Google Nexus 10 tablet

The Nexus 10 is a competitively priced Android tablet. If you're in the market for a 10in tablet for web browsing, watching films and various other tasks you could easily do worse. You could certainly spend a lot more on a tablet that isn't as good. But where is the best place to buy a Nexus 10? We take a look at your options.

Best place to buy Nexus 10: Google Play

Google's Nexus 10 is built by Samsung and available through the Google Play Store. Unlike the Nexus 7 which is available from a number of retailers, the Nexus 10, as it stands, is only on sale on the Play Store. At least things are nice and straight forward.

Group test: what's the best tablet PC?

Google will directly sell you a 16GB Wi-Fi only Nexus 10 for £319, a fair amount cheaper than the equivalent Apple iPad with Retina display, or the iPad 4. If you want some more storage, the 32GB Wi-Fi only Nexus 10 will set you back £389. There's no Wi-Fi and 3G model.

At the time of writing both models are 'shipping soon'. Delivery is estimated at 2-3 weeks. On top of the price of the tablet, Google charges £9.99 for postage. Once it ships it will take an estimated two days to arrive. See also: Google Nexus 10 price in UK and specs.

Google provides after sales support for returns and general technical advice, and says it will accept returns for up to 15 days. This is actually less than the statutory distance selling regulations. You get the standard Samsung manufacturer's warranty of 12 months, and will probably be better off going to the manufacturer for technical support.

•    Pros: It's your only option to get the Nexus 10. Buying though the Google Play Store is simple.
•    Cons: You'll have to wait a few weeks to get your Nexus 10, and we're not that impressed by the support options.
