Judging from how cjl1983 speaks, I doubt he'd take your kind advice and revisit the Nook HD+.
Let him be happy with his Nexus 10 and us with our CM10.1 Nook HD+, at 1/4 of the N10 price.
Having said that, I'd grab an N10 when it's on fire sale, sometime soon: N10 is not selling as well as N7 (price dictates sales) and new N10 will come out soon.
Seeing smaller shops (e.g.: ebay sellers) starting do dump their N10 inventory, is clear sign of what new thing to come.
Maybe I just got a defective device but the lag was unbearable. Really, really bad. I'm glad yours works for you, I thought the Nook HD+ would be a great buy, but it didn't work for me.
At the same time, I don't own the N10 anymore either, the N10 isn't worth paying $220+ more than the Nook HD+. I wouldn't bother with either of them at the moment. It is worth $100 more so an N10 16gb at $250 would tempt me.
To the person who asked what tablet I was happy with, after returning the iPad mini when it was full price I repurchased it at $299.99. Well worth the money even if the screen resolution is garbage. Perfect size, perfect aspect ratio (4:3 instead of the the long, slim 16:10 ratio of most android tablets... how many people use them extensively for viewing widescreen movies?), and can handle anything I throw at it. Would love a full size high-res tablet but with a 8 inch ipad meeting most of my needs, the price point has to be low.
Have to reiterate that I'm not an apple fanboy, love my Nexus 4 and never owned an iphone but the ipad mini at $299 knocks the socks of anything in the the 7-9 inch tablet group. To anyone who thinks "let him go pay $100 for a lesser device" if you take care of them and are clever with how you resell them, you can have an iPad for less than android tablets over the long term. You pay a higher up front cost for sure, but higher resale value makes the cost of buying, keeping for a year, and then selling, very very low. Android tablets just don't hold their value for resale.
That's pretty poor conjecture. First, just because ASUS increase the price point of the Nexus 7 doesn't mean they would the Nexus 10. They're at vastly different price points. The 7 is priced to be the least expensive tablet where any change in material costs can drastically alter the bottom line. At $400, the Nexus 10 is twice the price of the original 7 so there's a lot more room for changes in material costs.
Chances are good if ASUS is making the new Nexus 10, they'll use a Snapdragon 800, not a Snapdragon 600 (which is what the 7 uses). If Samsung ends up being the manufacturer, it's a toss up as to whether it'll end up with a Snapdragon 800 or an Exynos Octa.
In either case, the Nexus 10 is Google's platform to push the boundaries of technology while just about breaking even. I'm sure the next release will be very technically impressive.
Go look up conjecture because your post is a major FAIL.
My QUESTIONS (not an opinion or conclusion) were based on recent decisions taken by ASUS on recent products in the Nexus line. It's fair to consider those questions.
What isn't fair, and is actually very good evidence of POOR CONJECTURE is your ASSUMPTION ASUS will use a Snapdragon 800, when there is NO EVIDENCE and only one vague SOURCE to indicate this, @evleaks, and they were talking about a 2nd Gen Nexus 10 being built by Samsung, not ASUS. So let me help you - Conjecture - An opinion or conclusion formed on the basis of incomplete information.
Oh, and by the way, if you ever ATTEMPT to read something called THE INTERNET you will find that the Nexus 7 DOES NOT use a Snapdragon 600. It uses a modified Snapdragon S4 Pro.
