Google looks set to launch its own Android tablet to compete with Amazon Kindle Fire for music, video and apps, according to CNET. The Android tablet will have a 1280x800 resolution display that's 7 inches across, and will begin production in April with roughly 1.5 - 2 million units. That's a lot of Android tablets for Google to work around, pitting it against the Amazon Kindle Fire and the iPad 3. There's also talk of a smaller iPad Mini due later this year, which if it proves to be true, will have three tablet computers to go toe-to-toe in the smaller, coat pocket-sized tablet.
Google's Android tablet is going to operate on Android 4.0 a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich, and compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire at a price of $199. This will also open up a whole new range of Android apps at a size between the standard Android app and an Android phone. This will liven up the Android tablet vs Amazon Kindle Fire and Android tablet vs. iPad battle. It will also make the Android Music vs iTunes and Amazon MP3 race burn just a little bit hotter. 2012 ... the year that digital mobile technology and wireless split wide open
Which makes the new Google Android tablet perfect for music, videos and movies on the go ... You could take that daddy to a music festival and shoot all of your videos, and still get a screen with more real estate than an iPhone or Android phone. You could watch music videos or hit the Android Music Store at the Android Market while waiting in line at the store, or turn it into an extension of your car stereo and stream your whole music library off of Google Music.
