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.

I have a silly question

Operating systems have been around for a very long time now. Will we ever get to the point where they no longer need to be updated? I'm not talking about "security updates". I'm talking about the functionality of the OS. I can understand companies rolling out updates in increments to maximize profits. But, can't there end up being the "perfect" OS one day? When that happens, then what?

Current changes in operating systems are driven by computers being more mobile. Laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc. High speed computing isn't tethered to a desk anymore, just as they weren't limited to mainframes or clusters before.

Operating systems and applications will adapt based on the different usage cases when you make what was once massive and cooled by freon into something cooled by plain old air that fits in your pocket. This is why you are hearing so much buzz about wearable computing, it is a logical next step given the projected advances in performance and efficiency.

Physical form is a major factor that drives an operating system. They will cease to change when their physical forms stop changing, which is probably never.
