Google And Samsung Expected To Develop A 10-Inch Nexus Tablet


While the Nexus 7 is a resounding success, speculation has surfaced that Google is currently partnering with Samsung for yet another Nexus device— this time a 10-inch tablet. According to NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim, this new Nexus tablet will measure in at exactly 10.1 inches and feature a display of 2,560×1,600 display with a PPI (pixels per inch) of about 299– which would trump even the Retina Display found on the iPad. Oh and unlike the the existing Nexus 7, this new 10.1-inch tablet will be positioned as a high-end tablet featuring all the bells and whistles poised to take a major bite out of the iPad’s market share.

Considering Samsung has an excellent track record with the development of past Nexus devices (see Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus smartphones), we can expect a solid offering from this collaboration with Google. Unfortunately, there are no additional details for now, but as soon as we dig up any additional info, we’ll be sure to let you know.
