Motorola has launched a viral market campaign to whip up advance interest in its forthcoming tablet device, expected to be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January
It has posted a humorous video on YouTube that takes a tour through a museum, depicting 'Tablet Evolution' from the stone age to the iPad and Samsung Galaxy S and culminating in a shrouded exhibit of the yet to be launched Motorola tablet.
Each tablet is accompanied by an assessment: the iPad is dismissed as being "it's like a giant iPhone'¦.But it's like a giant iPhone," and the Galaxy Tab rather as "Android OS, but Android OS'¦for a phone.
A flying honey bee around the Motorola logo confirms speculation that the Motorola tablet will be based on the forthcoming Android 3.0 OS, dubbed 'Honeycomb' and said the designed primarily for tablets. Google's Andy Rubin was reported to have fronted an event earlier this month with a prototype of the new device in his hand.
