There has been a lot of speculation about the Nexus 10 2013, particularly about its release, because Google hasn’t dropped any hints about the tablet as yet. So far the company has released refreshed models of its Nexus smartphone and Nexus 7 tablet, it is yet to unveil a refreshed Nexus 10. Some believe that the tablet might be manufactured by LG, and previously a codename had emerged which was attached with the tablet. Though as per a service manual that has surfaced in China, the LG V510 might be the much rumored Nexus 8 and not the Nexus 10 as initially believed.
The service manual reveals that LG V510 has an 8.3 inch display, so this can’t obviously be the Nexus 10 if the manual is indeed legitimate. The V510 is said to have a 1,920×1,200 pixel resolution display with a 2GB RAM, 4,600mAh battery, 5 megapixel rear and 1.3 megapixel front facing camera. The dimensions of the V510 are quite similar to LG’s G Pad 8.3 tablet, so there’s a possibility that this might be regional variant of that tablet, because the leaked service manual doesn’t contain any Nexus branding. Google hasn’t even confirmed the manufacturing partner for the Nexus 10 tablet, it was rumored that the tablet might be unveiled today on Cyber Monday, but so far nothing has come out from Mountain View.

Microsoft has seemingly taken the move to work with a rapid release cycle for its Windows operating system, and ‘Blue’ happens to be one of their end results. Well, what comes after ‘Blue’? One thing is for sure – Microsoft has not decided to fall on a range of colors, but rather, has chosen the name “Threshold”, and Microsoft intends to target a release date sometime later in Spring of 2015.
Mary Jo Foley was the one behind this particular bit of news, but apart from the name “Threshold”, it remains to be seen just what will be revealed in the updates. One thing could very well happen though – the release might just work to make sure that the family of Windows-based products will be brought closer, and among them will include the likes of Windows Phone, Windows, and the Xbox One game console. According to Mary Jo Foley, “Threshold” will build upon cross-platform commonality for “high value activities”, as Microsoft works to make sure that its key platforms will be able to interact with one another better than before. This sure as heck sounds like quite a plan, but will Microsoft be able to see it through eventually? Only time will be able to tell.
