After a sort of dry spell of Nexus 10 rumors and leaks, the rumored tablet now seems to be spending quite a bit of time in the spotlight. Just yesterday, we saw a “Quick Start” manual that was the closest thing to proof of the tablet’s existance yet, but today we get something even better. Thanks to BriefMobile, we now have actual images of the Samsung Nexus 10 tablet, as well as the Android 4.2 software powering it.

BriefMobile has quite a few pictures of the device on their site, but overall the tablet pictured is the same one that we saw in the leaked manual yesterday. The front speakers and rounded corners are present, as are the front camera and rear camera with flash. Disappointingly, the tablet doesn’t have a microSD slot, but it makes up for it with 16GB of internal storage, NFC, a dual-core Exynos 5250, 2GB of RAM, and most importantly, a 2560 x 1600 10-inch display, with an iPad beating pixel density of about 299 ppi.

The software tweaks noted were quite small, and in fact the codename of the OS remains “Jelly Bean,” despite the increased version number to Android 4.2. Most notably, some icons and interface elements have been changed, and the previously rumored quick settings area and multiple user accounts are now included.

You can see the rest of the images through the source link below, but for the most part they simply serve to confirm what we already expected. Now, it is clear that Google is planning to release a Nexus 10 tablet, the only question now is if it will come at the October 29 event.
