Few hours after the rumors of Google unveiling a Chrome OS tablet, comes the next big thing.
Digitimes Research senior Mingchi Kuo claims that Google is working with Motorola in getting ready its first official Android Tablet device that would run search giant’s Android 3.0.
The deal is claimed to be similar to that of G1, first android phone on Tmobile: Two companies and their telecom partners have the rights to label their names on the device, could see Motorola partner with Verizon to distribute the device.
Motorola’s tablet is expected to feature Nvidia’s Tegra 2 platform with a 10.1 panel supplied by Sharp which is thinner than Apple’s iPad but operates at a lower brightness. Google is said to be directly involved in setting the specifications of the Android 3.0 tablet, making sure that the user experience is consistent.
Android 3.0 & Chrome OS Hybrid Tablet?
Notably, these hardware specs, telecom providers appear to be exactly identical as Chrome OS Tablet, the difference being only the OEM. It won’t be a big surprise if Google actually ships a single device which brings best of both worlds: Android 3.0 Tablet running Chrome browser
Kuo estimates that the tablet will ship over 2 million units in 2011, there is no mention of a launch date as yet.
