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.

Please don't price it like an iPad...

As regards the Transformer, I don't know if the it saw 3 updated releases because it was sucessful, or because Asus thinks there is an untapped "hybrid Android tablet" market and so they persist with the Transformer despite the low sales...

How many of those Android tablets sold were above 7-8 inches anyway, and how many of them were "hybrids"?

PS: Anyone talking about Android lag in versions 4.1 and above falls in the "not sure if trolling or just stu.... errr ignorant" category.

Uh no, sorry. In real world use, Jelly Bean is still slow.

In real world use, I think the device I have in my hand would disagree.

You don't sound like someone who has a Jelly Bean device, how could you possibly know that?

In what manner?

I've got a Nexus 7 (which runs JB) and it's ridiculously fast, smooth and responsive. My only complaint about it is I wish it had an SD slot. Although that's more a device hardware complaint than an OS complaint.
