As yesterday's teaser video implied, it seems that we can expect Motorola's much-anticipated Android tablet at CES. Motorola has launched a small teaser site to generate media buzz about the launch, with a countdown that expires at 4:15 p.m. on January 5th, 2011. You can also sign up to receive e-mail notifications of any news on the announcement.

Motorola's tablet will be sporting a Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip, and will presumably be the first consumer device to run Honeycomb, a version of Android tailored for tablet use. Coupled with Verizon's network, it could set the bar for Android tablets from here on out.

While the countdown makes no mention of a tablet, it's pretty safe to assume that in conjunction with the video, Motorola has made it clear that they want to create a publicity swarm (sorry) around the launch of what they surely hope will be an iPad competitor. Bees.

    I'm REALLY hoping that Motorola has learned the lesson of Samsung with regard to making a wifi-only version available. The vast majority of would-be tablet buyers want nothing to do with a data subscription, so given that I'd be incredibly disappointed if a wifi-only option wasn't available with this upcoming Honeycomb device.

      Yea I totally agree with you. I'm looking to buy an android tablet with wifi only.

    I don't know... it does have Verizon branding.

      Where did it show Verizon branding? Do you mean the red M logo? That's Motorola's new logo actually.

      But yeah they probably won't offer a wi-fi version anyway.

    Please Moto, don't make the fault of a closed bootloader !!! It would be a shame... but I don't expect Moto to learn on this topic !
