Nexus 10 Specifications:
* Samsung Exynos 5250, clocked at 1.7 GHz, dual-core Cortex-A15
* Mali-T604 GPU
* 2GB RAM
* 16GB internal storage (other options possible)
* 10.1-inch Super AMOLED display
* 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, 298.9 pixels-per-inch
* 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, LED flash
* Front-facing camera
* NFC
* WiFi
* Bluetooth 4.0
* Dual speakers located on front of device

Finally: front facing speakers! Putting function before form - that is not copying Apple ;-)

Hopefully all true (only downer is usual Nexus lack of microSD support).

I have the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (strangely same specs as Galaxy Tab 2 10.1) and I tried out the Galaxy Note 10.1 the other day for a good 15 minutes. I was unimpressed.

Yes the tablet is slightly faster than my rooted/modded first gen tab, and it has a pen to boot, BUT the Android platform is not ready for pen input IMO.

I was expecting to be able to open a PDF file using the demo tab, and write notes all over it. But I couldn't. (using stock apps anyway).

Nexus 10 should be great as I have always loved/owned the Nexus lineup. But it does need to still convince me that there are worthy benefits to upgrading my current first gen Galaxy Tab 10.1. So far I can't see any.

FYI I use my tablet daily for both work and personal use.

Pretty monstrous specs, the resolution + next gen Exynos + (even more importantly) next gen Mali GPU make it something to be reckoned with. Sadly being a Nexus device it won't sport a card slot, which pretty much invalidates it for my use unless I want to carry my GoFlex Satellite around with it most of the time (which I may consider, did it with my 4S and it was a great way to negate crappy fixed internal storage capacitites).

It is a real shame there isn't a tiny OTG microUSB to microSD converter - thread discussing options are here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1764017

Wow... Must have...

I see a reference to multiple user accounts in 4.2, for a family based device this will be a welcome addition, definitely a selling point for me that's for sure

Interesting, I currently have an iPad 2 and use it for note taking on pdf's (uni student) and its brilliant.

I'm sure USB OTG will work, may require Root and something like Stick Mount from Chainfire (like the Nexus 7). I use USB OTG a lot, but I don't want to have to have it always connected to make a device usable.
