Tom Krazit of Cnet on Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdams on a Verizon and Google branded tablet to compete with the iPhone:
We’re looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience.
Google’s response to Verizon:
Android is a free, open source mobile platform. This means that anyone can take the Android platform and add code or download it to create a mobile device without restrictions. The Android smartphone platform was designed from the beginning to scale downward to feature phones and upward to MID and netbook-style devices. We look forward to seeing what contributions are made and how an open platform spurs innovation, but we have nothing to announce at this time.
Phone companies have shown themselves to be so good at making gadgets that people truly want. I’m more interested to know what Google has in their archives. More innovation stolen from Apple?
