Probably not Google choosing that is to maintain the low cost.

199 to 229.

Full HD Panel, Back Camera for 30 bucks?

Cut costs to the minimal.

But Snapdragon 600 is pretty powerful if they are using that.
Developer support will be much better also..

I'm personally quite glad it is NOT a Tegra processor. The international version of the HTC one X had the Tegra 3, and despite being quad core did not deliver better performance than the dual core Qualcomm version at the time.

If its LTE equipped, the LTE might not work in Singapore.

Yea I hope so too.. The tegra 3, I read , is the main cause behind the infamous kernel wake lock plaguing nexus 7....

Haha I think there will be loads of used nexus 7 going around very very soon. Cheap Bargains for a device that's only a year old. Haha sounds like a good plan you have! Since you already using a note 2, did you also consider note 8?

Yes... I have to admit that despite the availability issues for the Nexus 10, it's actually a pretty cheap 10" for the specs.
i am using one right nao!
i have to say one word: SHIOK
just so you know im an ex iPad, iPad mini, samsung tab and note user
and coming from experience, nexus 10 is GODLIKE
and looking at nexus 7's specs i must say nexus 10 IS STILL GODLIKE
ppi is similar +/- 30
display and bezel, nexus 10 won cos less bezel around and bigger display
=))

One gripe about general android tablets as a whole excluding the Samsung tablets is the lack of "true" multi-tasking.

The screen asset is so big to allow at least 2 apps to run side by side.
or even 4 if talking about 10in screen.

Samsung got their own exclusive Multi-Window thingy.
Sony have a somewhat multi-tasking pop-up widgets.

All other tablets dun not have any.

Alternative solution for now is flashing ParanoidAndoid with Halo if that tablet has that custom ROM available.

Ability to run ANY 2 apps simultaneously is really damn useful, which directly mimics normal desktop/laptop computing.

I have only this need on very few occasions, most of the time is because I need to copy something from one app and paste it on another. Why do you need to run 2 apps side by side? I am not saying that it is not useful, just can't think of much use cases.
