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.

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.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
