Google Nexus 10 vs New iPad

Nexus 10 vs new iPad: It's battle of the tablets as Android takes on Apple's latest slate. Find out who comes out on top as we square up the specs

Google may have called off the event, but it did not hold off the announcements as it unveiled for the first time its Nexus 10 Android tablet that will run on the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS update.

Following news of the iPad Mini and the new iPad last week, Google is set to take on the Apple's larger tablet device once again this time with a pretty impressive specs list. Is it enough to worry the chaps at Cupertino though? We take a look at how the Nexus 10 shapes up against the new iPad.

 

Nexus 10 vs New iPad: Build

Nexus 10: Google has swapped ASUS for Samsung when building its larger Nexus tablet and while we don’t know the specifics of the materials used, it’s clear that it is inspired by the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 2. At 603g it is lighter than the iPad 4, and at 8.9mm thick it just nips the Apple tablet in the slender stakes.

New iPad: Not shying too far away from the design characteristics of the new iPad, the latest Apple tablet is made from an aluminium and weighs in at 652 g (Wi-Fi) and 662g (Wi-Fi and 3G) and is just 9mm thick.

 

Nexus 10 vs New iPad: Screen

Nexus 10: The standout hardware feature is the 10-inch display which boasts a 2560 x 1600 resolution and delivers an impressive 300 ppi for excellent levels of clarity. There’s also Corning Gorilla Glass 2 to improve viewing further and add another level of protection.

New iPad: Toting a 9.7-inch Retina display with IPS tech for wide viewing angles, the iPad 4 boasts 2048 x1536 screen resolution with 264 ppi which going by the numbers, is less than the Nexus 10. A fingerprint-resistant coating also means the Apple tablet should stay relatively smudge-free.
