When a Wall Street Journal report came in few days ago in regards to Nexus 10, everyone assumed that Samsung would be the chosen one to craft next-gen Nexus 10 tablet device.
The source was trust worthy enough because it was Google's Sundar Pichai who had said to Amir Efrati that the software giant would make Nexus 10 2. Even the name of Samsung was tweeted by a reporter over at WSJ. Everything was sorted enough and even media never questioned to a report by the Wall Street Journal.
Now all of the sudden Geek has come up with a sensational report saying that Nexus 10 will likely to be made by Asus instead of Samsung.
The report says that the next-gen Nexus 10 manufactured by Asus should be available at the time of Holidays via Play store and Best Buy. The tablet could feature a high resolution display alongside Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Well, it's too early to speculate around Nexus 10 specifications.
Google shares a great chemistry with Asus from the time of first-gen Nexus 7. Now the Taiwanese giant once again manufactured Nexus 7 2 - thanks to the overwhelming response received from consumers. But recently a report suggested that Google would like to give contract to LG to manufacture Nexus 7 3.
LG has access to sophisticated display technology that's why Google is so anxious to work with G2 maker, while the South Korean giant also successfully manufactured Nexus 4 for Google. The rumor also says that LG is working on the successor to Nexus 4 , and the arrival is expected to be announce sometime around Holidays.
Now suddenly, the street is abuzz with rumors that Asus is the chosen manufacturer to manufacture Nexus 10. It is to be noted that the first-gen Nexus 10 went unnoticed. The hardware was brilliant, but unfortunately the tablet didn't fare well against iPad 4.
The reason for the demise of Nexus 10 was lack of compatible apps for large screen Android tablets. Another possible reason for not collaborating with Samsung is that the Galaxy S4 maker could be prepping a high-end tablet having 12.2-inch display to dethrone Apple's iPad Maxi. So Samsung would have backed out of bidding to manufacture next-version of Nexus 10.
Google is yet to launch first gen Nexus 10 in the Indian market. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates.
