Along with Nexus 4 orders from Google Play arriving in Australia, FedEx is also working over-time to deliver the Samsung built Nexus 10 to their new Australian owners. A number of people on Twitter are reporting that they have received their new tablet. We haven’t actually seen the tablet as yet but from my first impressions of the tablet, it’s a decent tablet, has a nice soft touch back on it very similar to the Nexus 7 and the front facing speakers look and sound brilliant and the screen is simply stunning.

Now, what do you think of your Nexus 10? What is your main use case for a 10″ Tablet?

Pretty good, fast delivery. Crashed a couple times especially with Chrome but otherwise it’s working pretty well. Feels great too – next step is to find a nice case for it but unfortunately there aren’t any good cases around.

I dislike the big phone UI, the lack of codecs (compared to Samsung devices) and I think the quick settings could be improved (I’m used to them being toggles from Galaxy devices). Other than that I’m really enjoying it so far. Super fast, great multi tasking, drains battery like crazy though!

Just a tip to other new Nexus 10 fellows, I purchased a ”
Micro USB Host Mode OTG Cable” for $4 and a “SanDisk Genuine 32GB Cruzer Fit mini USB Flash” for $22 and now I watch all the movies I want using an app called “nexus Media Importer”. now my internal storage is only used for apps as my docs are stored in the cloud… hope this helps others

Got mine this morning, just opened it then. Did anyone else have trouble with wifi? never had an issue connecting devices to my wifi before, this simply refuses to connect, and the setup wont let me do anything else until it does

Have you tried using the another wifi source, i.e. hotspot from your phone? Might just be a band issue.

Got mine since Friday evening and can’t stop playing with it all weekend! These are my early impression: The tablet actually looks good, all matte black and comes across as more coherent design-wise than the Tab 2 10.1. The dual speaker setup is a nice detail and to me represents a way forward for tablet speakers (please no more back facing mono-speakers!) – they’re suitably loud and clear too. Solid feel overall, nice grippy rubber-like finish back, although I feel the removable dimpled soft-touch texture at the top should have been the main material as it feels really good, better… Read more »

AFAIK, the front glass is supposed to be laminated to the LCD. There should be no air gap. Btw, how do large PDF files render? Is there any performance difference between the stock browser and Chrome? Is it usable in portrait mode?

If it is laminated, it is certainly nowhere as close to the glass surface as the Nexus 7 or the iPad. PDFs render well enough but is probably highly dependant on the app used. Chrome has minor scrolling issues atm as some users reported stuttering and this is true to an extent so far. Google is sure to throw in another update soon. That said, dolphin browser to me seems best to handle flash and offers overall smoother experience. I primarily browse in portrait and in this manner the tab is not unwieldy as some alleged. The grippy back helps… Read more »

I thought that flash is gone from 4.1 onwards. Good to know that it’s useable in portrait mode. (IMO, the ipad has a better aspect ratio for it, but didn’t have the resolution for it until this year.)

You can still side-load the flash apk and it’ll run fine in browsers like Dolphin and Firefox. 🙂

Got mine about an hour ago, no wifi access at work or I’d be going nuts on it. 🙂
My main intended use is for ebooks and comic books, will see how it goes.

Comics look fantastic in perfectview and books in moon+.
The facebook app looks terrible (but we knew that).
The browser isn’t as snappy as I was expecting, and the lack of the old default browser sucks (I used to use it just for flash heavy sites).
I love how light it is, I was laying back in bed cruising forums and reading for hours last night – which brings up battery life; fantastic.
Very happy with my purchase. 🙂

So Chrome is now the only browser by default?
