Google Android Tablet Prototype
Apple may be the first to sell a million tablet computers, in part due to their massive application portal and market penetration, but Google says they are not far behind. We knew the Internet giant was planning a Google tablet, it would without a doubt run on a modified mobile Android OS, but the details were slim. Verizon Wireless CEO just announced they plan to work with Google on it; perhaps with what could lead to an interesting device, giving them a chance to make right what the iPad did wrong.
“We’re working on tablets together, for example. We’re looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience.” Verizon’s chief executive, Lowell McAdam told The Wall Street Journal.
Verizon is fishing for apps, they want to create a unique experience for Google’s iPad killer. But it won’t be until next year with their beefed up network that they will really be able to compete with AT&T. There is no word on who will be manufacturing the hardware for this device, but if history repeats itself we could be looking at an HTC tablet.
