Samsung logo © Axel Schmidt/dapd/APAs Apple (AAPL) wades into the 7-inch tablet market with the pending release of an "iPad Mini," rival Google (GOOG) is not sitting still.


Supply-chain checks suggest that Google is working with Samsung (SSNLF) to co-brand a 10.1-inch Nexus tablet intended to compete with the full-sized iPad, CNET reported.


"It's going to be a high-end device," Richard Shim, an analyst at NPD Display Search, told CNET. The new Nexus reportedly will have a higher pixel density than the Retina display featured on the latest version of the iPad.

The rest of 2012 is poised to be huge for Apple (AAPL) and it's all due to one product: the iPhone 5.
