Nexus 10 vs iPad 4 vs Asus Transformer Pad Infinity specs comparison
Cue the drum roll for the new king in tablet display resolution – the Google Nexus 10. Manufactured by Samsung, the device packs a screen panel with a resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels, which is jaw-dropping no matter how you look at it. Upon putting those figures in a DPI calculator we get a pixel density of 300 ppi, and that's nothing short of impressive since it is a tablet we are dealing with here. That's just one of the many features that make the newly-announced Google Nexus 10 tablet so cool.

But how does it compare to other high-end tablets? Well, that isn't too difficult to answer, at least from a technical standpoint. And in order to do so, we've compared it side by side with a couple of heavyweights – the fourth generation Apple iPad, boasting a 9.7-inch Retina screen and an A6X processor, and the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T powered by a Tegra 3 processor and packing a 10.1-inch HD screen.

So here they are: three high-grade tablets with plenty to love about them. Which one is your favorite among the bunch? Tell us in the comments!
