Does Motorola + Verizon + Android = iPad Competitor?
The Financial Times is reporting today that Motorola has partnered with Verizon to develop an Android-based tablet that will allow users to watch TV on it via Veriozon's FiOS pay service. Motorola is already manufacturing the TV set-top boxes for FiOS.

Other advantages over the iPad include native Flash support (the iPad went with HTML 5 support instead), and support for Verizon's hotspot feature, which allows users to convert the tablet into a portable hotspot that other users can connect to the Internet through.
The tablet, which will have a 10-inch screen, is rumored to be launching as soon as this fall in the US. Now if we can just get some spy shots...
