Google Signs with LG

Manufacturers who want to make tablets for the Android Honeycomb are required to sign a separate license agreement with Google. Rumors have it that Google will be embracing LG, and this could lead to a Nexus S tablet.
Manufacturers of tablets running on Android 2.X can’t update the OS to Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Until now Google hasn’t released the source code of the Honeycomb even when there are already Honeycomb tablets in the market, such as the Xoom and the soon to be released HTC Flyer.
If ever LG will release a Nexus tablet in the future, it would be the basis of all other Android tablets. Manufacturers would want to copy the hardware, which was designed to optimize the Honeycomb OS. It is Google’s practice to offer software help with their partner manufacturer and the result could be a LG Nexus tablet that runs smoothly on the Honeycomb.
Google embraces manufacturers so that the final product will be polished and well-made. It would also serve as a training session for the company’s internal staff. Google could use the device to develop new or improve current features of the Android. The manufacturer in turn will gain a huge advantage over its competitors.
