It is the first 10 inch tablet of Google and they have made it sure it is thin. At 10.39 x 6.99 x 0.35 (263.9 x 177.6 x 8.9 mm), the device is almost as thin as the Samsung Galaxy S3. The device has a 9000 mAh. Battery in 8.9 mm thickness and Google says it has 9 Hours backup time with HD video Play back. In simple terms you can watch 3 movies on the trot.
OS
Nexus jelly beanIT’S ANDROID JELLY BEAN 4.2 and it is awesome. The OS is called the new flavor of Jelly Bean, an interesting tagline. The OS has features like Multiple User Accounts, Photosphere and Gesture Typing.
Photosphere allows you to take photos in all directions. In short it is panorama Photo capturing.
Gesture Typing is something unique. It is something like swping your hand over the keyboard to type a word. you just Swipe your finger over the letters you want to type, lifting after each word is complete.

Google States, “We believe that everyone should have quick and easy access to their own stuff -- email, apps, bookmarks, and more. That way, everyone can have their own home screens, their own music, and even their own high scores.”

Verdict
With the 16GB Google Nexus 10 price coming at £319 (US$399/AUD$469) and the 32GB option offered at £389 (US$499/AUD$569), the device is just a little expensive. Although the specs are really good, we were expecting something a little less expensive from Google. Google has missed a trick here by pricing this device only $10 less than the iPad 4. Apart from that, the device is a gem of a tablet and it will give a hard time to all other 10 inch tablets!
