Completing a trio of new Nexus announcements, Google revealed today it will soon sell a new Nexus 10 Android tablet running the latest Android 4.2 software and sporting a high-class display. The new Nexus 10, designed in partnership with Samsung, has a 10-inch screen with "the highest resolution tablet on the planet." The tablet has a 2560 x 1600 resolution, which translates to a 300 pixel per inch display.

The Nexus 10 also has a stereo speakers in the front of the devices, a battery that promises more than 9 hours of video playback and 500 hours of standby time, and the latest version of Android 4.2.
