LG is reportedly delaying its plans to release an Android tablet.
According to a report by Reuters, the move is due to a decision by LG to skip the current Android 2.2 "Froyo" release and base the tablet on a later version of the platform.
"We plan to introduce a tablet that runs on the most reliable Android version ... We are in talks with Google to decide on the most suitable version for our tablet and that is not Froyo 2.2," an unnamed company source told Reuters.
The company was reported to be planning a fourth quarter release for its tablet. The Reuters story said that a new release date for the tablet has yet to be determined by executives.
When the tablet is released, LG will find itself in an increasingly crowded and competitive tablet space. Apple has enjoyed healthy sales to its iPad tablet, while Toshiba, Dell and Samsung have unveiled tablets of their own.
Most recently, Research In Motion threw its hat into the ring when it revealed the PlayBook tablet. The company is planning to release the device early next year.
