If information circulating the Internet is to be believed, then Samsung will make the next generation Nexus 10 tablet and the device will launch in October 2013. In the past, every time Google has shown off a new Nexus device, the device runs on a new version of the Android OS. It seems like the new Nexus 10 will run on the much-anticipated Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
