The folks of Android Authority have a very nice and real piece about Samsung’s tablets, that for some reason have failed to incorporate high resolution displays this year. It was back in March 2012 that the iPad 3 Retina Display set the bar high for all models to come.

It was set at 264 PPI and beaten by the Nexus 10 with its 300 PPI display. Then came the Nexus 7 II this week with 323 PPI on a 7 inch screen, but still, where are Samsung’s high res slates? Of course, we’ve got the Ativ Q and its stunning 3200 x 1800 pixel res, but that one is a Windows model, so it’s Android that’s at a loss here.

There are two possibilities here: either Samsung believes that HD or Full HD is enough for the average user, of they’re preparing for 4K slates. Samsung is rumored to be working on a 12 inch 2560 x 1600 pixel slate, but even that is no longer impressive. Even ASUS has such as slate in its portofolio the 10 inch Transformer Pad Infinity. So, what’s the next move that Samsung will make?

    It’s because Windows and Nexus. Samsung is doing fine on Windows territory and they are manufacturing the Nexus 10 slate. Now they are doing the next-gen Nexus 10 for Google.
    Big Android tablets don’t sell very well (except Nexus), they are overtaken by smaller ones.
