Apple's massive success with the iPad has shown that consumers are eager to buy tablet computers and there are hoards of makers rushing their offerings to market. The iPad continues to sell to the tune of millions each month all around the world. The holiday shopping season is coming up and that time is pivotal for many of the new tablets trying to come to market.
Motorola was expected to launch its first tablet in time for the holiday shopping season, but the maker has now announced that its tablet will not make it. According to Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha the Motorola tablet will not land until early 2011. Jha gave no specific reason the tablet would not make it this year other than to say that Motorola will not launch the tablet until it is competitive.
Google has already said that it does not think Froyo is appropriate for tablets. Perhaps Motorola is waiting for a new more tablet specific version of Android to launch. Jha said, "We want to make sure that any tablet that we deliver is competitive in the marketplace, and I think all of us will make sure that we will only deliver that when that occurs. Hopefully, that's early next year."
