Motorola will unveil an Android Tablet at the CES 2011. The company is teasing the new tablet already ahead of CES. The Motorola Tablet is seen as the first real competition to the dominating Apple iPad. We already reported that the rumored Motorola Super Bowl 2011 ad is featuring the new Android Tablet. Now NFL player Chad Ochocinco added more credibility to this rumor with a tweet (via TFTS) that he will be getting the new Motorola Tablet to kick off 2011. Chad Ochocinco plays for the Cincinnati Bengals and has been promoting Motorola already at the Super Bowl 2010 with the OCNN network. Ochocinco is a very "connected" NFL player. His Twitter account has over 1.5 million followers.
Motorola and its partners (Verizon?) will have to unlock marketing hell to make any impact with the new Tegra 2 Android Honeycomb based tablet against the Apple iPad. The Super Bowl XLV is the ideal venue to spend big marketing bucks and also have the chance to reach a large number of consumers.
Super Bowl 2011 takes place on February 6th. I assume that Motorola will ship the new Android Tablet they announce at CES 2011 around that time. If not, a Super Bowl ad would be a not very effective investment. The new Motorola Tablet is ideally already available for purchase during the big game.

Just like last year, I4U News will be featuring again the Super Bowl for Geeks Guide. Of course the Super Bowl 2011 for Geeks Guide will be all about the Super Bowl Commercials and not the big game. The Super Bowl XLV will take place in the Dallas Cowboys stadium on February 6th 2011.
