Moto & Verizon Plan TV Tablet

11:15 AM -- A lot is happening in the world of content on mobile devices this week. Some highlights:

  • Motorola and Verizon are partnering to develop a 10-inch Android-based tablet that will allow users to watch television on the go, The Financial Times reports. The device, which FT says is expected to "tie closely" with Verizon's FiOS digital TV service, could launch as soon as this fall.

  • Meanwhile, Samsung has filed for a patent for a tablet device with touchscreens on both the front and back, Unwired View reports.

  • Sharp Corp., Japan's biggest mobile phone maker, is planning to launch a 3D smartphone internationally by the the end of the year, Reuters reports. The phone will have a "3D panel that can be viewed without special glasses," and will also probably feature a 3D-capable camera.

  • Many have been wondering when Apple would launch a cloud-based music service. But it has quietly added music streaming to the latest version of its iDisk software for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, blogger Michael Robertson discovered. "This is not 'iTunes in the cloud' but it is definitely moving the Cupertino company in that direction," Robertson writes.
