The Motorola Gingerbread Android Tablet Demoed With Google's Andy Rubin at D: Dive Into Mobile conference

Google has  busy couple of days.Not just do it announce and release its latest eBook service yesterday, the search giant finally pressed out the SDK for Android 2.3 and unveiled  Samsung Nexus S, its next technically supported Android smartphone.

It seems Google did not need to stop there either. Whilst demonstrating the Nexus S handset to delegates at the D: Dive into Mobile conference, Google's Andy Rubin also pulled out a new Motorola Android-powered tablet, all but confirming rumours Google had been working with Motorola to release the first Gingerbread powered tablet.

In August, it was recommended that smartphone manufacturers were in negotiations with Google to protected rights to develop an Gingerbread tablet, after that Motorola were apparently Google's "priority choice". Digitimes speculated that Motorola's tablet would feature Nvidia's Tegra 2 platform with a 10.1 panel complete by Sharp and it appears they were not far off.

Rubin noted to the tablet was certainly sporting an NVIDIA dual-core 3D processor and from images, the device seems to be larger than the 7"inch devices presently on the market, leading us to consider the Motorola tablet is of a similar size to the Apple iPad.

All signs point to this device being the Motorola Stingray but not anything is confirmed now yet. If it does to be sure turn out to be said device, the tablet is said to be Verizon bound and strength support paid TV services, aiming at Hulu and Netflix in the process.
