    It's interesting how other rumours say the Nexus 5 will be released on the 31st. Nobody seems to know for sure.

    Google should skip the launch event and just release their new Android devices on the Play Store unannounced. The N5 and N10 will sell themselves!

    Well, judging by PCA's last advice I'd like this one to be real: Google Nexus 10 2 | release date, price and specs - PC Advisor

    I wish the people creating fake pictures of the new Nexus 10 would do a better job in Photoshop! It's easy to tell they are fake when you look closely.

    The latest rumour that PCA posted is definitely fake.

    Could this be a Nexus 8 or a badly Photoshopped Nexus 7?

    A Nexus 8? Mysterious tablet pictured in KitKat promotional material « Ars Technica

    Google's Android.com promotional site was revamped with the launch of the Nexus 5, and it seems that Google is already using it to drop hints about its next device. If you head to the Apps & Entertainment section of the new site and scroll down to the second large image, you'll see a picture of a woman holding a tablet that we've never seen before.

    Just to dig up an old-ish thread, it seems that there is quite a bit of talk now appearing on the net with unhappy bunnies bemoaning the fact that there is still no sign of the new Nexus 10.
    Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone and the Christmas rush is well underway, but still no sign of the new Nexus 10, or 9 if you are listening to certain rumours currently spreading.
    It's slowly turning out to bit a bit of a PR disaster for Google with some commenting on the rumour that Google wants to run down stocks of the current Nexus 10 before launching, which is a bit poor if you are waiting to buy.
    With the cut-off date for Christmas web orders fast approaching this isn't looking good for Google if they want a successful launch. If it does launch in the new year I suspect that it won't generate the sales they had expected.

    Perhaps Google aren't going to make another 10" tablet?

    LG are supposedly making a tablet (the V510) which is to become the Nexus 8.

    I did hear that Google had a moment when the iPad Air was released and that the 10" Nexus was being reworked before being released.

    Google have released the Nexus 8 Google Play Edition G Pad tablet! Sadly it's only available in the US.

    https://play.google.com/store/device...ls?id=lg_g_pad



    A white Nexus 7 and a Google Play Edition Sony Xperia Z Ultra have also appeared in the Play Store.

    Google are going to make a Nexus 8 tablet after all.

    Google shifts focus to 8-inch tablet market « Hexus

    With fierce competitors including the likes of Samsung, Dell and Acer and Amazon, Google's second generation Nexus 7 tablet demand has been affected as these and other vendors offer cheaper options for 7-inch models. In a reactive move Google is now planning to focus on the 8-inch tablet market from mid-2014, according to sources interviewed by Taiwan's DigiTimes.

    "Because most 7-inch Android tablets have already seen their price drop below NT$5,000 (£100), the second-generation Nexus 7, which is priced starting at US$229 (£140), is seeing that its demand is weaker than expected, especially compared to the first-generation model's six million unit shipments," said DigiTimes upstream supply chain sources.

    In order to break free from the packed 7-inch tablet market Google is rumoured to be focussing on an 8-inch alternative for 2014 and will also launch the 'Nexus 8' with a display to match that built-into Apple's iPad Mini 2 (a so so-called 'Retina' model).

    I hope this is true, i have been toying with the idea of buying a Nexus 10 when its released but i think 8 inch is the ideal size for a tablet so will definitely be holding off for that.

    Got an 8 inch Galaxy and it is the perfect size. Feels nice and large when watching films but fits in my pocket if needed.
