Well, well, well, this is somewhat of a surprise but it looks like Google and Samsung are working together on yet another Nexus-branded smart device, this time a 10-inch tablet.

This is what the rumor mill is spinning at the moment according to information provided to CNET by industry analyst Richard Shim. Shim has learnt that Google are working on a 10-inch Nexus-branded tablet that would be developed and "co-branded" with Samsung. It won't be a slouch, either, where it's rumored to be a high-end device featuring a 2560x1600 panel.

 

This panel would beat the third-gen iPad's specs with a pixel density of 299ppi versus the 264ppi found on the iPad. Shim was also nice enough to confirm the existence of the rumored $99 Nexus tablet and that production will start in December.

 

Shim has stated that his source on this nugget of info are from "supply chain indications". Android is really ramping up this year, isn't it?
