The Nexus 10 Hands-On: Solid Tablet, But Not Cheap Enough Against iPad?

nexus10-1 I've been testing Google's new Nexus 10 tablet for the past few days, and there's plenty to love. It's fast, has a great screen and nice sound. There are plenty of the key apps I like. It offers content galore through Google Play. But at the same price as the basic iPad and only $100 less than the iPad Retina, it'll face a challenge to woo customers away.
