Samsung Nexus 10 Stories July 29, 2013

Two new high-res, 2560×1600 pixel Samsung tablets on the way, 10- and 12.2-inch

The generally reliable @evleaks is reporting that Samsung is working on 10-inch and 12.2-inch tablets, each with a resolution of 2560×1600.

The claim appears to be confirmed by SM-P900 and SM-P600 user-agent profiles on the  Samsung site which match the resolution. GSMarena also pointed us to an Indian shipping website which appears to show prototypes of two versions of the 12.2-inch tablet entering the country.

Given the screen size and resolution, it seems more than possible that the 10-inch tablet is the new Samsung-made Nexus 10, while the 12.2-inch monster may be a new Galaxy Tab or (gack) a Windows Tablet. If so, the smart money is on the latter being released at the IFA in September.

Apple, FWIW, is working on a 13-inch tablet, or so the rumor goes.

Microsoft Surface outselling Nexus 10, claims strategy analyst

Strategy analyst Benedict Evans (via Daring Fireball) has done some admittedly rough-and-ready number-crunching on Nexus sales based on Google development data to come up with a figure of just 680,000 Nexus 10 tablets in use – compared to 1.5m rumored Microsoft Surface sales.

If true, that’s rather painful for Samsung, especially when both figures are compared with the 36.9m iPads sold in the second half of 2012 alone.
