    Here's my predicament - I want to get a new tablet and I'm torn between the newer LG G Pad 8.3 and the Nexus 10. I will mainly be using this tablet for streaming video/sports (i.e. MLB.TV package, NFL Sunday Ticket, Optimum app as a second TV in my living room). Is the Nexus 10 worth getting even though it'd a year old already? Is it still the best 10 inch Android tablet?

    Or should I go with a slightly smaller but much newer tablet like the G Pad 8.3?

    I just got one for my wife. I would have waited if they new ones were coming out in time for Christmas. Waiting is always an issue that we all face. There's waiting for better tech and features, waiting for a price decline, and waiting to avoid obsolescence. Sometimes you may not want to wait because you have particular needs and want to use the device now. In our case, my didn't have a tablet and was tired of hassling with the screen size on her smart phone. We now both have Nexus 10's and Nexus 4's. Everything syncs and getting setup was really easy even for a techno minus geezer. Having everything Google made it pretty painless. YMMV

    I bought a used one on eBay last week for really cheap and am extremely happy that I did so.

    I am over here from the HTC DNA forum. I realized after a year that my phone can create a hotspot so I can share my data to a tablet.

    Question, Do a lot of phones create hotspots and will Verizon shut off this feature when they realize I am piggy backing a tablet on my program without sending them 10 dollars a month?

    If Verizon does not care about this I am going to buy a tablet. I have narrowed my choice to a new N10, iPad Air or maybe a new Samsung if a good one is introduced at CES 2014. I would like at least 64 GB storage with expandable storage or 128 GB without. When I bought my phone, the advice I took was that 16 GB storage would be enough. Well one year into owning the DNA I am bumping into the storage limit. I attribute this to the fact that I love the DNA and I like all the new apps that have come out that I didi not know about. So if I get a tablet this will take the pressure off the DNA storage limit. Thats what I tell myself anyway.

    I am looking to you folks for your advice for a tablet, I have both windows 8.1 and a iMac at home so I can sync to any tablet out there and I run a android phone and probably will never run a iPhone.

    What can you add? and Thanks

    This. Maybe find a used one to hold you over. I picked one up on Craigslist. I'm in a big city, Phoenix, so there were several. Only wanted the cheaper 16gb, but found a 32 and got it for $230. At that price I don't mind selling it at a loss and getting the 10.2 if it comes out.

    I'm hoping Samsung/Google release something soon I'm in the market for a new tablet after finally selling that horridly slow iPad 3 I got a year ago. I missed out on a chance of a 32gb nexus 10 brand new for 274! Joys of monthly pay lol.

    I got the Nexus 10 for Xmas. Also thought about waiting until something new and hopefully lighter came out, but decided to just ask for it. Absolutely love it so far! If something new does come out, hubby can have this while I go for the newer model! Presuming I feel the newer model is actually better.
