What’s even more surprising, LG is not alone in its extremely cautious strategy. Lenovo seems determined to wait for a while too. Lenovo doesn’t have much presence at the mobile market in general but seems to be following the widespread trend and be shifting to a new activity. Luckily, it has got some clue from LG and hold on a bit.
According to the latest rumors, the company has put off its plans to deliver a tablet and is determined to wait for a more tablet-friendly iteration of the Android OS to come out. In general, the enterprise is going to deliver a tablet 4-5 months after the release of the tablet-friendly Android version. Such wording is quite a tricky one as allows the company some room for maneuver. The next Android iteration is to be at the end of the year but nobody would bet that it is the best one for tablets. Moreover, according to Google’s representatives, it is the next one, [[http://developer.android.com/about/versions/android-3.0-highlights.html Honeycomb]] which suits best for these needs. So, the first Lenovo tablet is to be unveiled somewhere next summer providing Google meets promised milestones and deadlines and releases the tablet-friendly iteration in time.
However, such cautious strategy may well turn out to be a winning one. Lots of netizens following Jobs’ critical remarks are sure that the Galaxy Tab is dead on arrival due to many reasons. First of all, because of using a platform iteration not suitable for tablets, secondly, due to a very small screen size – just a bit bigger than that of a regular smartphone and, thirdly, due to the price which many users condemned as unreasonable and unbelievable given the mentioned drawbacks.

It is unclear what will become of all of that. Maybe, all the tablets using the current Android iteration will fail and those waiting for Honeycomb will vice versa win and be a success. But Samsung is not the only one in its break necking intention to deliver a tablet running Froyo this year. Toshiba has done the same, though its tablet is much bigger – about 11 inches – and will use its own online app store not relying on what has already been built by iPhone developers in our company.
So, the situation with the Android tablets is quite a misty one. There are lots of rumors and even more different suppositions as to what will happen in this or that situation. Google is not determined to give out any more precious information which would clarify the matter. Unfortunately, its own position is also clear. No doubt, the company wants to deliver its own tablet and thus is creating obstacles for others. Not a very sportive manner of behavior but at the same time it’s not unusual at the market where there are no friends just temporary allies.
