Droid Tablet Gets a Name: Stingray
It looks like the Motorola Droid tablet that was seen as part of the Verizon Wireless leak is finally getting a name. Called the Stingray, we believe that the name is a reference or codename for the Droid tablet, which may officially launch under the high-end Droid moniker on Verizon Wireless later this year.
Many believe that Motorola is delaying the launch of the tablet until Google announces Android 3.0 Gingerbread, which is reported to bring better scalability for tablets. Like the Android 2.2 Froyo build before it, Gingerbread should also support Adobe Flash 10.1 in its Webkit-based browser, which will give Motorola’s 10-inch Stingray tablet a near desktop-like browsing experience.
The device is said to also support Verizon’s FiOS and utilize NVIDIA Tegra 2 for processing power, a first for Motorola, which has stuck with Texas Instruments ARM-based solutions in the past.
