Nexus 10 released in India
Anyone notice what "new" tablet was released in India?
The "existing" Samsung Google Nexus 10.
Another indication that a newer model is not necessarily ready for immediate release. Again, I believe that the pricing will drop to "official" low pricing for the 16 and 32GB models and new 64GB and 64MB with LTE wireless models will be released for the high end.
Seems like it's too much of a slap in the face to release the existing model in new countries at a higher price to then whip out a new model and yell "psych!" to the world. Releasing the existing model in new countries for sale also indicates that Google believes there is still sufficient life in the existing N10 product and compelling for purchase by new customers.
Need a new processor? Looks like the alternative is another Samsung, the Note 10.1 2014 edition or to purchase the new ASUS transformer.

I believe it's media hype that brought us to this point. Google has a problem in that if they answer the hype that there isn't a new model, it'll drag down opinion on the platform. If they do confirm a new model, but it's out several months, then sales of existing hardware completely stagnate while everyone waits for the new model instead.
Here's what I find interesting...
New sales from Google Play devices in new countries are for existing hardware. Seems odd to sell older product on product launch in a new market instead of timing the new market for the new model.
This indicates to me, there's no new hardware for another 6 months.
Nexus 5 was the new release. If you wanted a Nexus tablet, either get the Nexus 7 2013 edition or the current Nexus 10 which is still a great product.
Nexus 10 2014 edition? Will be in the calendar year 2014 if there is one. 10" sales were lower for Google, sticking to 7" and Phones might be the best market sectors for Google anyway. Doesn't require that developers do a decent job of porting their applications to tablet format as the 7" tab can still do portrait apps decently in comparison to a phone.
