LG will wait on Gingerbread for its Android tablet
What's a company to do these days if it wants to make a difference in the cut-throat Android tablet world? Why, wait for an actual tablet Android OS, of course.

This is exactly the way LG intends to go with its plans for a slate running Google's mobile OS. A company official has leaked some info that LG is shelving the Froyo tablet project, and will jump on the bandwagon when the next, tablet-optimised, version of Android is ready. 

Codenamed Gingerbread, it is supposed to focus on the Android UI experience, and is expected to be finished some day around the end of this year, ready for appearance in tablets in Q1 of 2011. Smart move, LG, especially if you want your tablet to be more productive than Apple's iPad.
