Google announces Google Nexus 10 tablet with Android 4.2

Google Nexus 10To go along with its new Nexus 4 smartphone, Google announced the Nexus 10 tablet. Billed as “a premium entertainment device,” it was developed together with Samsung. As expected, it comes with a 10.1-inch WQXGA (2560×1600) display. With Android 4.2 preloaded, it also introduces support for multiple users with switching on the lockscreen.
