The new iPad features 264 PPI on the 9.7-inch 2,048x1,536p retina display and Google's upcoming tablet will top it with a 2,560x1,600p display with 299 PPI.

The analyst states that this is going to be a high-end device unlike Nexus 7, which was priced starting $199, which means Nexus 10 will directly compete with Apple iPad. Interestingly, this reports comes at a time when the Cupertino based iPad maker is planning to take on Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire at the cheaper end of the market with its own 7.85-inch mini iPad.

Samsung, which is going to build this tablet, has already worked with Google on two Nexus smartphones - Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S.
