Earlier this month, there were rumors that the new Motorola Droid Android tablet computer – codenamed StingRay – could be launching as early as October of this year. The speculations came about following leaked screenshots from a Verizon inventory system that contained references to the new Droid tablet. However, it now looks like that rumor was false. In a recent chat, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha has indicated that a Droid tablet may not make it at least until next year till the company was done perfecting all the features. Jha said,
“I will only develop a tablet if it is sufficiently compelling. Hopefully, that is early next year.”
What Jha could be referring to is the fact that the current version of Android OS does not seem to be customized for tablets. Google director of mobile products, Hugo Barra had exclaimed this recently and it is possible that Motorola is waiting for Android 3.0 aka Gingerbread to release before making the new Droid Tablet available in the hands of the public.
