Motorola's (NYSE:MOT) to Give Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad its First Real Fight?

With virtually no significant competitors for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) concerning its iPad, the soon-to-be-released tablet from Motorola (NYSE:MOT) could be the first such entry in the segment to do so.

Global Equities analyst Trip Chowdhry said he thinks the new tablet from Motorola will run at quicker speeds because of the probability it'll be on the Long Term Evolution wireless network or the Verizon (NYSE:VZ) 4G.

The new tablet will be powered by Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android 3.0.

Chowdhry also said he thinks the tablet will include NVIDIA Corp.'s (NASDAQ:NVDA) Tegra 2 chip, which should be a plus for the company.

He commented, “If you’re looking at Apple’s high-end devices, they all run off of Nvidia parts. I think the accomplishment that Nvidia has in the graphics area could provide a kind of crispness associated with the best user experiences."

Motorola was trading at $9.02, up $0.06, or 0.61 percent, as of 12:50 PM EST. Apple was at $325.87, gaining $0.40, or 0.12 percent.
