Reuters has reported that LG Electronics Inc has stated that they will not release a tablet based on Android 2.2. Therefore, the hopes of seeing one release by the end of the year will not happen. "We plan to introduce a tablet that runs on the most reliable Android version ... We are in talks with Google to decide on the most suitable version for our tablet and that is not Froyo 2.2," said an LG official. This could mean that they are waiting for Android 3.0.
We believe this is not a bad idea. As Android 2.2 is not optimized for tablets, manufacturers may be better off waiting and introducing a tablet-optimized Android.
