Motorola Dual-Core Android Tablet Invited to Verizon’s Super Bowl Party?
Recent rumors have it that Motorola’s dual-core Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet will be making a big splash for the Superbowl. Previously, Verizon had promised LTE-capable consumer devices in the first quarter, making the Superbowl launch date plausible. Moreover, with the carrier rolling out its LTE network to the 38 metropolitan areas–mostly NFL cities, a Superbowl debut would tie in nicely.
Motorola’s tablet was recently shown off at All Things Digital’s D: Dive Into Mobile event, and was spotted later in clearer pictures. The device is rumored to be available in both 7- and 10-inch form factors, with LTE support, and also to be hardware platform to debut Google’s tablet-optimized Android 3.0 Honeycomb platform. It was previously codenamed Everest and Stingray, though the final launch name is unknown; MOTO PAD is a possibility.
