Google The Next Web: "Google has also been working with Samsung to launch a 10-inch tablet, confirming leaks which suggested Google had teamed up with the Korean manufacturer for another device. Our source tells us that internally the tablet goes under the name 'Codename Manta', runs Google's new Android 4.2 operating system (previously referred to as Key Lime Pie, but is set to retain the Jelly Bean branding), and will offer a 2560x1600 pixel (10:16) resolution, which we believe will offer around 300 pixels per inch compared to the new iPad's 264 PPI." Between the iPad and this supposed Android tablet... Poor Surface. Poor, poor Surface.

Why the focus on screen resolution?

Why do people and companies focus so hard on resolution? Everyone keeps masturbating to ever higher pixel counts while all the other features -- both in software and in hardware -- are ignored. IMHO Microsoft went the better direction with Surface's screen -- if what they claim about its better colour balance, gamut and brightness are true. I own an Acer Iconia Tab A500 which has 1280x800 pixels and I have no complaints whatsoever about the pixel count, but its colour representations leaves a lot to be desired.
