With WWDC 2014 just hours away, consumers are braced for potential hardware announcements. Typically, Apple’s annual event is used to introduce new software for iOS and Mac OS X but consumers are still holding on to the hope that Apple may spring a surprise by confirming that the iPad Air 2 is coming.
Before the new iPad Air arrives though, consumers are still very much in love with the current model and those who are waiting for new Android tablets from Google may be left waiting until further on in the year.
One tablet that many consumers have been waiting to see for months is the Nexus 10 2 model. The wait has gone on for so long that some consumers have been forced to admit that they will carry on using the iPad Air solely due to Google’s lack of silence on new Nexus tablets.
Fortunately, Google I/O is just around the corner and it could be the event in which Google finally breaks their silence. We have personally seen the new Nexus 10 tablet in the flesh with private images so we know it’s coming – it’s just a matter of when.
I/O really needs to hurry up. I need a new tablet and I want to give the mystical new Nexus 10 a chance to show itself. #techunicorn

The longer Google keeps consumers waiting for the new Nexus 10 2014 model, the longer consumers will be tempted to stay on iOS with the iPad Air and possibly even contemplate a upgrade to the iPad Air 2 or iPad Pro once it is released.
Google obviously has the Nexus 7 2014 to give consumers their 7-inch desire, but ask many Nexus fans what they really want to see from Google and most will say that the Nexus 10 is the grand prize.
How long are you willing to wait for Google? Will you wait as long as it takes as long as it does come out eventually, or are you already planning to stay with iOS and the iPad Air range?
