Android TV Tablet from Motorola coming to Verizon

Motorola is jumping into the slate tablet business. According to the Financial Times:
Motorola is developing a digital tablet device that will allow users to watch television on it, as the US mobile phone group attempts to chip away at a market established by Apple’s popular iPad.

The device, which will have a 10-inch screen and operate on Google’s Android software, could launch as early as this autumn in the US.

It was expected to tie closely to Verizon’s FiOS digital pay-television service, people briefed on the plans said. Motorola also manufactures the TV set-top boxes for the FiOS television service.
So, should we forget about e-books and jump right to TV? I don't have time to watch TV these days. I suppose if I had a mobile tablet, then I could catch up on my TV shows. This device could be great for people who like to watch TV as they're exercising at the gym.
