Samsung to introduce Android tablet this quarter Samsung has said it will introduce a tablet this quarter running Google's Android operating system, joining the stables of tech firms releasing tablets by the end of the year.
Nokia, LG, HP and RIM have confirmed, or unconfirmed tablets set for release by the end of the year, running either Android, WebOS or BlackBerry operating systems.

The market leader, the Apple iPad, sold an astonishing 3 million units in its first 90 days.

Samsung's tablet will have a smaller 7-inch screen, but there are no other details available, not even what version of Android the device will ship with.

LG will launch its Android tablet in the Q4, RIM will release its BlackBerry tablet in the Q4, and Microsoft has said it hopes to release Windows 7 tablets in the Q4, as well.

All of the brands Ive read about in the article (except apple,which ironically usually delivers) are good at dates and promises but when it comes to actualy launch schedule and details..in one word- balls

The lesson?

Unless a company has a vested interest in trying to push a mobile OS that they own, they just weigh the facts and features...and then they end up with Android!

Yeah...but android is free to everyone; HP could already have an android tablet in stores by now, setting Android device sales records...but that just wouldn't be HP; instead they spent a fortune on buying a dead company (Palm), and now they feel obligated to spend another fortune on trying to make a PalmOS-based tablet that will be a huge failure...now that is the HP I know.
