Nexus 10

A seller on eBay is now offering an excellent bargain on one of the best 10 inch Android tablets from 2012 – the Samsung made Nexus 10. Although it didn’t sell as much as Google wanted, it is still highly regarded in the developer community as one of the best tablets running Vanilla Android. This tablet can now be yours for as little as $330 through the online retailer along with free shipping as an added bonus.


Google has reportedly dropped Samsung and reached a deal with HTC over the next-generation Nexus 10, according to unnamed industry sources. The current Nexus 10 hasn’t been quite as successful as its smaller sibling, the Nexus 7, but Google will surely be hoping that HTC’s design expertise can change that.


HTC may be planning a surprise return to the tablet market to manufacture Google’s next-generation Nexus slates. Reports in Taiwan claim the company has secured orders for a “high-end model of the Google Nexus tablet” that is expected to start shipping in the third quarter of 2014.


Google is preparing to drop its Nexus devices in favor of Google Play Edition smartphones and tablets in 2015, according to Russian tipster Eldar Murtazin. It’s thought third-party manufacturers don’t like competing with Nexus price tags, which could also be hurting sales of Google’s Motorola handsets.


Looking to pick up some official accessories for your Nexus devices? Well, now’s a great time to splash some cash, because Google has slashed 25% off many of them for a limited time. The sale includes all cases for the Nexus 5 and the latest Nexus 7, but those with a Nexus 10 will be disappointed.


Earlier this week, Google released the Android 4.4.2 OTA update for all the Nexus devices it currently supports. Unlike the Android 4.4.1 update that was rolled out last week, the latest update to KitKat only fixed a few under-the-hood bugs and patched a major security loophole.

The roll-out of the Android 4.4.2 OTA update has been pretty quick from Google’s side and chances are you must have already received the OTA update notification on your device. However, if you are rooted, the OTA update will fail to install on your Nexus device.


The latest build (KOT49H) of Google’s recently updated operating system, 4.4.2 KitKat, is now officially available to download for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. However, this update doesn’t use Android’s standard over-the-air (OTA) upgrade process. Instead, you will have to download the 4.4.2 factory images and install them on your device via the search engine giants Developer Platform.
