Top 10 V3 articles: Google Nexus 10 review, $899 for Microsoft Surface and Nasa turns to the cloud

03 Dec 2012

Tablets are likely to be at the top of many people’s Christmas wish lists this year, and have taken both the consumer and corporate world by storm as a cheap and light replacement to the laptop. So it’s little surprise that our Google Nexus 10 review was most popular with readers last week, no doubt keen to find out how good the iPad rival really is.

For those of you still making up your minds about which tablet to buy, make sure to check back on V3 later this week, as we’ll be posting our full 10in tablets head to head review, to help you decide between the Nexus 10, new iPad and the Microsoft Surface.

For those interested in the Microsoft tablet, the firm has recently confirmed the Surface Pro will set you back a hefty $899 in the US – UK pricing has yet to be disclosed. The $899 price tag will get you a generous 64GB of storage, but you’ll need to shell out separately for the Surface's keyboard.

Also popular with readers last week was the revelation that Cambridge University is to study the threat to humanity from technology advances, to ensure the world isn’t really taken over by hordes of iRobots, along with a big boost for cloud computing as Nasa revealed the organisation has turned to the cloud for projects such as the Mars Curiosity rover mission.
