Google, in cahoots with Samsung, might be about to reveal a 10” Google Nexus tablet, according to CNET. This device will be 10.1” and may have a higher ppi than the third-gen iPad.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2 tablet rumored
The tablet’s screen will have a 1,560×1,600 resolution and a 299 ppi, beating the 246ppi of the Retina display iPad, which has a 2,048×1,536 resolution. NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim thinks that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus tablet will be a high end gadget allied to the $199 Nexus 7.
This co-branding with Samsung will show a deepening relationship for the two companies, who are already co-branding the Galaxy Nexus Samsung phone. Shim also said that the info on this 10.1” tablet came from supply chain notices, which is always a reliable sign. Google has begun production of a $99 tablet that’ll come out in December, but it hasn’t said anything about a new Nexus tablet.
There are also reports of a Nexus phablet that’ll compete with gadgets like the Samsung Note 2. Designed by HTC, it’ll have a 5” 1,080p display. While that phablet is smaller than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and its 5.5-inch display, the 10.1-inch Nexus tablet might be just what Nexus fans after a big screen device have been waiting for.
