Google to relent and finally let tablets get the Android Market?

Liliputing is reporting that the Android Market may well be on its way to Android tablets like the Archos 5 and 7, and the Camangi WebStation.  In the beginning, the Market was distributed to devices that bore the “with Google” stamp of approval but this may be a harbinger to the Chrome OS tablet as well.

Has Google cracked the code of various form factors and screen sizes?  Possibly, but this move certainly cannot hurt their chances of Android 2.1/2.2 and beyond getting on more and more devices.  Remember, it’s a pure numbers game with installs and activations right now and Android has just started to gain ground in emerging markets.
