Google, in collaboration with Samsung, has unveiled the new Nexus 10 tablet that comes with an impressive LCD display. The display has a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels - or the equivalent of just over 4 million pixels. It does not utilize PenTile pixels as feared.

Google has taken the lead in the tablet pixel race. The new 10-inch Nexus 10 has an impressive LCD display with a pixel density of 300 ppi (pixels per inch). In comparison, Apple’s Retina 3 & 4 iPads offer a pixel density of 264 ppi.

When the rumor started swirling about the Nexus 10’s display with 2560x1600 pixel we feared that it used the critiziced PenTile pixel structure because Samsung had previously exhibited a PenTile-based LCD panel with the exact same resolution. PenTile reduces for example text sharpness. But Nexus 10 uses a true RGB based display produced by Samsung. The panel is called PLS which is a variant of IPS - the same as in the iPad.

In addition to the LCD display, Nexus 10 features the latest version of Android called 4.2. The big question is if Google can convince app developers to create Android tablet apps now? The 16 GB Nexus 10 will start at $399 and be available from November 13.
