Nowadays, users are more likely to get their hands on high-resolution display screens and that’s why, a considerable number of vendors are concentrating to manufacture devices of higher pixels density and screen resolutions. At present, numbers of Tablet devices including Amazon’s 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD, Barnes & Noble’s Nook HD+, Google’s 3G- enabled Nexus 7, iPad Mini and more are in the queue to be launched in this fall.

NPD DisplaySearch Analyst–Richard Shim–told CNET that Google and Samsung (together) are working on 2,560 x 1600-pixel display Tablet, which features a pixel density of about 299 pixels per inch. In comparison, Apple’s third generation 9.7-inch iPad has 2,048 x 1536 pixels retina display screen that comprises 264 PPI. Here, anyone can easily say that what’s the intention of Google and Samsung to manufacture a Tablet that will have greater screen resolution compare to Apple’s new iPad.

In addition to this, Google is also planning to start production of $99 Tablet in December of this year. However, there’s no any evidences related to screen size or manufacture of the device. On the other hand, Apple’s Asian contract manufacturers have got an order for over 10 million iPad Mini in Q4 2012 and it’s also expected that iPad could touch the shipments of 30 million units figure in this holiday shopping season.

Google already partnered with Taiwan-based Asus for the production of 7-inch Nexus Tablet and this time, it has chosen Samsung for larger device. After a success of 7-inch Tablet, Google is now trying to bet on 10-inch Tablet market, which is currently dominated by Apple’s iPad.

Ironically, Android has yet to prove itself in the Tablet segment especially in 10-inch category. However, the OS has proven itself in 7-inch segment with Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google Nexus 7 tablet. Moreover, the price is also one of the determining factors for the breakthrough of any device, but pricing of Google-Samsung high-resolution Tablet hasn’t been leaked yet by any sources.

In recent months, Google has become more Tablet-centric; In addition to the launch of Nexus 7, Google has also doubled its effort in developers outreach in order to courage them to build more Android apps for Tablet.

Just a month before, Google announced to launch 3G-enabled Nexus 7 Tablet, which is expected to be more improvised compare to the original one. The intention of Google is quite clear; It wants to debilitate the dominance of Apple’s iPad in Tablet segment by hook and crook.

The main center of attraction of Apple’s third generation iPad is its retina display screen–3 million units of new iPad were shipped within three days of its launch. Definitely, high-resolution screen has become one of the pre-requisite for Tablet devices. A significant number of users especially e-readers across the world are still more likely to own 10-inch screen.

However, Samsung was ranked second in Tablet shipments in Q2 of this year and also, it has long experiences to build high screen devices. That’s why; Google has decided to go with the South Korean electronic giant to manufacture 11.8-inch Tablet. This time, Google does not want to leave any room for Apple in any screen-size Tablet space.
