Before some months, we heard some rumor about Google Tablet and now its confirmed. WSJ has reported Verizon Wireless is working with Google on a tablet computer. The news came in after Verizon CEO Lowell Powell spoke about Google tablet in an interview to WSJ. He also says the Google tablet will be android based and we are “looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience.” One things is pretty clear from this statement: Google is working on a tablet device for a while, so I hope Google would send some heavy waves across iPad sales, but not as of now.
I have a big question on, Who is going to build the hardware? HP is busy with HP Hurricane and Dell working on a tablet device for its own. So who can it be? Well, my wild guess is MSI, who was previously spotted with a prototype of Android running tablet at CES this year. On the response to Google Tablet by Verizon, Google spokesman declined to comment on it, but their email statement announce “Anyone can take the Android platform and add code or download it to create a mobile device without restrictions.” Ultimately beyond the confirmation, the battle is going to get tougher between two network operators Verizon and AT&T and probably we need to wait for some time patiently for the launch of Google tablet.
