If you missed your chance to grab a Nexus 10 tablet from the Google Play store, there is now another option to consider, Staples. The retailer has begun accepting pre-orders for the tablet, however there seems to be a slight catch. Well, maybe not so much a catch, but a long lead time before the tablet will actually ship. More on that in a moment though. Staples has the Nexus 10 tablet listed, they have the 32GB model and are selling it at $499. Nothing surprising here.
But back to that other part, the Staples listing is a pre-order and according to the listing, the tablets are not expected to ship for 17-24 business days. Simply put, you are looking at a shipping date in late-December. On the positive side though, you will get free shipping and assuming there are no further delays, this could be enough time for a Christmas delivery.
