    [Rumor] Verizon to launch 10" Motorola Tablet w/ Android 2.2 and FiOS TV



    So, we have all heard the recent rumors that Verizon and Motorola have combined forces (yet again) to work on a tablet. Specs, availability, features, and price point have all been a bit murky, however, as both companies have been hush-hush on the project. But yesterday, for the first time, details on the tablet began to emerge. Reported by Financial Times, the Motorola/Verizon tablet will have a 10 inch screen and launch with Android 2.2 (and consequently, Flash support will be inherent). But most interestingly, the tablet may be running some version of the Verizon FiOS service. This would certainly be a welcome addition, and (along with Flash capabilities) would really one-up "rival developers" (think, iPad). Expect the Motorola tablet to be thinner than the iPad, include a Mobile Hotspot feature, and have two cameras (one on the front for video conferencing, and another for taking photos).

    Verizon FiOS TV on a tablet? Sounds like the perfect marriage to me. But as we all know, Verizon enjoys squeezing every last penny out of their customers, so don't expect these services to come cheap. Also, let's just pray, that when they mention FiOS TV, they don't actually mean V Cast TV and Video. Pricing and availability for the Verizon/Motorola tablet are still unclear, but Financial Times' sources are saying we may see the device as early as "autumn" in the US.

    Head over to Android Tablet Forum for the latest Android tablet news and rumors.

    some version of their TV service. details are murky, at best. like i said in the OP, let's hope it's very different from V Cast TV/Videos

    This isthe first tablet I have read about that just may be the iPad killer. Granted Apple has it loyal customers who will stick with the iPad but for people who haven't chosen a side team Android team Apple, I could see them buying the moto tablet. Obviously this is all hearsay as of now but this is exciting.

    another thought: if this comes out in Autumn, this will probably be running the same chipset as the Droid X / Droid 2... the TI OMAP 3640... would we be happy with this?
