With Apple selling millions of iPads, it looks as if Motorola is finally jumping in the game with an unnamed Android tablet of its own.
Motorola is developing a digital tablet device that will allow users to watch television on it, as the US mobile phone group attempts to chip away at a market established byÂ Appleâ€™s popular iPad.
The device, which will have a 10-inch screen and operate on Googleâ€™s Android software, could launch as early as this autumn in the US.Â Â (Financial Times)
According to the Financial Times, the Android tablet will rely heavily upon Verizon’s FiOS TV service which will allow the device to compete against Apple’s vast media library from iTunes.
While Motorola’s “DroidPad” could tap into Google’s extensive Android app market (similar to how Apple uses its iOS market to inflate the number of apps available for the iPad), they will probably need to ask developers to create tablet specific apps as super sizing mobile apps tends to give consumers “eyesoritous.”
