ASUS is to manufacture this year's 10-inch Nexus tablet, according to reports from Geek.com
In addition to being behind the highly-praised second-generation Nexus 7, ASUS might be about to replace Samsung as the manufacturer of a refreshed Nexus 10. That's according to Geek.com's Russell Holly, who has a pretty reliable track record in pinning down unannounced Google hardware.
Holly reports that "multiple sources" have confirmed the arrival of an ASUS-built Nexus 10 before the end of the year. Like the current Nexus 7, the new device is to be available on the Google Play Store and brick-and-mortar retailers "in time for the holiday season," according to the report. Given the success Google and ASUS have had with the Nexus 7 line, an ASUS Nexus 10 makes a lot of sense.
There's no word on what to expect in terms of internal hardware, but we'd expect an equally dazzling high-resolution display in the upcoming tablet, along with a suitably beefy CPU. It'll also be interesting to see whether ASUS is able to offer a 10-inch Nexus tablet at a lower price point than Samsung's existing Nexus 10.
