Norah Sheth, reporting for the Wall Street Journal:
Verizon Wireless is working with Google Inc. on a tablet computer, the carrier’s chief executive, Lowell McAdam, said Tuesday, as the company endeavors to catch up with iPad host AT&T Inc. in devices that connect to wireless networks.
The work 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. Verizon Wireless last year heavily promoted the Motorola Droid, which runs Google’s software.
I’m not surprised that Google would be working on an iPad-like device that runs Android. And, it makes complete sense for Verizon to be their carrier of choice. But, I find it incredibly odd that Android could be getting their iPad-like device before it gets a proper iPod touch-like device.
