Google and HP working on Android tablets?!

Android on a tablet device? Hmmm..

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Apr 13, 2010 8:06 am

The New York Times has made mention of Google's plans to mix up the tablet world with a slate computer of its own in the near future. Eric Schmidt made some brief comments about it at a party in LA recently in which he stated it would be exlusively based on Android, which doesn't make a great deal of sense considering Google's intensive Chrome project.

It seems Google is trying to go stealth on this one for the time being and is said to be actively searching for publishers at the minute to assist in the delivery of books, magazines and other types of content.

 

It's also been mentioned that HP is working on bringing another Android tablet of its own to market as well, this a 6-inch sized model that's been nicknamed "the half-pint".

 

Time will tell how Android fares as the right choice for a tablet device. Google seem to feel confident they can make it work.
