Nexus 10: Powerful and shareable
Nexus 10, the highest resolution tablet available with a 10.055" display at 2560-by-1600 (300ppi), that’s over 4 million pixels. It comes with a powerful battery that will get you up to nine hours of video playback and more than 500 hours of standby time. 5MP and 1.9MP cameras. Dual core CPU and quad core GPU.
With a set of front-facing stereo speakers, you can watch movies right from your Nexus 10 and they simply sound awesome. But what makes Nexus 10 unique is that it’s the first truly shareable tablet. With Android 4.2, you can add multiple users and switch between them instantly right from the lockscreen. We believe that everyone should have quick and easy access to their own stuff — email, apps, bookmarks, and more. That way, everyone can have their own home screens, their own music, and even their own high scores.
