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.


Everyone else has realized that it's pointless to try to emulate paper
"

Everyone else apparently doesn't include Google, Samsung, Acer and several other android oems.

Cellulose is only part of the equation and obviously not what I'm talking about, whereas being able to draw a straight line is valuable in design of any type. I'm not sure why people see visible pixels as something that never needs to change. The tech is ready, we can easily move beyond it (especially on desktops) and don't have to move even one bit farther, but suddenly it's a race because someone took a step forward.
