Google has announced the Nexus 10  (16 / 32 GB)
priced at $399/$499 US dollars, its very own Android tablet to take on the Ipad 4 & Surface !
Google Nexus 10

Price in India should be between:
Rs 21,000 - 23,000  (16 GB ) &

Rs 26,000 - 28,000  (32 GB ).
Rumor is that the Samsung Google Nexus 10 will be on sale in India at the end of November 2012.

The Ipad has been dominating the 10 inch tablet market ever since its release. Google has finally revealed its very own 10 inch Android tablet built by Samsung. So the competitors are Samsung Google Nexus 10 , Apple's Ipad 4 & Microsoft's Surface. Its too early to make any comparisons and draw out conclusions.
Needless to say the Nexus devices of Google are always first in the line when it comes to new Android updates, the Google Nexus 10 is no different. The Nexus 10 will feature the new Android 4.2 OS which is an update to the Jelly bean 4.1 Android OS, there was a lot of discussion on the name but in the end it is named nothing else but Jelly bean.

Some of the new Android 4.2 updates are : 
1. Photosphere
2. Gesture typing
3. Tablet sharing
4. Miracast support ( Wireless display)
5. Improved Google now
6. Day dream
7. Lock screen enhancements and
8. Enhanced notifications

So in short if u decide to buy the Nexus 10, you will get all these new features out off the box plus the existing features of Jelly bean Android 4.1
