Google Tablet - GPad?

Reposted with permission from TechnologyNomad.com

Most of us have seen the prototype Motorola tablet with the Honeycomb version of Android (3.0?) that Google's Andy Rubin showed earlier this month (available without ads via Youtube after the jump/below) --Now Motorola has put out there a teaser video (also after the jump/below) of the tablet at CES next month. The Youtube teaser video documents the evolution of tablets since the B.C. era. It takes some cheap shots at both the ultimate competition and the friendly competition.

Personally, I'm surprised that HTC wasn't the one to come out to market with the 1st Google tablet. Nothing against Motorola, but HTC Android phones are a lot sleeker in hardware and software. Consequently, I expect the same in a tablet. Which may mean that I wait it out a tad longer than next month's CES announcement --For the price drop, the kinks to be worked out and for HTC's version.

Still, the hardware specs seem in par with what I would expect a Google tablet (GPad?) to be. One can only hope the rest is inline with such performance. Unfortunately, I was not able to glean a USB port or a camera in the device. Did anyone else?

Here's the original showing of it:
