Motorola to launch a 10-inch Internet Tablet running Android Gingerbread in November?

27 Jul

Motorola is expected to launch an Android-based Internet Tablet with a 10-inch display during the holiday season this year, according to The Street, which is quoting analyst Ashok Kumar, who has a history of big misses and some hits. While Motorola’s ambitions to launch an Internet Tablet does not surprise us, what is shocking in the report is that this device would be running on the next version of Android, codenamed Gingerbread.



It is already the end of July and we are yet to see devices running Android 2.1 aka Froyo and this speculation that Gingerbread might come on a device in about four months from now will only increase confusion and fragmentation of the OS.



Imagine this – consumers are still trying to figure out whether their Android phones running on Android 2.1 would get a Froyo update or not. Considering that there are no Android 2.2 devices available in the market, new buyers will now not only have to decide a new phone on the basis of whether it will get a Froyo update but also consider whether their spanking new phone will become outdated in less than six months with a new version of Android.

    I hope it is priced around $399 to have any success in the market place. Wonder what HTC’s tablet will look like
