Nexus 10 is currently the sole 10-inch tablet which comes pre-loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat. While the tablet failed to create a huge impact on the market since its October launch previous year, it still did cater to a specific set of people. Many of these people live by a motto which goes something along the lines of “bigger is better.” Not too surprisingly, the Nexus 10 has now been confirmed to be discontinued once the current Play Store stock runs out. Speculations suggest that this could be an indicator of a soon to release Nexus 10 2013/2014.
Nexus 10 16GB Listing Description Disappears from the Play Store
As noted by some users on /r/Android (reddit), Nexus 10′s Google Play Store listing description is no where to be found. So obviously, everybody got curious and one such curious blog named TechnoBlimp reached out to Google to get clarification on the matter.
Though not through an official channel, a Google spokesperson responded that the company “does not plan to restock the device once it sells out.”
Now, this could either mean that Google is simply vacating its shelves for the highly rumored Nexus 10 2013 or, that the search giant is now simply done with the Nexus 10 series and there are not going to be any sequels released in the future. Without an official statement, it would be too soon to comment about what is exactly going to happen, but on a more personal note, the former case seems to be the most plausible.
Nexus 10 to be Replaced by an 8-in or 9-in variant?
There is also another rumor going around the blocks, which says that instead of a new-gen Nexus 10, Google could be developing an 8-in or 9-in variant, and will reveal it during Cyber Monday. This rumour has no definite foundation, so we advise to take this rumor with a grain of salt.
Whatever the case might be, something is definitely going to happen with the Nexus 10, only time will tell.
Edit: Nexus 10 16GB is now out of stock. We’re expecting the 32GB variant to be out of stock soon.
