Google Nexus 10 vs. Apple iPad: What to know before you buy
Google's new Nexus 10 fits in with this new generation of iPad competitors. Made by Samsung for Google , the Nexus 10's technical specifications match or better those of Apple's device in many ways.
It has a higher-resolution screen than the iPad's vaunted Retina display. It's both lighter and slightly thinner than the latest iPad. And in my tests, its processor and graphics chip compare favorably with those in Apple's device.
These specifications may or may not matter to you. I didn't find the Nexus 10's higher resolution display to be significantly sharper than the iPad's. And its differences in weight and thickness were small enough to not be noticeable.
But Apple clearly no longer has an advantage for those who are looking at the specs. With the Nexus 10, you get a speedy, responsive, lightweight device with a beautifully sharp screen. Even better, you can get it for $400, which is $100 less than you'd pay for the comparably equipped iPad.
