Google Android tablet reportedly coming to Verizon

That rumored Android tablet form Google has been recently confirmed by Verizon’s CEO Lowell McAdam, who said the largest North America carrier is already working with Google to bring the tablet to its network.

More exactly, Verizon’s CEO declared to The Wall Street Journal that the company is “looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience.” He didn’t disclose further details, like the features, launch date, or the price of the upcoming tablet.

Anyway, all this makes perfect sense: AT&T has the iPhone and the iPad, while Verizon gets high-end Android smartphones (like the HTC Incredible) and Android tablets.

Lowell McAdam agreed that “Verizon has been handicapped by its CDMA network technology” and that’s why it has some catching up to do when it comes to non-phone devices (like tablets and Amazon’s Kindle – which is available through AT&T).

Apple has already proved that a tablet can be quite successful (it already sold 1 million iPads), so both Google and Verizon are probably confident that their tablet won’t be a flop.

Samsung is also working on an Android tablet, but this might not be launched in the US
