Google, Verizon to launch tablet?
So now we get word that Google and Verizon want to put out a tablet together -- this news comes to us courtesy of a report in the Wall Street Journal.
The two companies have watched on the sidelines as Apple has blown out of the gate with its iPad, reportedly selling up to 1 million units in a month's time.
What do I think? I think the companies are moving way too slow in this environment. It looks like Apple will have at least a 6 month to 1 year headstart against any competing tablets. By the time competitors like Google and Verizon get their act together to release a tablet, the Apple iPad App Store will probably have tens of thousands of apps. And Apple will have released version 2.0 of the iPad, I'm sure.
I'm not counting out Google and Verizon however, because clearly there is a huge spot in the market for Android-based products.
But all I have to say is: come on, guys. What's taking so long?
