Today, Google officially announced their new Nexus 10. The 10-inch tablet is running Android 4.2. The device is manufactured by Samsung, but engineered for Google. The tablet features an impressive 10-inch display at 2560×1600 resolution, with 300ppi. Google calls it “True RGB Real Stripe PLS,”, but it is in par with the iPad’s infamous retina display.

It comes in 16GB and 32GB variants, and is Wi-Fi only. The tablet is powered by a dual-core ARM Cortex-A15, with a quad-core Mali T604 GPU inside. It packs 2GB ram and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera. The battery has a 9,000 mAh capacity, which Google says should suffice for up to 9 hours of HD video playback. It also has a microUSB port, Micro HDMI port and  two NFC chips, one on the front and one on the back.

Google is selling the 10-inch tablet for $399 for the 16GB version and $499 for the 32GB version. This makes the tablet competivielt priced against it’s blatant viral, the Apple iPad. It will be available on November 13th in the Google Play Store in the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada.
