Yet another electronics manufacturer has announced plans to launch a tablet computer powered by Google’s Android operating system: LG. According to The Wall Street Journal, the device will launch in the fourth quarter of this year, though no other details were immediately available.
Motorola announced the launch of Flipout, its Android-powered compact smartphone. The Flipout runs on Google's Android 2.1 and comes with Motoblur, Motorola's custom user interface for Android phones. The Motoblur interface aggregates and syncs Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail and last.fm.
Google allowed its Big Cat out finally. The company made the announcement that everyone was waiting for — Google TV. While some glitches in the demo (with the Bluetooth keyboard) prevented it from being a “wow” moment, the implications are pretty clear what Google is going for. That is, the 4 billion TV users worldwide. Or rather, advertising to the 4 billion TV users worldwide.
