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.

Why complain about the PPI-war??

I seriously don't get it...? As far as i'm concerned this PPI-war is an exciting development that will also boost motivation on other parts of the computer industry. Many of you are complaining that you don't notice the difference anyways and that these new screens are very demanding on graphics processing power. I don't know if you realize this, but you do retain the option of running at lower non-native resolutions... Anyways the way i see it the PPI-war is a good thing since it creates a great demand for powerful gpu's, thus lowering the costs of such gpu's and compelling developers to develop ever more powerful chips at reasonable prices. I just don't get the reason for complaining about it? It's as if some people just have the need to have something to bitch about...

Agreed. Putting WQXGA on a 10" screen only proves my point that it should already be offered on 15" and especially 17" laptops. I am going to falcon punch my old high-powered laptop with a sh***y 1080p screen to the curb as soon as I can upgrade.

I am so sick of being stuck with resolutions lower than what was the standard 5-6 years ago. Hulk Smash!
