Motorola's rumored Android tablet would integrate with Verizon's FiOS digital TV system?
With summer winding down, there are plenty of companies already looking toward the busy fall period when holiday shopping will begin to ramp up. Left and right, everywhere you turn there are more companies making announcements that they are heading into the growing tablet computing market – which is captured heavily by Apple's iPad. Much like how we witnessed Android's full explosion into the market thanks to the ever popular Motorola DROID last fall, there are whispers that Moto is in the process of also making their mark in this reestablished competitive market by launching their own Android powered tablet. The speculations point to a 10.1” tablet running on Android and integrating with Verizon's FiOS digital television system, but neither Motorola or Verizon have come out to officially confirm details or its development. What's even more surprising is the notion that we might see it launch as early as this fall in the US. Other rumored features include two cameras for photos & video calls, built-in Mi-Fi ability to share its 3G connectivity over Wi-Fi, Flash support, and a body that's believed to be thinner and lighter than Apple's very own appealing iPad. If they're intent on bringing this out to the market by this fall, one would only expect to hear some official word surface in the near future regarding this product.

A Motorola tablet on Verizon... What a waste of money. And probably wont sell all too well. The droid x is basically a mini tablet but with a phone. Are they doing this to compete with the ipad? I don't even know anyone with an ipad or wants one. Whatever.

If this tablet was only 5 inch like the dell streak. I would agree with you but a massive 10 inch? Come on, that's money in the works! Android 2.2 with the latest specs and full flash support. You got greatness in the making. I have become a huge moto droid follower and i will def be picking this up.

not sure if the price is right I would get one, 10" is a little big for me however. I looked at the kmart 7" one they had on sale last week for $150 and I got a raincheck it would be nice to have a little more space on the screen but would need to be droid 2.2 to be great

Everyone knows nowadays when they say Q4, it means the end of Q4...so in similar sense, fall release means near if not at the beginning of winter. So I say, no official words until the end of November at the earliest.

Wow! This is awesome news...seems like people are hating! for what? This is an example of another company or companies being competitive as a consumer this is good stuff it gives us more options to choose from. Android/Google is trying to take over and Motorola is going to help them do it. I mean think about it. A tablet with Verizon's 3G or 4G network plus WiFi, adobe flash and FiOS digital television system this could be big also don't mention a camera and video recording. I hope this play out because I'll be all over it!
