Samsung is planning to release a 10in Android tablet with similar specifications to the company's Nexus 10, according to Greek website TechBlog.

Samsung's "Roma" tablet is expected to be a similar device to the Nexus 10 (pictured above).

According to the site, the new tablet is codenamed "Roma" and is expected to have similar specifications to the Samsung built but Google-branded Nexus 10, which launched late in 2012.

The rumours suggest the Samsung Roma tablet will essentially be a variant of the Nexus 10 running the company's TouchWIZ user interface on top of the standard Android interface.

The Nexus 10 is manufactured by Samsung but as it's a Google branded device, it runs stock Jelly Bean 4.2 software. It's also distributed through Google's online store rather than traditional bricks and mortar retailers.

The Samsung Roma tablet is expected to include a microSD card slot for memory expansion along with 4G connectivity, neither of which are available on the Nexus 10.

Other listed features of the as yet unannounced tablet include a 10.1in touchscreen with a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels (299ppi), a 1.7 GHz dual-core Exynos 5 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

The Samsung Roma is also expected to include a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera, and will be powered by a 9000mAh battery.

The Samsung sounds pretty good but I would like to "play with it" for a day before I purchased it. Because I know when I bought a Coby Android tablet for my step son for Christmas .. I was VERY disappointed that it could not access Google Play! So I did some more research - here is what I found - http://bit.ly/17GPL4I

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
