Even before the iPad became a reality, we knew that Android tablets would be coming in 2010. The fact that Google is going to have a big hand in the burgeoning new tablet market comes as no surprise. What IS surprising, is the fact that Google is apparently designing a tablet themselves.

The New York Times reports that, at a party in LA, CEO Eric Schmidt told his (apparently mouthy) friends that Google is developing an Android tablet. The company is currently working in “stealth mode” and courting publishers and other content producers. Nexus tablet, anyone?

That same article stated that HP is also working on an Android version of their upcoming HP Slate. This 6” tablet has been nicknamed “the half-pint”. We've also got some new Courier buzz now; battery life is currently the main design problem, and early 2011 is the most likely time of release.
