Nexus 10: iPad killer?

When the iPad first released in 2010 it provided the perfect blend between a laptop and a smartphone. It wasn’t the first tablet to ever exist but it redefined tablet computing. And till date it has been going from strength to strength leaving its competitors far behind even after 2 years of release. Many wonder, will there ever be a tablet which will oust the current king from his throne? I may be speculating but based on the spec sheet of the Nexus 10, I think the iPad finally has a worthy competitor.

Manufactured by Samsung and Google, the Nexus 10 joins its younger brother, the Nexus 7 in an already congested tablet market. Its main targets the iPad and the iPad mini respectively. Nexus 7 and the iPad mini trade blows without leaving a clear winner, but this time we may have a clear winner if one doesn’t nit pick.
