New Nexus 10 to be Produced by Asus


Do you remember few days ago when we said that Asus might get into the smartphone market with its own smartphone? – Well, maybe we were wrong because Asus is mentioned to be the main manufacturer of the new Nexus 10 refresh. Asus already worked on Nexus’ previous versions and they give really nice makeover of the device. It seems that Google’s Nexus devices are on the verge of receiving their newest editions and Asus will be leading the way. Google has a strict policy of choosing the proper manufacturer for its devices and when it comes to its Nexus, they are really picky.

The Nexus program represents a war between all the big companies that want to be Google’s new partner manufacturing this device. Before contacting it, many companies first need to make their best design for the upcoming device and then hand it over to Google. From here, Google evaluates all designs and then they pick the company which will be the main manufacturer and carrier of this device until next time. This demonstrates the vision that Google has about its Android vision. Free of OEM software and carrier modifications, Google’s way is to see which company is the best for the business and to be honest, I really admire this process.

There is already a Nexus 10 device which was launched last year alongside the 7-inch Nexus tablet version. The first ever Nexus 10 was produced by Samsung and it had a really great and responsive display and was available for affordable price. This new Nexus 10 version will have the same name like its predecessor but it will be manufactured by Asus.


As we said earlier, this isn’t the first time we see Asus and Google collaborate because this company was responsible for manufacturing the last year’s Nexus 7 and its new refreshment Nexus 7 2013. Google and Asus enjoy their good relationship and we can say that Asus is the best company for producing the Nexus 10 at this time. It can keep up with the fast pace which was forced by Google and it can keep the price close to its predecessor’s price.

The Nexus 10 wasn’t so much popular as its little brother, the Nexus 7, but the time has changed since last year. Apps and Android OS have bigger and better support from the displays with higher resolution. This year’s Nexus 10 could be revealed as a family tablet because of the new Android 4.3 features.

Some sources are claiming that this Nexus 10 will be available in Best Buy retailers and Google Play Store sometime before the holiday month. There are no details of what might this Nexus 10 feature or which improvements will it include but from previous work, Qualcomm processor and a display with higher pixel density will definitely be seen on it.

    Another new tablet that launched this week that’s worth a look is the Pipo M7 Pro Android tablet for $255 that offers a 8.9 inch display with 1900X1200 screen resolution, a Quad core processor, along with built-in GPS.

    Pipo Electronics is a lesser known brand but offer tablets with a good build quality and premium
    features. The speakers offer great sound, it has Dual Band Wifi ( 2.4 and 5.0 GHz frequencies)
    and is packed with features that compare to the new Nexus. There’s also the new Pipo M9 Pro ($285) model which offers a 10-inch version — and 3G HSPA+ is available with either model for $30 more, which works with any GSM Network Carrier for 3G/4G wireless Internet service.

    One of the first sites I’ve seen these new models through is T ablet Sprint – which also offers a Miracast TV — HD wireless adapter — which is much better than Chromecast and doesn’t limit the content you display like Chromecast does — it sells for $39 and works much more like Apple’s $100+ Airplay Wireless display technology.
