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.

The print industry has. This is what every electronic display seeks to emulate. As they should.


Actually, no. That's what e-Ink, Pixel-Qi and the likes seek to emulate. Everyone else has realized that it's pointless to try to emulate paper or other cellulose-based objects without a back-light on an electronic device with entirely different characteristics and strong back-lights, and therefore there are so many different products and guidelines for aiding people having to work with both kinds of output medias.
