Google working on iPad rival

Verizon Wireless is working with Google to create a new tablet computer similar to Apple's iPad.

Lowell McAdam, Verizon Chief Executive, explained to the Wall Street Journal, "What do we think the next big wave of opportunities are? We're working on tablets together, for example. We're looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience."

McAdam would not be drawn on a possible release date for the tablet or who would manufacture it.

The Wall Street Journal added that Google declined to comment on the Verizon tablet, but said that anyone can use the company's mobile software to create phones and other devices.
