Verizon Wireless is working with Google Inc. on a tablet computer,
Verizon Wireless Chief Executive Lowell McAdam said Tuesday, as
the company works to catch up with iPad host AT&T Inc. in the area
of devices that connect to wireless networks.
Tablets are part of the “next big wave of opportunities,” Mr.
McAdam said in an interview. He said the work on a tablet is part
of a deepening relationship between the largest U.S. wireless
carrier by subscribers and Google, which has carved out a space in
mobile devices with its Android operating system.
“We’re looking at all the things Google has in its archives that
we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience,” he said.
