In a recent statement from LG to Reuters, LG has told Reuters it has put back the release date for its LG tablet, as it wants to wait for a more suitable version of the Android OS, according to TechCrunch.
LG’s official statement was, “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.”
We can understand the reasoning. Google itself pointed out Android 2.2 isn’t meant for tablet user interfaces, but it is still a kick in the teeth for those who were hoping for LG’s iPad-equivalent would be released sooner rather than later.
Unless LG decides to take a step back to an older version, which we highly doubt, we expect to see the LG tablet sometime around the release of the allegedly more ‘tablet-friendly’ 2.3 update.
