One of the most talked about Samsung tablets is a model that doesn't even ship under its brand, but under that of Google: the Nexus 10, which used to be sold through Google Play, only to be taken down some time ago.
Officially, the Nexus 10 was released back in October 2012, but the launch ended up crashing and burning for some yet unexplained reason.
Like the rest of the Nexus series, the device has been hard to get, mostly because, depending on who you ask, the device disappeared from the Google Play store abruptly, or never showed up there.
Fortunately, for US customers at least, the tablet is once again up for order through the Play Store, in 32 GB and 16 GB. The links are as follows: Nexus 10 16GB and 32GB.
Shipments won't magically be completed instantly though. While people can order the tablet, the courier will only deliver it in 1 or two weeks.
For those that want a reminder about what the product is and what it can do, Google Nexus 10 is a 10-inch slate with a display resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.
A dual-core Samsung Exynos central processing unit (ARM CPU) acts as the heart of the slate, while a Mali-T604 GPU does the media playback and game rendering.
Curiously, this availability report made by Android Police comes even though a similar one was made in early January. Availability seems to be an on-and-off thing.
One can only wonder if the same will happen to the next-generation Nexus 10, the one that will presumably have an 8-core graphics processing unit and a quad-core CPU.
We already know of prospective buyers that have decided, after months of all these ordering difficulties, to just wait for the upgrade. The updated tablet is set for MWC 2013 launch (Mobile World Congress in February).
