Google to snub Samsung, hand Nexus 10 to Asus – report

And next Galaxy Nexus mobe could come from ... Motorola

Google has dumped Samsung as the maker of its Nexus 10 fondleslabs and switched to Taiwanese manufacturer Asus, reports Geek.com.

The report cited "multiple sources" as claiming the Nexus 10 refresh would be available on the Google Play Store in time for the holiday season. A screen capture of a retailer's leaked stock lookup showed an entry for a Google Nexus 10 16GB Wi-Fi manufactured by Asus.

Unfortunately, the screen grab had placeholder info in the slots that should have given dimensions and stock dates for the new tablet.

Nexus devices are Google's own Android machines, but are still made by one of its manufacturing partners. The first Nexus 10 was made by Samsung, while the initial Nexus 7 was made by Asus. The Taiwanese hardware-maker is also responsible for the next iteration of the 7-inch slab and now looks like the maker of choice for the 10-inch too.

At the same time, the rumour mill is suggesting that Google's next Nexus phone will come from its newly bought phone-maker Motorola. Google bought the company last year for $12.5bn, but the first phone on its slate turned out to be the Moto X.

Some bloggers have suggested that Motorola will make the next Nexus as well, also in time for a Christmas release. But others have questioned whether the Chocolate Factory would set Moto to work on a Nexus handset so soon after the release of its own flagship mobe. ®
