    I disagree with this sentence. Yes, I did have some random reboots and force closes with JB 4.2.1, but 4.2.2 update DID fix those problems on my Nexus 10. Nexus 10 should be smoother than Nexus 7. I'm not saying Nexus 7 is a bad device, it's actually a great device. But Nexus 10 should be smoother than Nexus 7 since it comes with Exynos 5250 and it's 1.7 GHz dual-core.

    I think it might be a bit harsh to not recommend it to others just cause of your own personal cons for the devices. Also the reboots have been pretty much dealt with after the last update.

    I agree with the lack of accessories tho.

    I still get force closes from apps but the random reboots not as much. I still stand by my expereince that the Nexus 7 runs smoother. The Nexus 10 comes with a nice proccessor but it's a dual-core vs. the Nexus 7 which is quad-core. I'm guessing this may be the reason it runs smoother since they run the same version of Android. I just know to me it seems to run better and not as choppy as the N10.

    I don't think it's harsh at all. The OP asked for our opinions. Most people I meet are non-technical and I want them to have the best experience when I reccomend something. IMO the Nexus 7 or Ipad would provide that. I do admit it's been a long time since I"ve had a random reboot but, I don't use the N10 enough to be sure.

    I knew some of you would disagree, I was just trying to provide a honest opinion. That opinion of course is going to be from my personel experience. I love Android and wouldn't be here if i didn't. I'm actually thinking about factory resetting the N10 to see if that makes it run better. Sometimes that does help.

    Just cause those are your cons doesn't mean others will have them and they're small ones anyway, so yeah it is a bit harsh if you're never gonna recommend it to anyone just cause of that seeing how great of a device it is and how much those people might like it. Your choice though, it's not gonna make or break the device after all.

    Random reboots aren't a small con.

    Yes, random reboots aren't a small con. BUT like I said, 4.2.2 update already fixed that.

    The first N10 I got turned out to be defective, and it took me a while to figure out that was going on. Since I got my RMA unit I have been 100% happy w/ the Nexus 10!

    Personally, that would still be an issue for me. even if it extremely rare it would **** me off(but I never had that problem with my N10)

    Nexus 7 has Tegra 3 which is 4 A9 cores. Nexus 10 has Krait, two A15 cores. Despite the 7 having more cores, the A15 trounces it.

    Came from a line of iPads. Switched my phone to HTC One and shortly afterwards to a Nexus 10. Great decision. I love the keyboard - this swiping motion for entries is just awesome. I just wish the Nexus 4 had LTE, then my whole mobile world would have been nexus-based.

    A little bit incorrect. The Nexus 10 has Samsungs's Exynos 5250 Dual Core processor. The Kriat CPU is from Qualcomm, and isn't a full fledge A15 core, but is often considerd compareable since it has allot in common with the A-15 design from ARM. In a straight up comparison a A-15 core will beat Kriat. With that said though it isn't by such a huge margin to make a big deal about it. The really big deal with the Exynos is the Mali 625 GPU core that allows 3D at such a high resolution.

    Also Kriat and the A-15 based Exynos CPU's will pretty much destroy any tegra 3 device in raw performance.

    Tegra processors are way to over rated.

    The biggest letdown for me is the build quality. Every time I pick up the device, the backside caves in with a popping sound :-/

    Otherwise, mine's perfect

    Well yes and no. I really don't think you can beat a good tegra optimized app when the CPU is in the same class as everything else. So when you had the Exynos 4412, the Snapdragon S3 and then other compareable Coretex A9 based CPU's, they were top notch. The problem is for tegra to compete with Krait and the A-15 based Exynos CPU's we need the new tegra 4 SOC. The biggest thing Tegra has for it is Nvidia's strong push to support developer optimisations. None of the other SOC's have really good support for Graphic support optimaztion. And sometimes the OEM's like Samsung almost do the darndest to upset developers by not providing everything external developers need to really optimize for there platform.

    I don't get that. Mine is built pretty tough, and definately doesn't feel that frail. The original Galaxy tab kind of did that when I lookd it. It is the main reason I ended up returning it and just keeping a xoom.

    It's called jail breaking bro. Besides the iPad is more of an entertainment device and it excels at that.It also excels as my note taker because pages syncs across my MacBook and iPad.

    Even with jailbreaking it still falls short in some areas though.
