A few days back, we heard a rumor that Samsung and Google were working together on a ten-inch Nexus tablet, and one that would have an impressively high 2560 x 1600 resolution, besting even the iPad 3. Obviously, that’s quite exciting news if true, and now the source behind it is back with some more detail, looking into just when the tablet might arrive.
CNET’s Bruce Crothers, who first wrote about the tablet on Monday, citing unnamed sources, is back with the claim that this Samsung/Google project is expected to arrive during the first half of 2013. Sure, that’s a pretty broad window, but at least it sets the stage for what we’re talking about here, that this isn’t some distant future collaboration being speculated upon, but something that sounds like it could be hitting the prototype and testing phase within the next couple months.
A ten-inch tablet (technically 10.1-inch) with the kind of resolution being discussed here will have a pixel density that’s just about 300ppi. That’s far from the the highest we’ve seen, but considering the size of the screen we’re talking about, is nonetheless impressive.
