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.

You can cram 20 000 x 20 000 pixels in the screen if you want but it won't be readable [...] why masturbate to high pixel count when concentrating on the other aspects is much more beneficial after a certain point?

Well, I'd very much like 20k x 20k on a small device ...and further. It would probably mean we're on a path towards proper holographic screens ( http://www.osnews.com/thread?492454 basically: the need the size of pixels comparable to the wavelength of light; oh, and also processing power and memory we're nowhere near yet - but once there, a display can feel kinda like a mirror or window)
