Now that amoled displays are getting higher resolutions, I don't feel attracted to LCD panels anymore.

AMOLED is good, but not as good as an IPS display. duh. I think Samsung are taking advantage of AMOLED as a "brand" name and using that to market their products successfully. Because Samsung could easily make a product with an IPS display anyday.

I will tell you the main reason amoled is considered better
IPS is realistic (plain colors) looking while amoled Looks (Brighter colors) DYNAMIC

Black is black on Amoled screens, not very dark gray like IPS
Images appear to float, with no way of telling where the screen ends in a dark room

10in tablet will be Awesome

True, not to be all "NOKIA RULEZ", but with Nokia's Clearblack Technology those "blacker blacks" can be achieved on their Lumia 920 IPS display. AMOLED can look saturated, but looks great for a lower pixel amount/density. If you have a real high pixel amount/density on an IPS display it will look far better, especially with Nokia's Clearblack Display ;D

Now you are talking like a true Nokia fanboy.

Amoled's are good for better blacks, better color saturation(Whcih can be tuned according to preference), better contrast and lesser reflectivity.

IPS lcd has the upper hand in whites. And Nokia clearblack lcd on Lumia 920 although good but Htc one x's display is way better with better blacks than clear black lcd from Nokia.
For nokia blacks at full brightness is .48 and for one x its .39. Amoled's have 0. The lesser the better.
All info is taken from Lumia 920 review from Gsmarena.

Just because I support Nokia doesn't mean im "fanboy" I can like tech that ISN'T nokia, right? I was just stating an opinion, and yes I agree. Nokia's clearblack technology also battles glare.

Dude, Timmehor likes Nokia doesn't mean he is a Nokia fanboy. I like Sony, but that doesn't mean I'm not a Sony fanboy. This is PhoneArena, we are talking about fair and square, not fanboys.

A galaxy tab with an amoled display would be great. I would definitely sell my nexus 10 for it. I really hope this is true.

Samsung showed off a 11.6 and 10.1 AMOLED display and the 10.1 IPS display at one of the shows. Google chose the IPS display for the Nexus 10 though. Either way, Samsung will make the right choice based on market research and listening to the customers.

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-demos-two-2560x1600-pixels-10-displays-production-of-one-to-start-next-year_id23296

They showed the 11.6 way back in the iPad 3 days 3 or 4 CES shows ago but I couldn't find the link.

And if they do not use aluminum like they did for the 7.7, it will be the right choice. Asian markets were complaining that the LG Optimus G didn't have a removable battery so they added it back for LG Optimus G pro. So it looks like only the phonearena/HTC/Sony market cares about glass or aluminum and that market is pretty small and might be extinct soon for their lack if intelligence.
