Google Is Using The Nexus 10 To Bring Competition Back To 10-inch Tablets

Look back about a year and a half, and you’d find about 5 or 6 Android manufactures trying to compete with the full-sized iPad. When sales weren’t great, most of them pulled out, instead focusing on a market Apple didn’t dominate: 7-inch tablets. We then saw some underpowered and overpriced tablets like the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, which did nothing to really pull people away from the iPad.

With the Nexus 10, Google is looking to put some competition back in the 10-inch tablet market. Google’s director of business development John Lagerling claims that currently available 10-inch tablets are “overpriced and underpowered.” He wants to change that with the Nexus 10, which overs a good value for a decent amount of power. It’s still strong words considering that we recently discovered the iPad boasts stronger graphics than the Nexus 10, and the Nexus is only $100 in its base configuration.

We’d love to see the Nexus 10 change up the market, but it’s going to take more than the Android enthusiast demographic to do that.
