Eric Schmidt: Google’s Own ‘iPad Killer’ Coming Within Six Months

Eric Schmidt: Google’s Own ‘iPad Killer’ Coming Within Six Months

Outspoken Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt has spoken out about a possible Google Nexus branded tablet “of the highest quality” to be released in the next six months to up Google’s competition against the iPad.

The comments were offered during an interview with Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera, reports Engadget, stating that “in the next six months we plan to market a tablet of the highest quality.”

Due to the translation, this could either mean that they’ll renew their efforts in marketing Android tablets, or that they could release a tablet of their own (or in close partnership with another manufacturer), like they did with the Nexus smartphone.

Considering that Schmidt has been referring to the move as the latest stage in the “brutal competition” between Google and Apple, however, it seems as though he’s referring to something a bit stronger than a marketing push.

Schmidt has also claimed that Google is working on a voice-controlled “assistant” technology of their own, which would likely be added to the tablet, as well as future Google smartphones.

At any rate, considering that Android tablets have so far utterly failed to compete with the iPad, Apple is rather unlikely to cower in fear at the prospect of a Google-championed Android tablet…
