The Google Nexus 10 is arguably the first Android tablet that can compete with the third and fourth-generation Apple iPad and its Retina display; with a mouth watering 2560 x 1600 resolution and a 300ppi pixel density, let's see what the tablet looks like when it is broken down...

It's NOT 1080p
1080P = 1920 x 1080 this is way more than that .
I think I can call this retina display because 300ppi

I think Apple's definition of Retina is a pixel density so high that the human eye can't detect individual pixels, and that was achieved with the iPad 3.

Yes, the initial thought of that was 300+ ppi, but that was only for smartphones. With tablets, that standard for Retina is lowered because as you look at a display, the further you get from it, it looks sharper than it actually is number-wise; and of course, you don't hold a tablet as close to your face as you do your phone.

So, even though the iPad 3 was technically below that preconceived standard, because of the further viewing distance it actually was Retina quality.

The Nexus 10 has already been proven to use RGB, so no worries there.

Is the use of "Outrageous" word correct in the title of this article?

Would same word have been used if it was Apple product? In general outrageous word is used in negative sense.
