Announced last month, the Samsung-made Nexus 10 has a 10.1-inch Super PLS display, compared to the 7-inch Nexus 7 that was released in July.
The premium tablet has a screen resolution of 2560×1600, making it the world's highest resolution tablet, with a display at 300 pixels per inch. This beats the third/fourth generation iPad's 9.7 inch Retina display, which has a 2,048×1,536 resolution and 264ppi.
The Nexus 10 also comes with a 5-megapixel rear camera capable of shooting video at 1080p resolution, along with a 1.9-megapixel front snapper for video calling.
Alongside the Nexus 4, the Nexus 10 runs the very latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, introducing new features such as multiple user accounts, an updated version of Google Now and 360° panoramic photo stitching called "Photo Sphere".
All this will be available for the budget price of £319 for the 16GB version, or £389 for the 32GB model. Both are WiFi-only, and both will be available on November 13.
So here is our roundup of some of the latest reviews for Google's iPad killer:
However, they criticise the look of the Nexus 10 and say that the "biggest problem" is the lack of storage, as there is no microSD and the range only goes up to 32GB. Another issue is the lack of 3G/4G.
"We fully expect a 3G (and probably 4G) version will be made available at some point - maybe even quite soon, but we can only work with what we've got and right now we've got a tablet that can't connect to the internet in a substantial amount of places," they add.
They say that the display is "uber-sharp and bright", with a 16:9 aspect ratio that is "made for movies". But the reviewer also flags up that running the Nexus 10 and iPad side by side, most users would be "hard-pressed to spot the difference" in screen quality.
Whilst the review concludes that the Nexus 10 is a "viable alternative" to the fourth generation iPad, it notes that the better "quantity and quality" of tablet apps in the Apple ecosystem "will still tip the balance for a lot of tablet buyers".
Again, though, they note the Achilles Heel for Android tablets is the lack of apps built for the bigger screen. Wired says that even though the iPad has technically inferior specs, it is "apps that make the tablet".
"Apple's iPad, which on paper is outmatched by the Nexus 10 in nearly every way, is still a more compelling product because it has 275,000 iPad-specific apps sitting in Apple's App Store just waiting to be downloaded, touched, tapped and swiped," the review says.
Performance-wise, the site notes the Nexus 10's processor lags behind some smartphones, including the Galaxy Note 2 and HTC One X+, in benchmark tests. But it adds that in general use it holds up well across HD video playback, web browsing and gaming, while battery life is impressive.
Overall, the reviewer is broadly positive on the technical performance of the Nexus 10, but agrees with the Guardian and Wired that the dearth of apps in the Android ecosystem puts it behind Apple's iPad. It does say, however, that the aggressive pricing of the slate by Google will hopefully create a big enough market to encourage more developers to take the plunge.
