LG Scraps Android 2.2 Tablet Plans
South Korean handset maker LG Electronics Inc said yesterday that they were calling off plans to launch an Android 2.2 tablet. According to an unnamed official, Android 2.2 ‘Froyo’ is not the best platform for them to launch their first tablet on.
“We plan to introduce a tablet that runs on the most reliable Android version … We are in talks with Google to decide on the most suitable version for our tablet and that is not Froyo 2.2.”
As the number 3 player in the mobile phone world, LG has been going through some shakeups of late, recently letting go of its CEO. As they push forward trying to grab a sizable chunk of the smart phone market, they cannot afford too many missteps. To LG’s credit, they are taking the right approach in waiting for a future version of Android for a better tablet experience. Google readily admits that tablet makers would be better served using Honeycomb.
