Verizon Wireless Chief Executive Lowell McAdam confirmed today that they were working with Google to build a competitor to the iPad. McAdam, in an interview with the WSJ, said that tablets are part of the “next big wave of opportunities,” and that “work on a tablet is part of a deepening relationship between the largest U.S. wireless carrier  and Google.”  

He added, “We’re looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience.”   Verizon declined to comment on a timeline for release of a Google tablet nor which manufacturer would make it.  

Below is a ChomeOS tablet concept from Google.
