Google is close to rolling out an Android tablet computer that would go head-to-head with the heavily-buzzed – and hot-sellingApple iPad. That's the rumor today from Ashlee Vance and Nick Bilton of The New York Times, and although Google is keeping mum, the Times report already has hundreds of technophiles frothing at the mouth.

According to the report, Google CEO Eric Schmidt recently told friends about the tablet device at an LA party. "People with direct knowledge of the project – who did not want to be named because they said they were unauthorized to speak publicly about the device – said the company had been experimenting in 'stealth mode,' with a few publishers to explore delivery of books, magazines and other content on a tablet," Vance and Bilton write.
