Nexus 10 goes on pre-order at Staples, taken apart elsewhere

The Nexus 10 stock at the Play Store was depleted pretty quickly when it launched, so it’s good to see the 10-inch Google tablet moving to other stores. Staples have it on pre-order right now, but unfortunately won’t start deliveries until two-to-three weeks.

Meanwhile, the tablet has been torn down, revealing what makes it tick (spoiler: plenty of Samsung-made parts).

Let’s look at the Staples deal first though – they only have the 32GB Nexus 10 right now and it’s priced at $499, matching the Play Store price. Deliveries are expected to start in 17-24 days, which is a pretty long wait and people might prefer to get it from the Play Store anyway.

We’ll be on the lookout for more retailers offering the Nexus 10 – just in case there are further issues with the Play Store or there‘s an extra perk. We’d appreciate a tip if you spot any deals.

The tablet gets its power from a Samsung Li-Ion battery with 9000mAh / 22.75Wh capacity. The processing power comes from a Exynos 5250 chipset and data is stored in flash memory manufactured by Samsung.
