If you are looking to buy a great large-screen Android tablet, then you cannot go wrong with the Nexus 10. Google released the Nexus 10 last year with Samsung as their original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and it offered many high-end features at an affordable price. With a screen surpassing the Retina display from Apple, a powerful processor, and a feature-rich operating system, the Nexus 10 2012 matched iPad head-to-head and was Google’s answer to Apple’s dominance in the tablet market.
The Nexus 10 2012 sports a 10.1-inch WQXGA resolution display (2560 x 1600 pixels), and it is powered by a dual-core CPU clocked in at 1.7 GHz along with 2GB of RAM. Running on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system, it features a 5 MP camera with LED flash on its rear and a 1.9 MP camera on its front. It was juiced by a 9000 mAh battery rated to run for around 9 hours with regular usage. The 16GB version of Nexus 10 is priced attractively at $399, while the 32GB version retails for $499. However, last year, Nexus 10 Black Friday deals offered the tablet at a huge discount, which could be repeated again this year. With an increasing demand for tablets in the consumer electronics market, the deals and offers during Black Friday are bound to get only better.
Nexus 10 Black Friday Price and Sales Expectations
Last year, the 16GB Nexus 10 was offered at a price of around $320 during the Black Friday period, while the 32GB Nexus 10 was offered at a price of around $410. However, some retailers did offer better deals by bundling it with various accessories such as screen protectors, covers, external keyboards, car chargers, styluses, adapters, and more. Whatever the case may be, customers are sure to get a better deal on their tablet on Black Friday.
With some retailers already offering the Nexus 10 2012 tablet for a reduced price, it can be had for a bargain during the Black Friday sales period, provided the stocks last until then. Expect to the see the prices on the 16GB version to sink below $300, while the prices on the 32GB version would hover somewhere around the $380 mark. At those prices, the Nexus 10 is a steal to get, considering the various beneficial features it offers.
However, with Google slated to launch a new version of Nexus 10 soon, along with Nexus 5 and the latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, it is suggested that you delay your purchase until the Nexus 10 2013 version releases in the market. Its tentative release date is set around early November, which is right before Black Friday. As a result, you are expected to get a better deal on the tablet, whether you choose to go with the previous year’s model or the latest one.
Moreover, many reports suggest that Google is planning to shift its OEM partner from Samsung to Asus. It should be noted that Asus already manufactures the highly popular Nexus 7 tablet, which is one of the most successful small-screen tablets. Also, Asus is known to manufacture their products with better build quality than Samsung, and they also price their products at a more affordable rate. With an early November tentative release date, consumers can expect to get an even better deal on their Nexus 10 purchase.
The new Nexus 10 is expected to feature the same high-resolution display as that of the current model, but a remarkably powerful processor such as the Snapdragon 800 and an even better battery life. With the imminent launch of Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, the new tablet is presumed to run faster, smoother, and better than ever before; thus, it is forecast to be a great competitor for iPad, which is the still the market leader when it comes to tablets.
Even though Black Friday is almost two months away from now, if you planning to grab one of the Nexus 10 Black Friday holiday offers, then it definitely worth the wait. After all, it is one of the best times to buy any consumer product.
