Google and Samsung are partnering to produce a 10.1-inch tablet that will rival the iPad, reports CNET.

The tablet will have a display resolution of 2,560x1,600 and 299 PPI (pixels per inch). That's more pixels per inch than the iPad which has a 2,048x1536, 9.7-inch, 264 PPI display.

"It's going to be a high-end device," said Richard Shim, an analyst at NPD DisplaySearch -- in contrast with Google's $199 Nexus 7 and upcoming $99 tablet.

"They'll partner with Samsung and cobrand it with Samsung," Shim said.

Google partnered with Asus on the Nexus 7 tablet. No word on when this device might be available.

Seeing is believing but hopefully some good competition.

I have a problem believing this article since it mentions a $99 device. Hasn't that rumour already been shot down?

i have been using iPhone and android.. and now back to iPhone.. iPhone is dinefetily better i say as much as android can do all that i'm saying do we really need all that? those are just crap apps.. and why trouble your hands with a stylus? and as for flash websites they don't really load as well as a computer cause in the end i still prefer to use my computer to access them and how many flash websites are you accessing everyday? plus more websites are iPhone friendly and a big phone in your pocket/hand.. tiring.. embarassing to hold a huge phone.. and that is just a few things android can do but not necessary iPhone have apps that can do what samsung can only a true iPhone users know that so stop trying to bring iPhone down.. everyone who thinks android is a better phone is in denial i must say plus battery on an android is 10x worst than iPhone i couldn't even last half a day with an android.. and they take too long to update a firmware that needs to be updated by the time a new firmware is released they come out with a new phone for it they really know how to suck your pockets dry just saying.. have a great day.. whatever phone you choose to use is really up to you as long you're happy cause i am certainly happy with an iPhone.. i can do so much with an iPhone than an android peace out..

It could have 600ppi density and I still won't buy it. If is made by Samsung, it will lack real quality, and if it's running android os it will freeze, crash and reboot constantly. They are going to need more than a better screen to rival apple.

Try using Jelly Bean, it's pretty amazing. Android has finally reached iOS levels of smoothness. It's really snappy. :) I was using the iPhone since 2007 (I've had them all, from iPhone -> iPhone 4S) all the way till March of this year when I picked up a Galaxy S II, then in July, I grabbed a Galaxy S III and it's pretty damn good. (Yes, I know they come with ICS, but obviously I've hacked them and put Jelly Bean on them). But I'm currently running stock and it's pretty amazing. :)
