T-Mobile plans Google Android tablet PC

Home phone running Google OS also on the way

T-Mobile plans to launch two new devices running on the Google Android platform early next year. The company looks set to introduce a home phone and a tablet computer, both powered by Google's mobile operating system.

Confidential documents cited by the New York Times suggest the home phone will plug into a docking station and also come with another device used to synchronise data while it recharges the battery. The tablet computer will feature a 7in touchscreen and won't have any physical keyboard.

T-Mobile was the first wireless carrier in the world to launch a Google Android phone - the T-Mobile G1. Despite starting off slowly, Google Android has gained user traction and more mobile phone manufacturers have committed to building devices using it. The wireless carrier is expected to launch the T-Mobile G2, its second iteration of the Google phone later on this year.
