Motorola’s CEO Sanjay Jha is so pleased with the success of his Droid smartphone that he is planning to create a tablet based around the OS by the end of the year.
Speaking at an Investor’s Conference Jha said that the tablet will be between seven and 10-Inches and will act as a “companion product” to HDTVs.
Jha said his outfit is jolly interested in getting into this whole “convergence between mobility and home”. We guess that he means that he will be building mobile homes next.
The tablet will use Android, as the open-source operating system as this has been a run away success for the company.
Jha moved to kill off any rumours that Motorola was thinking about creating its own mobile OS.
However, he did say that for Motorola said to remain competitive, however, it must continue to improve its MotoBLUR user interface.
MotoBLUR is installed on phones like the Cliq, which runs Android, with BLUR on top. Jha says BLUR 2.0 will be released later this year, as well.
He added that there will be new Droid products released soon.
