Motorola MotoPad to usher in Android 3.0 HoneycombNovember 15, 2010: 9:37 AM ET
A Tweet from a trusted Android insider sparks speculation that Motorola will be the launch platform for Google's new tablet OS.
Motorola has long been rumored to be building a tablet based on Android 3.0 OS. In August, Motorola (MOT) and Verizon (VZ) were linked to an Android tablet project aimed at bringing Verizon's FiOS TV service to mobile users. At the time, reports said the 10-inch tablet was due by the end of the year. Perhaps there is more than one MotPad out there.
The MotoPad has been rumored for the better part of a year. In May, Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha said ...
"I think that a companion 7- to 10-inch device in a home will become very important, [both] as an augmentation to your TV experience [and] also as a way of walking around the house and streaming TV to that device. I think we're very focused in participating in this convergence that's coming between mobility and home, and I think you will actually see some products from us in a very short period of time."
