According to the New York Times, Google exec Eric Schmidt is all excited about developing an iPad rival. The tablet is being built in the utmost secrecy, and apparently it won’t be using Chrome OS, but Android!
As Devin Coldewey from Zikkir.com pointed out: it wouldn’t pay to use Chrome OS as there are currently no apps and that would render it pretty useless compared to the iPad.
So we’re up for yet another battle in the war between Apple and Google!
Since the launch of the ipad rumor has been rife that Google will develop a rival tablet.
This is what the New York Times wrote:
“Eric E. Schmidt, chief executive of Google, told friends at a recent party in Los Angeles about the new device, which would exclusively run the Android operating system. People with direct knowledge of the project (…) said the company had been experimenting in “stealth mode” with a few publishers to explore delivery of books, magazines and other content on a tablet”
Let’s hope the Gpad will iron out the teething problems the ipad is facing.
We may be in for a battle of the tablets, as latest news is that HP is building one as well!
