Nexus 10 vs. the competition: fight!

Google Nexus 10 Hands onGoogle undoubtedly upset the tablet market almost overnight with the Nexus 10: that record-setting 2,560 x 1,600 resolution, Exynos 5 Dual, Android 4.2 and all-important $399 starting price just tilted price-performance balance in a different direction than we’d seen even a week ago. But how does it stack up against its competition? We’ve included full details of the devices in a chart after the break; initial appearances suggest that pure performance hounds may like the Nexus 10 the most, although it doesn’t have the most diverse options for cellular data or storage. We’ll know the real tale of the tape once the Nexus 10 reaches our hands.
