    To me it is even if I'm waiting for a replacement. It just depends on what your looking for in a tablet

    I bought a Nexus 10 as my first tablet... didn't really need a tablet, but you now how it goes. Anyway I love it. I'm tightly tied into Google products, and when I logged in, all my gmail, Calendar, etc were all there. It also automatically downloaded all my Android apps from my phone (which I didn't necessarily want, and not sure if they always sync between devices or if I can prevent some by device, still figuring that out).

    Anyway, I'm still learning what it can do, but so far, I love it.

    This is my first tablet as well and I've only had my S3 for a few months. I've got my nexus 10 to do all my main web surfing on and am loving it so far. I'm just getting used to the swipe keyboard, which I'm even finding a bit quicker than on my phone.

    Loving it so far.

    I just got mine yesterday for Christmas and I'm in love with it. I've tried several android tablets and the iPads and this is by far the best one available IMO.

    The Nexus 10 is good. I just got it and the experience isn't as smooth as the 7 nor is the app ecosystem there like the 7. I use the ten for media consumption (movies look AMAZING on it) and Web browsing. The app ecosystem is getting better, for example they just released tapatalk hd for tablets and it looks great on it.

    i bought one today at WalMart. i was looking on Amazon and for some crazy reason, they are selling the 16 Gig version for $599?? WTF!! somebody on there said try walmart and i'm glad i did. all of the Wichita walmarts were sold out but the Derby store said limited stock. Went there and they must have had 5 in the case, 32 Gigs for $499. sweet deal. only been playing with it for a while but the screen is nice! i only wish that the 3rd party applications would start to make hardware for them. I was so close to buying an iPad just so i could get a Mackie DL1608. i'll keep hounding them (Mackie) to show Android some love....i really wish there were more Music and recording apps available. Microphone etc. i'll keep wishing and looking....but, the Nexus 10 is definately worth it I think.

    just got mine for christmas too. Already have the 10.1 note and had 7 inchers in the past but never a Nexus device so this will be my first. To be hones if any one other that Sammy made it i may not have asked for it. I am a Sammy fan. So far I like it just need to get use to stock but I might just root it and see if theres something like TWZ for it lol Got the 32GB one so i don't have to worry about space. Love my wife for this gift more now lol. Things is wish I was able to use and do with it is All Share Cast. I read some where that a MIMO Router is better for this tablet so I went and picked one up today. I'll test the speeds before and after to see how it does. All of our phones and tablets run 2.4 & 5 Ghz so i wanted a new router anyway. Hopefully they come out wit ha keyboard dock for this think. I do find that the speakers don't sound as loud as my 10.1 note does. Anyone else find them low or is there a setting im missing?

    Coming from a Motorola Xoom 4GLTE, I can honestly say that this is a HUGE upgrade. The most noticeable upgrades are the display, depth, and weight. Google and Samsung definitely got this unit right. But I have to admit I am very curious to see what Motorola has coming down the pipe on their next full sized tablet.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    So I just got my Nexus 10 32Gb tablet and currently don't have a smartphone. Buuuuut, this tablet now has made me want to go purchase an Android smartphone! If I do go buy an Android smartphone with a Verizon data plan, does the nexus 10 have a free app so I can get wifi from my smartphone and allow the use of my Nexus 10 in my vehicle? I apologize for this very noob question, smartphones/apps are a complete new thing for me. I've been living in the dark ages!

    If you like the pure Google experience then yes I think it is the best. I had a galaxy tab 10.1 and I found it to be laggy and slow. Next came the nexus 7 and although it was good for the price the screen was just too sub par for me. I traded up to the nexus 10 and it was well worth the money. Everyone has a different perspective on such things but I can't imagine anyone looking for a great tablet and not liking this one. Unless of course you prefer an iPad which is great too. Personally I've always preferred android.

    On a side note it's a shame wall mart doesn't display these because once you get this baby in your hands you'll be sold :thumbup:

    The Wi-Fi Xoom sold me on the Nexus devices (it was a Google Experience Device) the Nexus is everything the Xoom was, but faster and lighter.

    I have a RAZR M and a Nexus 10. My cell provider is Verizon, and the phone has a bundled app for using the phone as a hotspot or tether. It is easy to set up.

    You will be able to use the wifi on your N10 to connect to the internet using your phone if your phone has hotspot capability. Some phones/cell carriers have thus feature enabled and as part of the cost while others may charge an extra monthly fee and/or software download. I am not familiar with all carriers. Check with the store when you buy your phone. Good luck!

    Excellent. Bundled app so you can use it as a hotspot via a free app or you pay extra a month on your phone bill? This Nexus 10 is like having a computer, without the hassle. Great stuff.

    Thank you, I need to do more research on this "root" everyone keeps talking about. Which exact wifi teather app do you use to connect your smartphone to your Nexus tablet? I did a search in the Googe Store on my Nexus10 and so many options came up. Thank you.

    Thank you! My smartphone will continue to be Verizon, guess it's finally time to start seeing what phones have hotspot capability WITHOUT paying extra per month. Already hate the fact i'm going to have to pay extra for a data plan but I guess it's time to step up to the rest of the world.

    Get an hotspot app called FoxFi, it is free unless you 'upgrade' for around 6 bucks...Works great and if you have your unlimited plan still that means its all free!!!!

    You don't Have to root if you don't want to or know how to. But I've got a nexus 7 unlocked and WiFi/BT Teather comes standard in settings
