Cheap Nexus 10 Price for a Hi-Resolution Tablet

Apple’s iPad4 is said to found its match shortly after it was released in November 2012. In fact, the Nexus 10 by Google was reported to have features that will surely beat the iPad4 in the 10-inch tablet category. Moreover, while the nexus 10 price is cheap, this is like the best deal you can get for a 10-inch tablet.

If you have doubts on this device, let’s compare this device to its rival, the iPad4, along with two other tablets from Amazon and Microsoft.

Comparing Tablets


Nexus 10

Apple iPad4

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9

Microsoft Surface RT

Nexus 10 has the perfect screen size in the 10-inch tablet category.

6.7" * 10.8" * 0.37"

Though bigger than Kindle HD, size doesn’t really matter when it comes to performance.






Kindle HD may be the lightest of the three. Nonetheless, its weight compared to that of Nexus 10 only makes a little difference.


Dual core, 1.7GHz, ARM Cortex-A15

Dual-core 1.3GHz A6X

32GB or 64GB

16GB, 32GB or 64GB
