Deal: £290 Samsung Nexus 10 tablet

Until the launch of the Samsung ATIV Q and the ATIV Book 9 Plus, the Google Nexus 10 (GT-P8110) tablet, manufactured by Samsung, had the highest resolution of any mobile and fixed devices in the world of technology (bar 4K monitors). At 2,560 x 1,600 pixels, its 10in display offered well over four million pixels and a pixel density of 300ppi.

At 8.9mm thick and weighing just over 600g, it packs a dual-core Samsung Exynos 5 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage, both front and rear cameras and runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Samsung also bundled advanced MIMO Wi-Fi which promises faster than normal throughput.

We were a little bit disappointed though by the rather mundane design of the Nexus 10, especially when it comes to the thickness of the bezel, which may be explained by the fact that Google (and Samsung) expects users to use their opposing thumbs to hold the tablet in place.
