Google will soon release an Android-powered tablet to compete Apple’s newly released iPad.
According to the report, Schmidt of Google told friends about the project.
Eric E. Schmidt, chief executive of Google, told friends at a recent party in Los Angeles about the new device, which would exclusively run the Android operating system. 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.
It was also learned that Google is secretly experimenting along with few publishers in delivery of books and magazines and other features that should be included with the tablet.
