However, as one rumor disappears, another one surfaces. Bright Side of News claims that Google will make an appearance at the MWC with a second-generation 10-inch Nexus-10 tablet which Samsung is building. It promises the highest resolution of any 10-inch display tablet (2560x1600p) and is expected to have a much more powerful processor. The first-generation tablet won much admiration for its display but many users complained that it lacked in performance.

This latest rumor combined with other stories suggesting that the South Korean company is also planning to launch a mini 5.8-inch tablet aimed at gaming and rich media content suggests that Samsung is doing its best to cover all of the bases (in terms of display size) in the rapidly growing tablet market and is trying to second-guess Apple's next move as rumors also continue to mount in terms of what the next iPads will feature when launched later this year.
