Samsung Nexus tablet slated for introduction on October 29th along with other surprises
It looks like Google has another product announcement that it will make at its October 29th media event. Besides the LG Nexus 4 smartphone, there is now speculation that the rumored 10 inch Samsung Nexus tablet will also be announced during the event. Earlier this month, it appeared as though we wouldn't be seeing this device until the first half of 2013, but that now seems like misinformation designed to throw us off the trail.

The Samsung Nexus tablet is expected to have a 10 inch screen with resolution of 2560 x 1600 which leaves it with a higher 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.

The source also has the final specs for the LG Nexus 4, which includes the 4.7 inch 768 x 1280 display, the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 8MP rear facing camera and a 1.3MP front facing camera. A 2100mAh battery is keeping the lights on and Android 4.2 will be installed.

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.
