LAS VEGAS--Polaroid introduced a 10-inch tablet at CES 2013, alongside a 7-inch tablet, in its attempt to compete in the tablet wars. The Polaroid M10 tablet, like its smaller counterpart the M7, has a 1,280x800-pixel IPS display and runs on Android 4.1. Both tablets also have a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and the option of expandable storage.

The M10 differentiates itself with a quad-core processor, a 5 megapixel rear camera, 16GB of internal storage, and HDMI connectivity. The M10 will be released in spring 2013 for $229.

The M10 sells for a great price at $229, but the 1,280x800-pixel resolution isn't as impressive on the M10 as it is on the M7. Compared with top-selling tablets larger than 7 inches, the M10's screen resolution is nothing to write home about.

Both the Google Nexus 10 and Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 tablets cost more than the M10 but offer higher resolutions, a standard that continues to be raised every year. The Nexus 10 has a resolution of 2,560x1,600 (299 ppi) and the Fire HD 8.9 has 1,920x1,200 pixels (254 ppi).

Few details have been released on both Polaroid tablets so look to CNET for more information and other CES 2013 tablet coverage
