Rounding things out, it obliterates its competition by donning a super skinny (0.41” thick) frame and lightweight (11.99 oz) feel in the hand.

With a nippy-enough processor, responsive capacitive touchscreen and large-enough display, it's a great device to lounge about on the sofa with, surfing idly.

Reviews Word on the street

Nexus 7  vs Iconia Tab A210 

Display quality is good, with a sharp image and commendable (if not searing) top brightness.
Nexus 7

Turn the Google Nexus 10 over and you'll find a big speaker at the top, along with the main 5 megapixel camera lens, which is also capable of shooting 1080p video at 30fps.
