Motorola has posted a new video online that teases a tablet introduction at CES 2011 while taking shots at the iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab. The video, entitled “Tablet Evolution” and reposted by Laptop Magazine, is a CG walk through a corridor of tablets, ranging from an Egyptian Hieroglyphic tablet to the Rosetta Stone, with a somewhat tongue-in-cheek description for each. When the video swings to the iPad, the description says “It’s like a giant iPhone, but… it’s like a giant iPhone,” before swinging to show the Samsung Galaxy tab, which it describes as “Android OS, but Android OS… for a phone.” The video ends with a shot of an upcoming tablet from Motorola shrouded atop a pedestal, and then a brief segment of a bee flying around the Motorola logo — a likely indication that the tablet will run “Honeycomb,” Google’s upcoming, tablet-optimized version of Android.
