Motorola and Verizon Rumored to Be Making TV Tablet
The tablet market gets more crowded every day, but at least the latest news includes a bit of a twist. Motorola and Verizon are said to be working on an Android tablet that also has access to TV subscriptions.
We've been hearing about an Android tablet from Verizon for a while, but this is the first news that it will have a dedicated TV feature. Motorola already makes the FiOS set-top box that Verizon sells, which would make it easy for the company to embed FiOS technology in a tablet.
Verizon FiOS is a service for bringing cable and internet bundles to homes. A Verizon FiOS tablet would conceivably have access to the same channels over a 3G or possibly even 4G connection.
Sources for the Financial Times say the Verizon/Motorola FiOS tablet will be ready as early as this fall, but there are no further details about hardware specs or potential price.
