Although there are only a couple of Nexus devices currently on the market from Google, that all looks set to change in the next couple of weeks or so. The rumor mill has been overloaded with speculation regarding several unspecified Nexus smartphones and tablets, including what’s being labeled as the Nexus 10.
With so little really known of the Nexus 10, it’s not surprising to see the latest shred of evidence manifest from a rather dubious source. EXIF data of a snap found on Picasa (EXIF data, by the way, is setting and scene data logged by a camera), suggests the Nexus 10 to be in existence.
We’re not taking this is as seriously as a more substantial leak, but the EXIF data suggests the image in question has been snapped using a "Nexus 10″ camera made by "Google," while also running software labeled “JVP12C”. As most of you will likely be aware, EXIF data can easily be manipulated, and in order to make a story out of nothing, such action has been taken in the past by those looking to fabricate a scoop.
With that said, there have been increasing murmurings with regards to the Nexus 10, which is expected to be a tablet and pack in a mightily impressive resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 or 299 pixels per-inch. It could, perhaps, be launching alongside the LG Nexus 4 on October 29th, although considering the flimsiness of the rumors at this point in time, I think it’s best we all remain calm and wait patiently for a more impressive piece of evidence to surface.
November has long since been highlighted as a potential release frame for a glut of Nexus-branded devices, and given the success of the Samsung-made Galaxy Nexus and the ASUS-manufactured Nexus 7, it’s little surprise to see the blogosphere abuzz as everybody tries to figure out which rumor matches which device.
When the picture begins to look a bit more vivid and the slightly-more-than-suggestive evidence begins to leak, we will of course cover everything here at Redmond Pie, so ensure you stay tuned to our coverage.
As a side note, am I the only one slightly taken aback (for the better, of course) by the thought of a 2,560 x 1,600 res Nexus slab?
