Report: Google To Sell Tablet Computers [online.wsj.com]
Google Inc., undaunted by a short-lived attempt to market and sell smartphones on its own, is now trying the approach with tablet computers in a quest to capture market share from Apple Inc.'s iPad.

The Internet search company will sell co-branded tablets directly to consumers through an online store like rivals Apple and Amazon.com Inc., according to people familiar with the matter. The move is an effort to turn around sluggish sales of tablet computers powered by Google's Android software.

After spending 12.5 billion on Motorola, and having the purchase just receive government approval in the U.S. and Europe, this was a natural and expected step.

The article doesn't say where they plan to sell it. I'd like to see it in the schools of poor countries where buying books isn't really an option for many kids. Google has the billions to REALLY make an impact in such situations, will they?
