Google Nexus 10 tablet coming soon :)

Google finally took the wraps off the Nexus 7 tablet this week — and put it up for sale at just $199. Now, it looks like they’re getting ready to release a second model: the Nexus 10. As you probably guessed, it’ll feature a 10-inch display. Like its 7-inch sibling, the Nexus 10 is going to feature an extremely tempting price tag: $299.

Once again, it’s a report from DigiTimes that has the tech world buzzing. According to DigiTimes’ contacts, Wintek, who has already provided half a million OGS touchpanels for the Nexus 7, will be supplying 10-inch panels for use in a Nexus tablet. They’ll have help from AU Optronics, who will also pitch in with panel parts.

Normally, a Digitimes report needs to be taken with a spoonful of skepticism. This time, however, their information lines up nicely with information that a Geek.com source shared. Google is indeed getting ready to release the Nexus 10.

What’s even more interesting is that they may have been planning to launch it on day two of Google I/O 2012. That didn’t happen, of course, and it’s believed that manufacturing difficulties may have been to blame.

As for when we’ll finally see the Nexus 10 go on sale, that’s anyone’s guess. With the Microsoft Surface and Surface Pro set to hit retail shelves in October, however, Google would be smart to move quickly. Even if the Nexus 10 turns out to be nothing more than the Nexus 7 with a larger display and battery, the $299 price tag would not doubt help Google capture a significant chunk of tablet sales between now and the end of the year.
