With the joint project of Samsung and Google (again), they will be announcing a new 10-inch tablet codenamed “Manta” at its October 29th event. The Next Web claims that the new device will have a 10-inch 2560 x 1600 display with an iPad-beating pixel density of around 300ppi. If the new tablet is really true, then it would likely be the Nexus 10. It will be sold along with Asus Nexus 7 and new LG Nexus 4 as part of a multi-manufacturer Nexus program. For it to be successful with the tablet world (especially that there are a ton of good 10-inch tablet out there), it should be competitive enough with its processor and pricing.
On the same event, Google will also bring out new lines of the Nexus 7. HSPA+ 3G connectivity will now be accessible for those who longed wish for it as well as the now-confirmed internal storage bump.
The surprise here is that both the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 will launch with an updated OS, Android 4.2. It is not yet named but it is projected to have a new Play Store Widget, ”Tablet Sharing”, and horizontal and vertical panoramic photo capture as headline features for the new OS. It is still unsure whether Google will announce it under a new code name or it will still be under “JellyBean”.
