16GB model may sell for £350 in the UK, fresh retail leak suggests
 
It's been a little over a month since we first caught wind that Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS might be making the next 10-inch Nexus tablet, and now a fresh flurry of retail leaks brings some corroborating evidence. Yesterday a PC World employee tweeted a screenshot showing the tablet's name in the UK chain's systems; today we've received some more details from an anonymous tipster at Currys, a UK retailer owned by the same company.
 
The images given to us corroborate the £349.99 price point for the device, and suggest that this could be the price for the 16GB model. (By comparison, the current 16GB Samsung Nexus 10 sells for £319 on Google Play.) It's still far from official, but the buzz around the purported tablet certainly seems to be growing. While we wait on an official announcement, hit the comments and let us know what you'd like to see in an ASUS Nexus 10.

Good, ASUS should make it.  They have been successful with the 1st Gen N7 and the 2nd gen N7.  Didnt seem the N10 took off to well and would be good to go someplace other than Samsung.

10" is just too big for a tablet for me. I really like the feel of the 7" tablets more. I have the iPad 2 along with a BB Playbook and N7 and I much prefer the 7" form factor. 10" is more of a coffee table tablet for me whereas 7" is a carry around, use inside or outside, more portable type tablet. I guess it depends on the use.

I have the

 

Nexus 7 1st gen

iPad 2

HP Touch Pad

Acer w500 11 inch Tablet

 

If I am going to put a tablet in my hands I find my self using the iPad. ... That and my nexus is always dead when I want to use it. The iPad in comparison has a crazy battery standby time. For me That's the deal breaker... I mean what is the iPads standby time ...a month? I'd believe it.

I had the original Transformer.  Great tablet and currently I have 4.2 installed on it and gave it to my mom.  I need to toss on 4.3.  I bought the 2nd gen N7 and much more prefer to use that.  I use it everyday now to.

Read a lot of issues with the latest nexus 7 along with build quality of the first one. I'd rather have a different manufacturer make it.

Just multitouch.  I have not had any other issues.  Their update fixed a lot of the multitouch issues but some are still having problems.  But ASUS makes a good tablet.

They rolled out the update but wasn't fixed. It's suggested that it may be a HW calibration issue. That's a big problem.

Some worst touch issues after the update. I was researching before making the purchase. I'm hesitant.

Not the first time a company didnt get it right with the first fix.
