Google Inc. has announced a larger version of its Nexus tablet computer, one that comes closer to competing with Apple's full-sized iPad and other tablets. Here's a look at how the Nexus 10 compares with other tablets with comparable screens.
Google Inc.'s Nexus 10 (available Nov. 13):
— Price: $399 for 16 gigabytes of storage, $499 for 32 GB

— Cameras: 5-megapixel camera on back and a low-resolution camera on front, for videoconferencing
— Battery life: 9 hours for video playback, 7 hours for Web browsing.

Pros: Access to a variety of games, utilities and other software for Android devices, though not as extensive as apps available for iPad. Cheaper than newest full-sized iPad.
