Samsung Electronics recently announced that it plans on introducing Android tablets in Q3, as we’ve learned from one of Reuters’ tweets. The new product will be an iPad rival and fit in with the direction taken by the rest of major tech companies, also preparing slates for launch. Samsung’s device will feature a 7 inch display, making the unit smaller than the 9.7 inch iPad.

No other details were released and we learn that LG is also planning to launch an Android slate, but in Q4. Microsoft also wants to be in the game, introducing tablets based on Windows, while cooperating with Acer, Toshiba and other major brands.
