Motorola tablet - Droid name = Fail

After a handful of big-name manufacturers have confirmed plans to bring out an iPad-like tablet running on Google's Android software, we're seeing some new details on Motorola's entry to the race.

At least, that's according to the latest reports. It will reportedly be a full-size 10-inch tablet, the same as the iPad. It will also apparently use Android 3.0, also known as Gingerbread, which is what Google has said is the optimal version of its OS for a tablet device.

Motorola's announcement of its tablet was very quiet and passed over by a lot of people. But that's because it doesn't have a lot to say on it yet.

The company has confirmed it wants to release a tablet but sees no value in really doing anything about it until next year. That's when Android 3.0 will be available.

What's more interesting is Motorola's codename - the Stingray. At least, we hope it's a codename. Motorola is the manufacturer of the top-selling Android phone, which is also the second-best-selling phone in the US. The Droid may not even be close to the sales volume of the iPhone, but no other phone in the country comes close to the sales volume of the Droid.

So, to do anything other than use the Droid name in its flagship tablet produce would be sheer idiocy for Motorola. When time comes to fully announce this device next year, it better be called the Droid Pad or the Droidbook, or something with the word "Droid" in it.
