Rumors Suggest Google Developing Honeycomb Tablet

Google has been somewhat hands off with developing devices using their Android operating system, with only two phones to their name. Google’s Nexus One and Nexus S, developed in partnership first with HTC and then with Samsung, have been the only devices from the company. Rumors have suggested, however, that they may be bringing a Nexus tablet into the fold.

According to PCWorld, who has translated an article by Eldar Murtazin writing for Mobile-Review, Google is expected to develop a tablet with LG in order to launch a Nexus branded device with the Android 3.0 Honeycomb software.

Google’s foray into the tablet market may be complicated. The Nexus One had been faced with limited success, and the Nexus S is currently on the market using one of the few “pure” editions of the heavily fragmented Android OS. Backed by the uncertainty of the Nexus brand, Google’s attempt to break into the “year of the tablet,” may prove somewhat difficult.

The “year of the tablet” has already brought the Motorola Xoom, the iPad 2 and many smaller brand tablets, but others are on the horizon. The BlackBerry PlayBook and the HP TouchPad are both expected before the third quarter of 2011, leaving Google with heavy competition.

Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet will carry advantages over older tablets, however, including stronger hardware and, obviously, Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Some older tablets running Android 2.2 or 2.3 may not be able to upgrade to Android 3.0.

No technical specs or release date has yet to be launched, leaving this device a total uncertainty. The heavy competition in the tablet market has left developers in heavy competition with one another.
