Samsung and LG to launch Android-based tablets this year

Samsung logoApple's successful strategy of moving a mobile OS up to a touchscreen tablet is proving popular as manufacturers look to produce tablets based on Google's Android OS. Both LG and Samsung plan to launch such products by the end of this year.

LG says that it plans to have a product ready to ship in the fourth quarter of this year, according to a Dow Jones Newswires report. Meanwhile, Samsung said that will launch a tablet with Galaxy branding in the third quarter.

These announcements come shortly after Cisco revealed plans to launch a business-oriented Android tablet in early 2011. Netbook maker MSI announced plans for a Tegra-based Android tablet earlier this year, though when we looked at the current state of such devices, none seemed ready for market.

Rumors have suggested that version 3.0 of Android is slated for release later this year and may contain features more suited to tablets, whereas Android 2.x will remain more suited to smartphones.
