Internet search giant Google has launched a new Nexus 10 tablet and music service to challenge rival Apple iPad and iTunes.

The firm claims its Nexus 10 tablet, made in association with Samsung, features 'the highest resolution display in the world,' with 300 pixels per inch compared to the iPad's 264ppi 'retina display'.

The 319 pound device will go on sale in November, and will also be the first device to feature Google's new 'Play Music Service,' the Telegraph reports.

According to the paper the service will allow users to synchronise up to 20,000 tracks they already own with any internet-connected device as well as buy tracks online in the same way that they can from Apple iTunes.

Google also announced the Nexus 4 mobile phone, made with LG, features a 4.7" screen, wireless charging and an enhanced camera.

According to the paper, the advanced camera allows users to create immersive panoramas covering all the angles they can see, in the same manner as Google's Streetview service.
