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.

...but it would be nice to see an SD card on a Nexus tablet for a change. That way, they can just sell it with one SKU - say 32GB built-in with up to 64GB SDXC to add later if you want. I also hope they up the CPU and GPU from the one in the Nexus 7 because the higher res will probably need a speed bump overall.

I could see a Nexus 10 - if it is actually going to turn up - selling well if it offers a vanilla Android 4.2 experience, isn't too thick or heavy, is rootable/ROMable (OK, that's for me :-) ), performs at least as well as the Nexus 7 does and comes in at price a decent amount below the iPad 3 (it might be able to equal or best the iPad 3 in most aspects, but if the price is close or the same, people will still go for the iPad 3 because it's shiny).
