Featured: Nexus 10 About Screen Leaked, Confirms Multiple User Support in Android 4.2?

October 26, 2012 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Today we’ve seen our fair share of leaks and rumors. Plenty of Nexus 10 leaks today. It started with Vic Gundotra posting some pictures to his Google+ account this morning that, according to the EXIF data, was taken with a Nexus 10. And they looked gorgeous. Now, a commenter over Gizmodo posted a picture of the devices about screen. The commenter also said that he has held the device and it looks just like the pictures in the manual leaked yesterday. This is what he had to say:

I’ve held it. It’s a Samsung 10″ tablet that looks exactly like the user manual that leaked. All plastic, very thin, front firing stereo speakers. Running Jelly Bean, not Key Lime Pie. It’s designed to be held in landscape rather than portrait.

Very fast, but the About screen didn’t have any hardware details. Codename: Manta

So there’s that Manta tablet we’ve been seeing in so many server logs lately. And if you look at the left side, right about the “Personal” section, you’ll see “Users”. That’s new. Does that mean we’ll get Multiple-User Support in Android 4.2? When Android Police tore down the leaked Android 4.2 last week, they came across some code for Multiple-User support, but we weren’t to sure if that would be a 4.2 feature or just the groundwork with it coming in Android 5.0 (At Google I/O 2013?).

Now yes, About screens can be faked. And as many fakes and hoaxes as we’ve seen this Nexus season it could definitely be a fake. So take this with a grain of salt and wait until Monday morning. We’ll definitely learn more.
