Do you process huge datasets or run your database server on your tablet? Do you really care how fast your tablet is past its ability to load webpages fast and play the best 3D games available from Google Play?
I'm sure that Android app devs will eventually come out with games that can only be played if you have the Nexus 10 or a device with equivalent specs, but right now people aren't going to alienate the majority of their customers to only sell games to Nexus 10 owners. The TF700T is actually outclassed in the GPU department by the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, too. My argument is that you can play any game you find in the market and enjoy the performance of the TF700T. You can watch 1080p movies in actual 1080p because the tablet has a 1920x1200 screen (Super IPS+, which is amazingly bright and visible out in sunlight). Anything faster or with higher resolution just isn't needed at this point in order to get all the fun and use that is currently available out of a tablet.
I'm not trying to suggest that the Nexus 10 isn't a fantastic tablet. A lot of its specs are mindblowing (I haven't seen even a desktop monitor less than 27" that has a resolution of 2560x1600). I just don't feel like I should have to reverse-engineer a USB OTG port to get features that should just be standard on a tablet that costs $400 (yeah, not all 10" tablets from the major companies have a microSD card slot, but they should!).
I'd be willing to consider selling off my TF700T to raise the funds to buy a Nexus 10 if it had some sort of keyboard situation available (something like maybe a bluetooth keyboard built into a shell or a case that can hold both the tablet and a bluetooth keyboard) and if it had some ability to offer some kind of external storage (microSD slot, etc). As it stands, I still feel like I have the absolute best product on the market for my needs.

I completely agree with everything you said here. I spend that much on a tablet I would like the "option" to use an SD card. Now maybe a dock will come out in the near future that may allow that but I highly doubt that since it seems google really wants cloud storage to be used with their devices. Also the fact that many apps are not yet optimized for the resolution of the Nexus 10.

I'm still not sure what to do though. I thought of just getting the TF700T for now and allow the Nexus 10 time to mature. Its a very powerful piece of hardware and will open up the gate for more tablets just like it to become available. I will take another look that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 also since maybe that might be better then the Transformer Infinity.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 does have a better GPU according to a review I saw. I didn't at all pay attention to what they said about the quad-core Exynos processor at 1.4GHz. I believe that processor is one of the A15 chips, rather than the A9-based Tegra 3 T33. I'm not exactly sure what that means as far as performance is concerned... the Tegra 3 in the Infinity is clocked really high (it's 1.7GHz if the processor is using a single core or 1.6GHz for 2-4 cores). The Note 10.1 also gets an additional boost in 3D gaming fps rate over the Infinity simply because it has a 1280x800 display, so it doesn't have to draw as many pixels as the Infinity.

I would have definitely chosen the Note 10.1 if I preferred to take notes by hand rather than typing or if I was interested in using it for artistic endeavors. I'm more of a "hacking away at an ssh terminal" kinda guy than a "digital painter". I do wish that I could have gotten Adobe Photoshop Touch with my tablet and a neat digitizer pen for those random times when graphic design urges hit me, but those urges are rare compared to how often I'm logged in to one of my home computers or servers.

It's too bad these companies haven't gotten together and mashed all their best features into one uber-tablet. I'd spend all that extra money to buy it. smile.gif

The Nexus 10's screen is much much better than all tablet screens.

The Nexus 10's 300PPI 1600p PLS screen is amazing. I've seen one myself and it totally destroys the iPad's display.

Google Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 sold out
Google's Nexus 4 smartphone and Nexus 10 tablet are sold out

By Chris Martin | PC Advisor | 05 December 12


Google's 8GB Nexus 4 has sold out on the Play Store once again after going back on sale yesterday. It has also sold out of the Nexus 10 tablet.
Google put its Nexus 4 smartphone, made by LG, back on sale yesterday at 5pm. Within hours the £239 8GB model had sold out, as expected. The phone originally went on sale on 13 November and sold out within half an hour. See also: Google LG Nexus 4 vs Apple iPhone 5 comparison review.
Those lucky enough to hear the news in time and bag a Nexus 4 were given a 4-5 week shipping estimate, despite the fact the Play Store described it elsewhere as 'shipping soon'.
Those wanting the £279 16GB model can still do so at the time of writing. However, shipping time has been increased to 5-6 weeks so none will be arriving in time for Christmas. Group test: what's the best Android phone?
Google has also sold out of its Samsung made Nexus 10 tablet in both 16GB and 32GB models which cost £319 and £389 respectively. All models of the Nexus 7remain available. See also: What tablet should I buy? iPad, Kindle Fire HD, Nexus 7
It's unknown when the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 will be available again, but we'll let you know as soon as we hear.

no micro sd card is such a bummer. my tf700+ keyboard had the full size usb, micro sd, full size sd and the dock was an extra 4 hours battery. sold it off because i no longer needed it since i bought a macbook but im waiting now for a 1600p tab with extended storage. its just not fair to pay that much for a nexus 10 with no added benefits.

The 32GB version of the Nexus 10 is more than enough.

Maybe for you but not necessarily for him. If you want to play a lot of high quality games you'll chew through your storage way too fast. Or if you want to store a lot of 1080p movies or music.

Most people don't need more than 32GB on a tablet.

People use their phones or MP3 players for music. Some people may watch movies on their tablets but they store 20 movies in there.
