NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--Verizon Wireless is working with Google Inc. (GOOG) on a tablet computer, the carrier's chief executive, Lowell McAdam, said Tuesday. The company is working to catch up with iPad host AT&T Inc. (T) in the area of devices that connect to wireless networks.
Tablets are part of the "next big wave of opportunities," McAdam said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. He said the work on a tablet is part of a deepening relationship between the largest U.S. wireless carrier by subscribers and Google, which has carved out a space in mobile devices with its Android operating system.

"We're looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience," he said.
Verizon Wireless, a joint venture of Verizon Communications (VZ) and Vodafone Group (VOD, VOD.LN), declined to add details on timing of a joint Google-Verizon tablet, or which manufacturer might make it.
