Samsung is reportedly working on a 10-inch high end tablet, codenamed "Roma", in a bid to take on Google's Nexus 10.
A report from SamMobile via TechBlog.gr suggested that the South Korean firm is prepping a new tablet which could be unveiled in the next few weeks. The tablet reportedly packs many features similar to Nexus 10, but will differ with a thinner and lighter frame than the Google tablet.
