Samsung Nexus tablet slated for introduction on October 29th along with other surprises

pixel density at 300ppi than the 264ppi belonging to the third-generation iPad. It will be powered by the Android 4.2 OS that is also expected to be part of the event. As far as a name is concerned, the source for The Next Web could not confirm if the tablet will be called the Nexus 10. Inside the Korean manufacturer, the tablet is known as "Manta".
What other surprises does Google have for us on October 29th? We do expect to see the 32GB Google Nexus 7 tablet that already has been sold at one Staples store, although there is talk that a version of the 32GB model will be made available with HSPA+ connectivity, which is something that fans of the tablet have wanted to see. After all, you can't rely on Wi-Fi everywhere you go.
Android 4.2 will introduce ‘Content in the center,’ which is a way for users to access Google Play Store via a widget. Tablet Sharing’ will let multiple users access a tablet each with their own email and app settings. Competing with iOS 6, the new OS build will include an update to the panoramic camera settings which will now support both horizontal and vertical movement as the default setting.

Suddenly, pixel density won't matter.

Nice, looking forward to see how the Nexus 10 turns out. Regarding the horizontal and vertical movement for panoramic photos, my S III has that already as default when switching to panoramic mode. Still excited to see what 4.2 brings.

I really hope that storage thing isn't true, I love the phone but only 16 GB of storage is a deal breaker for me I'm already using 20 GB of storage and thats not including my music. Personally I need more storage.

if storage is so important to you then get a phone with microSD slot, like Samsung Galaxy S3

also if you think about subjetively theree seems to be a Nexus Mesage on that invitation, "the playgrouf is oppen" could mean a overhauled nexus program and more than One Nexus Device. But hey look at this -LG Nexus 4 -Asus Nexus 7 -Samsing Nexus 10 -Motorola -HTC only two big guys are missing so far to there to be 5 Nexus

You could also look into the four towers that are on the invite representing 4 Nexus devices too.

"The playground is open" Was already used in advertisements of the Nexus 7 (At least 2). Nothing new on that... I hope that Google really change the Nexus program and make it more open, with more than one device launched per year. But I think that it's not so easy... They will have to manage an increasing number of devices that should be updated with each new version of Android. For each new Nexus, they will have to allocate resources. And, technically, they will take a responsability that shouldn't be theirs (After all, it is someone else's hardware!). Maybe, if the manufacturers really get in this Nexus fever, they can make one agreement, and pay for the google's software maintenance (Since they will have zero concerns and costs, in the software development).

100GB free from Google, thats y the new nexus doesn't have that much memory. 8-16 is not for a game players like me. just one game from EA takes like 1.3GB .

What good does 100gb in the cloud do when the carriers are limiting our data? You can't stream with the new tiered our shared plans, unless you want to pay double or more.
