We’ve been hearing rumors of Verizon toying with the idea of an Android tablet for a while, but now it seems the rumors are going to turn into reality. Reports are coming in that Motorola, makers of the largely successful ‘Droid’ line of Android smartphones, are developing a tablet which will allow users to watch TV. The device, which is slated to debut as early as this Fall and feature a 10-inch screen, is also likely to be connected to Verizon’s FiOS television service. Google and Apple are seen by many as the leading competitors for smartphone supremacy, and this new device would allow Android to step further into the tablet market largely dominated by the iPad. Speaking of Android, this new tablet has the potential to harbor some form of Google TV functionality, whether as a remote or perhaps utilizing a slimmed down version of the GTV software itself. The device would also feature full Flash 10.1 support, something Apple continues to snub in favor of HTML5. Verizon, Motorola, and Google have all declined to comment at this time, but for now it appears the cat is out of the bag and the speculation can truly begin.
