Early Google Tablet mockups running Chrome OS
Google is cooking up an Android-powered tablet

With Apple's iPad and iPhone OS 4.0 soaking up the majority of tech headlines these days -- along with side stories detailing the ongoing battle between Apple and Adobe -- most people are ready for a break from Apple.

And if there's one company with enough clout to drown out the buzz surrounding an Apple product, it's Google. According to a report by the New York Times, Google will soon be selling its own tablet device. Although the NYT article isn't exactly clear on the matter, it appears that Google will be selling it own branded Tablet -- a la the Nexus One.

According to Google CEO Eric Schmidt, the new device will run Google's Android operating system. Naturally, the Tablet will have access to Google's growing Android Market and will double as an eBook reader.

This isn't the first time that we've heard of a Google Tablet. Before the iPad was even revealed in January, the company was already airing video demonstrations of a Tablet concept. However, those concepts were running Chrome OS instead of the more smartphone-oriented Android OS.

With Apple having sold 300,000 iPads on its opening day (today, the number sold appears to have surpassed 450,000), expect to see a number of new players enter the market. HP will soon be releasing its Slate which will feature a 1.63GHz Atom processor and will be priced from $549. Microsoft also refuses to shoot down reports that it will launch the dual-screen “Courier” later this year.

When the Google Tablet does eventually hit the market, one can only hope that it will address a few of the shortcomings of the iPad including the lack of cameras, USB ports, and an SD slot for digital camera media.





"Well, there may be a reason why they call them 'Mac' trucks! Windows machines will not be trucks." -- Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer
