It looks like Google will also jump on the tablet bandwagon. Eric Schmidt, the company's CEO, said in an interview to Italian newspaper Corriere della Sea on Monday (Dec 19th) the company intends to release the first Nexus tablet in six months.
Schmidt said that Google's first tablet will be of extreme "high quality" setting a "brutal competition" to Apple's iPad. After commenting on the competition, Schmidt congratulated Apple for their force to create the tablet market by themselves transforming the product on a high-end first class need.
The major problem Google may face is consumer's reception to Android-based tablets, as Android will be obviously their tablet's OS. Android tablets have been struggling hard in the market, to the point that even HP TouchPad has managed to take a lead on dozens of them.
