On October 29, Google is expected to announce a new 10-inch Samsung tablet appropriately named the Nexus 10. Google SVP of Engineering Vic Gundotra may have just posted the first public photos taken with the Nexus 10's rear camera. Gundotra, who typically is the main speaker at Google's annual I/O developer conference, posted two images this morning of a scenic beach hangout. Details of the photo point out that they were taken with a "Nexus 10" camera. This type of information could conceivably be altered, but it's highly unlikely that Gundotra would go through the trouble, so these photos are confirmation that a Nexus 10 tablet is on its way to market soon.
Gundotra's photos also reveal that Snapseed for Android may arrive soon, possibly pre-installed on the Nexus 10 or incorporated into the Android 4.2 software. Both photos appear to be better than what is typically expected for tablet cameras and appear to have lighting adjustments applied after the photo was taken. There's no way to be certain that Snapseed made those adjustments, but Gundotra has openly posted Snapseed photos onto Google+ since Google acquired its developer Nik Software. Could Google use Monday's launch event to debut a new phone, new tablet, and a new photo app for good measure?Google+
