When Google created the first official Nexus tablets last year, it partnered with ASUS for the 7-inch model and chose Samsung to create the larger 10-inch Android tablet with Samsung. The 2013 Nexus tablets will be consolidated to one manufacturer, according to reports. Geek.com claims that multiple sources have confirmed that Google has selected ASUS as its manufacturing partner for the new Nexus 10 tablet. The report comes from Russell Holly, who has been accurate about his Google rumors in the past, including breaking the story of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and HTC One Google Play editions.
Google and ASUS are currently developing a new Nexus 10 tablet to be released this holiday season. The tablet will have at least 16GB of internal storage according to a retailer's placeholder page seen in a leaked photo. It's also likely to continue the high-resolution 2560x1600 display and have a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, though the exact model is unclear.
A new Nexus 10 tablet would provide Google with a full-size tablet option for consumers this year. The Nexus 7 has been a success in the lower cost and portable segments, but the Nexus 10 has not been as popular. The ASUS-made follow-up will reportedly tempt to users with more impressive hardware when it goes on sale at Best Buy and Google Play later this year.source: Geek.com
