU is indeed impressive.

I'm not sure how it compares to the A6X that Apple launched with the iPad 4 as that's a step up from the tested A6 from the iPhone 5. Also I'd like to see a comparison with the S4 Pro and not just the S4 to see how the Mali-T604 in the Exynos compares to the Adreno 320 in the S4 Pro.

nexus 7 uses tegra 3 (quad cortex a9 with poor gpu), this uses dual cortex a15 which is very nice and the mali gpu is supposed to be great. The snapdragon s4 is krait cores which is qualcomm's competitor to cortex a15. I'm not aware of benchmarks being out yet comparing dual core krait versus dual core a15, would like to see them though. This SoC should be faster than tegra at most things but not everything as tegra 3 is quad core. This gpu is way better than tegra 3 gpu as that is based on a really old gpu architecture. Tegra 4 will be based on kelper, that will be a beast in Q1 2013.

From what I've heard the GPU paired with the Tegra 3 is one of it's stronger points, at least in the HTC phones anyway. Is the GPU in the Nexus 7 different to that in the HTC phones?

It WAS a strong point but now we have much faster gpu's from imation [i]SGX544[/i]MP4, Adreno 320, mali-t604, those all destroy the tegra which is a 5-6yr old gpu design i believe which doesn't support modern versions of opengl and other video standards due to it being so old.

This is going to be awesome but the iPad is so entrenched I'm not sure this tablet is going to affect sales that much.
