Google (GOOG) is set to announce a variety of Android goodies at its press event on October 29th in New York City.

We first heard that Google (GOOG) was working on a tablet called the Nexus 10 this past summer and now it looks like it’s close to becoming a reality. The Italian Android HD Blog found a picture on Picasa that purportedly provides more details on the device and shows that it will have a 10-inch display with a resolution of 2560 × 1920 pixels, or around 299 pixels-per-inch. No word yet on who’s manufacturing this new Nexus tablet, but previous rumors suggest that it will be Samsung (005930).
Google is reportedly planning a 10-inch version of its Nexus 7 tablet, according to a report from Digitimes. The tablet’s display panels will be supplied by Wintek and AU Optronics; Google previously ordered 500,000 touch panels from Wintek for its Nexus 7 tablet in June, the report claims. Google’s Andy Rubin revealed earlier this year that the Mountain View-based company was doubling down on the tablet market in 2012. Google is betting big on its 7-inch slate and based on its performance, could quite possibly release a larger model to compete with Apple’s iPad. The Nexus 7 will be available in mid-July for $199.
