Google to Enter Tablet Fray

google-android-tablet-sz-041210.jpg I want a tablet so bad, but Apple's iPad price tag just doesn't agree with my bank account and (sorry Windows fans) anything running Microsoft scares me. I've been a big fan of the Android OS since testing Motorola's Droid cell phone, so I have high hopes for any tablet that plans to run the Google made operating system. When I heard el goog, as I like to call them, was working on the actual hardware side of things I got even more excited about the idea of finally getting a tablet into my hands.

Rumors are swirling that Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, leaked info about the company's tablet work to friends at a recent LA party -- not to be confused with an LA Reid party. According to the New York Times, "People with direct knowledge of the project -- who did not want to be named because they said they were unauthorized to speak publicly about the device -- said the company had been experimenting in 'stealth mode' with a few publishers to explore delivery of books, magazines and other content on a tablet."

I just hope that, if Google launches its own tablet, that it stamps a realistic price tag on the thing.
