During the Deutsche Bank Technology Conference yesterday, Motorola's co-CEO, Sanjay Jha, said that he hopes Motorola can develop a compelling Android tablet by early 2011, according to AFP.
"I will only develop a tablet if it is sufficiently compelling. Hopefully, that is early next year," Jha said, noting that he doesn't see the tablet market cannibalizing the smartphone market, but rather he sees tablets serving as extensions of smartphones.
Earlier this month, at the IFA tradeshow in Berlin, Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab Android tablet, which is expected to begin retailing on U.S. carriers shortly. Toshiba, Archos, and other OEMs have also already announced Android tablets.
