I don't know for sure what my minimum pixel density for a tablet would be, but right now I'm shooting for 200+. The N7 has 215ppi.
Yes, I think the higher density will make a difference, but I don't think it needs to be >300dpi like iPad/iPhone. And given the tradeoff in terms of CPU/GPU power consumption I'd prefer it to be only as much as it needs to be so my eyes don't register any lack of smoothness at normal viewing distance, and no more than that.
