Verizon prepping Android tablet for Google I/O debut?

Another day, another tablet rumor, and this time around it’s talk of Verizon and Google working closely to deliver an Android-based slate in time for Google I/O later this month.  Both Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal claim that more details on the iPad-rival will be released later this week.

Perhaps more interestingly, considering the number of cellular-enabled devices we’re now seeing reach the market, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam has tipped a new wave of data plans that would potentially see the end of “one price plan per device”.  Instead, McAdam expects, new data-centric networks – such as Verizon’s LTE plans for 2011 – will treat plans as a “bucket of megabytes,” presumably that can be shared between multiple devices.

SlashGear will be heading off to Google I/O 2010 to bring you all the details of any new hardware and software, when the show kicks off on May 19th.  Of course, if you’re fed up of waiting for a proper tablet, you can always recreate the experience by holding your regular touchscreen phone very, very close to your face.  Perspective will take care of the rest.
