The Google concord with LG and Motorola, that Android is not yet ready. Hence a tablet computer from LG may be likely to come out in 2011. At LG Electronics, it seems, ‘patience is a virtue’. The manufacture says that unlike the other companies i.e. Research In Motion, Samsung, Dell and others who rushed out their tablets to contend with the runway success of Apple, the iPad, LG is not in a hurry to rush out its Android powered tablet computer to hit the market. LG, the south-Korean based tablet has already announced that, it has prepared to launch a tablet by the end of 2010.

As per a report from Reuters, an unnamed official from LG said that the Google’s latest version of mobile Operating System is not so good for a tablet. He also added that LG is planning to launch a tablet that runs on the most dependable Android version. Talks are going on with Google to make a most appropriate version for LG’s tablet, and Froyo 2.2 is not their piece of cake.

LG is not the only mobile phone maker which is consecrating that it will launch no tablet before its time. Motorola, the US based company, is also following the similar announcement and stated it on Sept 16. At a conference of Bank technology investors in Deutsche, Sanjay Jha, the co- CEO of Motorola, said that the company is a waiting for the most reliable operating system for its device.

Hugo Barra, director of mobile products, at Google announced a tech blog, in this July that the market of Android for applications will not be convenient to use on tablet devices, which do not run applications in the right manner.

Those devices that do and those that do not run market will be unit specific, but Froyo is not modified to achieve maximum efficiency on tablets, as reported by Barra. If one wants the applications to run Android Market on that platform, it just wouldn’t; as Froyo is not made just for that grade factor. Yet, some of the major companies are not willing or even unable to wait for its optimization. For instance, Galaxy Tab was already unleashed by Samsung and also a larger version of Samsungs’ Galaxy phones. Dell also launched its tablet ‘the Streak’. Both these tablet computers run Android 1.6 Operating System. Research in Motion (RIM), the maker of Blackberry Smartphones, last week announced its tablet, “the Blackberry playbook” which will run a Neutrino, a new operating system developed by QNX.
