A rumor about the next Nexus 10 tablet has been confirmed by a retail leak.

Rumors first began to circulate yesterday that Asus -- not Samsung -- may be in line to manufacture the next iteration of the Nexus 10.
Asus was already tapped by Google to build the new Nexus 7 device, launched late last month.
Last year Google added two new types of Nexus devices to its flagship lineup: 7- and 10-inch tablets.
Consumers weren't as keen for the 10-inch Nexus as they were for the Nexus 7, but Geek.com reports the Nexus 10's fortunes could turn as the Android operating system and apps are continually being fine-tuned for larger screens and higher resolutions.
Rumor has it that the new Nexus 10 could be available online via the Google Play store and on retail shelves at Best Buy stores by the holiday season.
Details about coming hardware improvements are scarce, but rumors suggest the Nexus 10 could boast a Snapdragon chipset and a 2560x1600 pixel display.
The new rumors come hot on the heels of another report Friday that Motorola might manufacture the next Nexus 5 smartphone for a late 2013 release.
