Nexus 10 now or wait for Tegra 4 tablets

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Planning on picking up a Nexus 10 w/ my return. Will be my first tablet (I've wanted a tablet forever, just never had the cash). I know they showed off some Tegra 4 devices at CES,; are T4 tabs like right around the corner or should I go ahead w/ the Nexus 10?

I want the nexus 10 also, but not knowing when/if they'll put the tegra 4 in the nexus tablets kinda sucks. Don't wanna buy it now and they announce it'll be releasing soon with upgraded tegra 4.

The nexus 7 has the tegra 3, the n10 doesn't have any tegra chip so I couldn't even begin to think what they will do.

Wait for something better. I had went through 3 Nexus 10's, all were plagued by atrocious backlight bleed. Not only that but the A15 that it uses is fast but it still struggles with the resolution, my N4 feels 10x better to use. I sent it back for a refund after it was all over and picked up an N7 to hold me over until something better comes out.

That does make a lot of since, if they put the t4 in the n10 it would perform way better. I loved my n7 but stopped using it after I got my note 2, I would like a bigger tablet though and only nexus.

I wasn't really impressed with the Tegra 3's performance when I had my Nexus 7. The Exynos5 in my Nexus 10 is pretty snappy so far. Feels better than my Nexus 7 did. That's saying quite a bit seeing as the Exynos5 is pushing a 1600p resolution.

in my opinion I'd just wait for the tegra 4 tabs, my nexus 7 is beautiful for the price and the nexus 10 is even better but they are getting older every day but saving up for a brand new tegra 4 tab would justify the price of waiting, (assuming it turns out to be as powerful as anticipated!)

So general consensus is wait so far. Any idea when they'll show their face? I know Vizio showed off a really nice tab at CES, but there's no release date or price yet. Any others?
