Schmidt says Google tablet coming within six months

Chris Davies for SlashGear:

Google will begin promoting what could be the first official Nexus tablet within the next six months, according to chairman Eric Schmidt, the latest stage in the “brutal competition” between it and Apple. “In the next six months we plan to market a tablet of the highest quality” Schmidt told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sea, while also confirming that Google plans to leverage its voice recognition technology to better challenge Apple’s Siri.

We’ll see if Google has any better luck wading into the fray; so far, Android tablets haven’t had very much impact in the market compared to the iPad.
