Google Tablet to Compete with Apple iPad

Google is working on a tablet of its own, but will it be an iPad-killer? The rivalry between Google and Apple gets hotter every day, and with the introduction of Apple's iAd this week at the iPhone 4 keynote, the two companies look headed to all-out war.

The New York Times has confirmed a Google device is in development, and reports that CEO Eric Schmidt will base his tablet on the Android operating system. The company has already had secret discussions with a few publishers to work on delivering content to the future tablet.

Apple iPad Could Ship With Built-in Camera

Apple May Have to Defend iPad Name

Turns out that Apple is not the first company to use iPad to name one of its products. Apple ran into similar problems after it launched the iPhone in 2007, when Cisco sued for infringement.

Apple and Cisco have settled their disagreement, but what looms on the horizon for the iPad name? Japanese tech company Fujitsu first applied for an iPad trademark in 2003, and currently sells a mobile device under the name.

Adobe: No Flash on Apple iPad

For a brief moment during Steve Job's demo of the Apple iPad we all glimpsed the infamous "missing plug-in" icon on the New York Times website. It seems that Mobile Safari, even on a more formidable device than the iPhone, will continue to lack Flash.

Apple has cited battery life and security issues as reasons why the popular plug-in never made it onto the iPhone. Now Adobe has posted a response to Apple's similar position regarding the iPad.
