Verizon CEO McAdam on Android tablets and 4G smartphones
About a week ago Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam let it be known that his company is collaborating with Google on a tablet device. Obviously, the result of this collaboration will be the optimization of the Android OS so that it works fine on a tablet, but which manufacturer is going to produce the actual device? Well, Big Red's chief might just have answered that question.

At the Reuters Global Technology Summit, McAdam has revealed that Motorola, Samsung and LG are working on Android-powered tablets. And wait until we tell you that these babies are expected to hit the market sometime in the second half of the year. Now that's what we call good news!

You did not assume that we've started this post only to discuss tablets, did you? It also turns out the official has said that their first LTE Android phones will be manufactured by LG, Motorola and HTC and should be out by this time next year. According to the source, all LTE-capable tablets and phones will first run on Verizon's existing CDMA network, with an option for a later upgrade to LTE compatibility. Whether all this will come true however, is another story.
