Samsung-made Nexus 10 is certainly a feast for the eyes, especially with that beautiful 2560x1600 display. There's just one problem: there aren't many Android developers who fine tune their apps for use on tablets. Instead of making a version of their app for Android tablets, a number of developers will just blow up their smartphone apps, which doesn't exactly make for the prettiest of experiences. Google is looking to change that, urging developers to focus on the tablet experience when it comes to their apps.

Android users have been frequenting the Google Play Store in a big way, with Google announcing that the store has hit 25 billion downloads. That may not seem like a big deal when you remember that the Apple Store hit 25 billion downloads earlier this year, but it's important to keep in mind that back in 2010, the Google Play Store was only at 1 billion downloads.
