Put your credit card back in your wallet, purse and/or murse. There is no timeline or manufacturer attached to the Android tablet that Verizon is working on with Google. There’s really nothing surprising about this quasi announcement.
Yes, we get that everyone is scrambling to get a tablet out into the market to compete with the iPad. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last two years, we’ve all known about the giant iPhone. So why are we still waiting for Windows 7 and Android tablets? Every manufacturer under the sun announced or demoed an Android tablet at CES and, yet, none of them have come to market. What is the deal?
