The Google Nexus 7 has been a huge success and it comes as no surprise to 3G to hear that Google are working on a larger 10 inch tablet to rival the iPad.
New rumours, reported by CNET, suggest that Google are partnering with Samsung to produce a 10.1 inch tablet, codenamed the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 10.1. The Galaxy Nexus 10.1 will be aimed squarely at Apple's iPad and will therefore be a fully fledged premium tablet.
According to the rumours the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 10.1 will have a 10.1 inch touch-screen running at a resolution of 2,560x1,600 pixels. This gives it a ppi (pixels per inch) rating of almost 300 which is higher than the New iPad's 267ppi Retina display.
Sadly, that's all the information that was revealed in the leak but 3G is expecting the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 10.1 to have one of the highest specifications ever seen on a tablet. We presume it'll launch with a new version of Android Jelly Bean, although it's possible it'll come with Key Lime Pie.
With Google's backing and Samsung's hardware expertise the Google Nexus 10.1 could be the first true competitor to the iPad. However, while Google try to challenge the iPad , Apple are working on competing more directly with Google's Nexus 7 with the iPad Mini.
It'll be interesting to see how both new devices fair against their competitors more established devices. Whatever happens competition is great news for consumers who get better devices for their hard earned cash , so we say long may it continue !
