I guess I'll have one of those 8.9" Kindles now, tired of waiting for the new Nexus 7. Hopefully they can be rooted without too much fuss. Or maybe I'll grow up and start liking Amazons UX?

Any of you guys out there tried it yet? Maybe even compared it to Nexus tablets? Let me hear you, don't be shy. I want to buy one today…

Note to myself… Finally there is a viable reason to get another Nexus.

+Android Developers! If you want to test your UI in pretty much all environments, a Nexus 10 is all you need.

There are two really useful commands you should know: "adb shell am display-size" and "adb shell am display-density".

These two commands will tell an attached device to emulate a display resolution or density other than the native display properties of the device. You can tell either property to reset by telling it "reset" as the resolution or density argument.

What this means is that with one high resolution, high density device like the Nexus 10, you can simulate the environment of just about any other Android device you'll care about for basic UI testing. The resource system will give you the appropriate resources for the adjusted Configuration and you can check each different device class you want to support in minutes.
