On Google’s Android Event, that takes place on October 29 in New York (same day as the Microsoft event), a 32GB version of the seven-inch Nexus 7 tablet will be announced and the long-expected cellular version of the device. But The Next Web reports that Google has also been working with Samsung to launch a 10-inch tablet. This 10-inch tablet “Codename Manta” runs Google’s new Android 4.2 and will offer a 2560×1600 pixel (16:10) resolution, which we believe will offer around 300 pixels per inch (PPI) compared to the new iPad’s 264 PPI. » October 29 Google Event: New 7-Inch Nexus and 10-Inch Nexus To Compete With The iPad

A Wall Street analyst told investors that suppliers are frustrated by Apple’s specifications for the 7.85-inch tablet. According to Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets, building the smaller iPad design to respond to rival 7-inch tablets powered by Google’s Android operating system is no walk in the park for suppliers. However, the new iPad will “blow away what competitors are offering in this smaller form-factor tablet market,” he writes. » iPad Mini Suppliers “Frustrated” By Apple’s Product Requirements
