Google may announce a 10-inch tablet next week

Google's next tablet will feature a 10-inch screen and will be announced next week, according to a report.

The Next Web is saying the Mountainview, Calif., tech company plans to announce a tablet called the Nexus 10 at the Oct. 29 Android event for which Google sent invitations last week.

The tech site, which cites an unnamed source, says the Nexus 10 is being built by Samsung and will feature a 2,560 by 1,600 pixel resolution display with a 300 pixel per inch density (ppi).

On paper, that's better than the third generation iPad's Retina display, which has a 2,048 by 1,536 pixel resolution with 264 ppi.

There aren't many more details on the Nexus 10, but Google is also expected to announce other news regarding its Nexus line of mobile products.

The company is expected to announce the previously rumored Nexus 4 smartphone, which is believed to be built by LG, as well as a 32 GB version of the Nexus 7 7-inch screen tablet, which came out this summer.

The report also says Google will announce an updated version of its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
