iPad 4 vs. Nexus 10: Specs Shootout


On Monday, Google unveiled the larger version of the Nexus 7 tablet – the Nexus 10 to compete with Apple’s full-sized iPad, which has been dominating the larger tablet market.

The Nexus 10 comes with a stunning 10.055-inch display with 2560-by-1600 resolution,  a dual-core ARM Cortex A15 processor with 2GB RAM, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera and lots more.

Google has also priced the Nexus 10 aggressively, the 16GB Google Nexus 10 is available for $399 and the 32GB model for $499, which makes it $100 cheaper than the iPad 4.

Apple seems to have preempted the move by launching the 4th generation iPad last week, which is essentially a tweaked version of the 3rd generation iPad, which comes with a faster 1.4 GHz A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera, expanded 4G LTE support and the new Lightning port.

So how does Google’s Nexus 10 stack up against Apple’s iPad 4, which currently has more than 50% of the market share?

Here’s a comparison chart where we have compared the hardware specifications of Nexus 10 with Apple’s iPad.

So if you were to forget about the operating system, ecosystem and user experience and go purely based on the tech specs, which one will you buy?


Comparison table updated to include the pricing details of 4th generation iPad Wi-Fi+Cellular models and also clarify that GPS is available only on the Wi-Fi+Cellular model in case of the iPad. Thanks everyone for the feedback.
