LG revealed it has dropped its plan to release a tablet based on Google's Android 2.2 "Froyo" operating system. Instead, the company will wait for a future version of Android that is more suitable for tablet computers. LG isn't the first company to delay its Android tablets, over the past weeks we've also heard rumors that other manufacturers will wait for the launch of Android 3.0 as this operating system will offer better support for tablets.
LG Electronics Inc (066570.KS) said on Monday that it had scrapped a plan to launch a tablet computer based on Google Inc's (GOOG.O) Android 2.2 operation system known as "Froyo", a decision that may delay the rollout of its first tablet PC slated for next quarter.
"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," said an LG official.
