News, Rumors

With the iPad already out to a significant head start, it’s only a matter of time before a slew of competing tablet devices start to hit the market. That said, Digitimes reported earlier today that Google is working on an Android tablet of its own, and the company is reportedly looking to work with Motorola to supply the hardware. Notably, Motorola is behind the Droid X, often touted as a legit iPhone competitor.

Motorola’s tablet PC will feature the Tegra 2 platform from Nvidia and a 10.1-inch panel supplied by Sharp. The panel has a lower brightness than that of Apple’s iPad, but is thinner in size. The tablet PC will be manufactured by Motorola and is set for mass production by the end of 2010, Kuo noted.

Google is also said to have been heavily involved in setting the specifications of the Android 3.0 tablet, including its user interface to ensure a good user experience, and the device is expected to ship over two million units in 2011, Kuo added.
