The Wall Street Journal is confirming that Google plans to bring a tablet computer to market with Verizon Wireless. The details – including name, manufacturer, launch date and operating system (Android or Chrome OS?) are not yet known. Verizon’s CEO told Wall Street Journal, ”We’re looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience.”
Last month Google’s CEO reportedly told friends that his company was building a tablet device that will increase competition between Apple and Google. The move also casts some doubt as to whether Apple will open up iPad and iPhone to Verizon customers — something that has seemed increasingly likely in recent weeks.
