Google Debuts Nexus 10

Google’s worst-kept secret, the Nexus 10, is available for purchase on November 13 from Google Play.

The Nexus 10 features an ultra cool, high resolution screen that some say beats Apple’s. The price is right too, with a 16 GB model costing $399, or $100 less than the comparable iPad. The Nexus 10 will also feature Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), which looks like a supercharged version of the hotest Android OS; and you can bet when/if Key Lime Pie comes out, you’ll have that too.

Unfortunately, the only real problem for the Nexus 10 is its rather sub-par cameras. Oh wait, those beat out Apple’s too. This time, maybe Mrs. The Droid Lawyer will have to take my hand-me-down Asus Transformer Pad Infinity?
