Its insanely high 2560x1600 resolution gives it an unprecedented 300 PPI, which is the most of any tablet currently on the market (for those wondering, the retina iPad has a 264 PPI).

This is the lowest priced quad-core tablet we've seen, which goes big on value, something that's welcomed by double-dip recession hit wallets everywhere.

Reviews Word on the street

Nexus 10  vs Eee Pad Transformer TF300 

It's bright and sharp and makes for very good quality video chat over Google video chat and Skype.
Nexus 10

It also supports 802.11 b/g/n (2.4GHz and 5GHz) and MIMO Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and NFC (near-field communication).
Nexus 10

Gmail has a great new scaling feature that lets you see the whole email at once and then pan and zoom around it, but there's so much real estate on a tablet that email width was never really an issue.
Nexus 10

We've already mentioned how jaw dropping the display resolution is, but it's worth noting that it has superb viewing angles too.
