Just in case you were still doubting the existence of the Google Nexus 10 tablet despite a few leaks here and there, here’s something for you. Something that will put your mind at ease – it’s real.
The Nexus 10 is real. Vic Gundotra is Google’s SVP of Engineering, and generally known as the guy in charge of Google+. He posted a couple of images to that particular social network today, and both of those say that ‘Nexus 10′ is the ‘camera’ that took them. Don’t pay any attention to the low resolution of these images, as they may have been resized prior to being uploaded to Google+.
Now sure, you can easily fake EXIF data. But would a Google vice-president essentially troll the mobile world by doing such a thing? We don’t think so either.
What’s likely happening here (be sure this was no mistake!) is that Google’s trying to steal just a teeny tiny bit of thunder from Microsoft which launched Windows 8 today and Apple which has seen great pre-order numbers for its new iPads – and all that to get us ‘in the mood’ for Google’s event on Monday, in which we’re supposedly going to see the Nexus 4 and a 32 GB Nexus 7 alongside the Nexus 10.
