The second entry in Google's line of Nexus tablets, Nexus 10 is designed by Google and manufactured by Samsung. It features a plastic unibody frame and a display with 300 PPI. Google's Play store has been updated with HD content to support the new high resolution display. The device has a removable panel on the back that can be replaced with special covers specific to the device.

Description

Adding some minor updates to the tablet that started it all, the 4th generation iPad drops the classic 30-pin dock connector for a Lightning port and upgrades to an A6X processor that offers double the graphics performance of the A5X. The tablet remains the same beyond that, with the same form factor and display as the 3rd generation model.

Surface is Microsoft's first tablet, and it's designed around Windows 8. Surface comes in two distinct versions, one model running Windows RT and one running Windows 8 Pro. The Windows RT model has an ARM processor, and though it still has the classic desktop, it loses the ability to run legacy apps. Microsoft is heavily featuring their Touch Cover for Surface, a thin screen cover that doubles as full keyboard. Surface can also accept stylus input.
