Asus, not Samsung, lined up to produce the next Nexus 10

ASUS logoNot long after the unveiling of its new Nexus 7 tablet, Android boss Sundar Pichai told a reporter for the Wall Street Journal that the company was also working on a follow-up to the larger Nexus 10 tablet. The reporter's Tweet on the subject implicated Samsung as Google's partner for the new tablet, but a new report today indicates that this may not be the case.

Asus, not Samsung, lined up to produce the next Nexus 10

Geek.com's Russell Holly reports that Asus, the company responsible for both versions of the Nexus 7, will be handling the ten-inch tablet this time around. "Multiple sources" indicate that this new tablet will be sold both in the Google Play store and in Best Buy (no surprises there), and a leaked Best Buy listing for the new tablet (shown above) lists Asus as the manufacturer.

When asked about this new report earlier today, the WSJ reporter said that his original Tweet had been meant to convey that the current Nexus 10 was the one made by Samsung, and that Pichai hadn't said anything one way or the other about the new version's manufacturer.

As with any rumor, take this one with a grain of salt—that Best Buy listing is mostly populated with obviously incorrect filler information (including a launch date of January 1, 2013), and the manufacturer listing isn't guaranteed to be correct. Regardless of who makes it, the new Nexus 10 is due before the end of the year, and as its release date draws nearer, we're sure that more concrete information will be easier to come by.
