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 agree otherwise, but, well, Google needs to work on how the added storage space is handled by Android. At the moment you kind of have to jump around various hoops to store files you download on the SD-card, often the files stored there don't show up properly in gallery, there's plenty of applications that cannot store their files at all on an SD-card and so on.

It would be nice if the user was presented with the option of keeping the SD-card like it works now for various reasons, like e.g. if the user knows he or she will have to remove it every now and then, or a choice where the system formats the card and uses it as a seamless addition to the internal storage.
