More official Nexus leakage: this time the Samsung Nexus 10 manual

More official Nexus leakage: this time the Samsung Nexus 10 manualLaunch events? Who needs 'em? Apparently not Google – either that or it just felt like taking a wizz on Steve Ballmer's chips by stealing Microsoft's thunder on Windows 8 launch day.

First Carphone Warehouse decided to blow the lid off the already out-of-control Nexus 4 circus earlier today, and now a Korean site has got its hands on the official manual for the Samsung-made Nexus 10 tablet.

Both devices are due to be officially launched by the Big G on Monday – the same day as another Microsoft event, this one for Windows Phone 8.

Unlike CPW's big whoops earlier today, at least Korean site Seeko, which uploaded a page from the leaked manual, seems to be in control of its urges and is keeping the rest to itself for now. In other words, expect further info to drip-feed pretty much non-stop right up to launch day.

What we do get is a few annotated diagrams of the front, back and sides of the tablet, showing the location of the various ports, the speakers, front and back cameras and the charging port.

Given that they're not actual photos we can't be too sure, but from the diagrams it seems the notion that the Asus-made Nexus 7 design brief was being held up by Google as some kind of template seems to have been wide of the mark, as aside from also being a tablet, there's not much tying this to the Nexus 7 from a visual point of view.

So, that's the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 set to touch down on Monday, running either Android 4.1.2 or 4.2 (the CPW listing mentioned both) but either way it's just a Jelly Bean upgrade, not Key Lime Pie.

Is that all? Beats me – makes a fair bit of sense, but at this point that could be the reason why it's wrong more than anything else. Let's not forget rumours linking Sony (OK, faked), Motorola (just today) and even Asus (with a refreshed Nexus 7) to some of Google's limelight come Monday.

Should be quite an event.

Release this for a good price (preferably somehow under the iPad Mini and i'm probably most likely going to get one. :)
