The holiday season isn’t too far away which means the preceding shopping period is even closer. Consumer purse strings are the loosest this time round which makes it the best time of the year for the manufacturers to go for the kill with their wares. Manufacturers also time the launch of their devices to clash with the shopping season to ensure maximum uptake by the consumers. So it shouldn’t be surprising for the mobile world to be abuzz with news of the Nexus 10 2 being released in time for Google to take full advantage of the buying spree that people get into during this time. Google however is yet to make any official announcement about the issue. Speculations are rife about Black Friday which falls on November 29 to be the D-day, and it seems that they would all come true for those many customers eagerly waiting for this gadget.
Black Friday is a very special day for all which includes the manufacturers, retailers, or the general consumers as this marks the onset of the holiday shopping season. This seems to be especially true for the mobile or smartphone makers this time given the wide array of schemes that are announced to promote sales on that day which complements the wide choice of devices available. Google surely will not like to let go of this opportunity and pitch in their Nexus 10 2 in the list of items up for sale.
Of course both the new Apple tablets, the iPad Air and the iPad mini with Retina display will be hot favorite among the shoppers which also would make Google look up and indulge them with their latest offering to the market.
It is not only Apple but there is Microsoft with the Nokia Lumia 2520 that would also be making its mark in the market this shopping season. The Lumia 2520 is a 10 inch tablet and has been available via Verizon and AT&T since November 22.
As for its specifications, the Google Nexus 10 2 is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor along with an Adreno 330 GPU to handle the graphics. It will have 2 GB of RAM and a rear facing camera of 5 MP resolution. It would come in variants of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB of storage space. The display which has been a high point of the first gen Nexus 10 is expected to be retained for the new version as well, which speak of a 10.1 inch screen that boasts of a stunning resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.
So far as cost of the Nexus 10 2 goes, it is being speculated the cost would be in line with that of the Nexus 10. If that be true, the 16 GB would be fetching for $399 while the 32 GB variant would fetch for $499.
