Google is looking to one-up that iPad's Retina display

Apple may be looking to crush the competition's hopes of taking over the 7" tablet market with its upcoming iPad Mini, but Google is looking to grab a few headlines of its own on Monday, October 29.
 
According to The Next Web, Google will officially unveil a 32GB version of its popular Nexus 7 tablet. The device has already turned up in stores across the U.S. and some lucky people have even been able to purchase the device, which is priced at $249 (the same price as the previous 16GB model). In addition, there will also be another 32GB Nexus 7 that will feature 3G connectivity. This device will most likely be aimed right at Amazon's 8.9" Kindle Fire HD LTE 4G (say that three times fast).

 
The star of the show, however, will be Google's new 10" tablet that was developed in conjunction with Samsung. This tablet will come bearing Android 4.2 (still operating under the Jelly Bean codename) and a Retina-surpassing resolution of 2560x1600 (300 ppi). Apple's "New iPad" features a screen resolution of 2048x1536 (264 ppi).
 
The device will likely be called the Nexus 10. We don't have any specs to report on at this time other than the screen, but we can only assume that it'll be packing a quad-core processor and at least 64GB of storage space at the high-end.

All I want a tablet for...

Literally all I want is an ~9inch tablet that can play back my anime files with advanced subtitle rendering. I commute alot on the bus and need something to do. The galaxy tab 8.9 was the perfect size, but tegra 2 failed at video playback for my needs. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9" looks again to be the perfect size, and the omap 4470 can play my files, but watching custom videos on the kindle is a PITA especially since I can't root it and just put cyanogen on it. Hopefully the cm team finds away around amazons limitations once that device launches. Would just get the tf300 from asus, but its a little big for my tastes, and the nexus 7 just doesnt have the storage capacity i'd like because of the lacking microsd slot

If you're really chomping at the bit and want to get one asap, and the Nexus 7 fills all your needs except storage, you could always use it with USB OTG to expand the storage.

I'd say go Note 10.1 with its 64GB microSD card support it's pretty damn nice. Only drawback is there isn't a good player for the DTS codec.
