Google’s Own Tablet
Apr 15, 2010 10:01 AM –
With all the news and current headlines surrounding the release of the Apple iPad, other new and formidable devices have gone unnoticed of late (see WePad and Adam Tablet). That changed with the release of a report from the New York Times that Google CEO Eric Schmidt hinted that his company is creating its own similar device.
This news is somewhat expected as Google has gotten entrenched into the mobile hardware market, with the early 2010 release of the its flagship mobile smart phone, the Nexus One. It’s predictable that the ever-expanding Google would make its own competing device. Google would have a great one-two punch, considering that its OS is already featured on other devices for sale right now, and its own hardware is backed by the behemoth Android.
Google is working to position itself to outright own technology from all sides of the spectrum, enabling themselves to compete effectively and become a major player alongside Microsoft, Apple, RIM, and all other contenders in the technology and mobile business. Google is the only operator that could make a device to openly knock of the market of iPad, as the Android market can now provide apps, and Google’s very own Docs as well as other applications directly from the cloud. It’s a fight we are ready to see.
No official word of the device specs or hardware maker, but I am excited at the possibility of a Google Tablet.
