Delayed Google Nexus 10 2 release date prompted higher expectations from waiting fans, according to Android Origin.
Android 4.4.1 KOT49E update is available for Nexus 10.
To the dismay of many Google fans, Nexus 10 2 still has not appeared in the market. Reliable tipster @evleaks tweeted October last year that Google's 10-inch tablet is coming soon with ASUS behind it. It hinted that the device was supposed to be released in November following the tablet's launch. However, the tablet skipped the alleged release date. It was followed by other supposed launch dates but the tablet is still missing in action.
Google still has not revealed the definite release date of the Google's full-fledged tablet. Latest rumours claimed that Nexus 10 2 will be released either in August at the company's annual I/O Conference. Other speculations claimed that the 10-inch metal slab will be introduced at a much later date.
Therefore, consumers tend to expect more from the tablet. Other consumers tend to look for other tablet alternatives for the said Android device. Some of the famous alternatives are Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and Nexus 10's brother - Nexus 7.
Google still has not confirmed which company it will work with in making the successor of Google Nexus 10. The first generation was made by Samsung.

Some of Google Nexus 10 2 rumoured features are 10.1-inch size with a 2560 x 1600 resolution and protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Under the hood, there will be 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor or the NVIDIA Tegra 4, 3GB RAM and Adreno 330 GPU. For storage, there will be the standard 16 and 32 GB variants.
