One of the devices I saw last week is a 10" display with 299dpi; I
strongly suspect it is the one that will be used in this Nexus tablet.

The other device is already on sale. A Sharp SH-10D smartphone sold by
NTT Docomo.  It has a 329 dpi display.

I don't know what the browser on the SH-10D is doing, (It's running
Android 4.0) but, given the physical size (4.5"), if they were making
the css pixels smaller, the content would be unreadable. I expect they
are actually using 3x.
