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.
