Tim Bucher, a former executive at Apple, has a new stealth hardware startup that could have an Android tablet in the works among other projects.
The Cupertino-based Black Pearl Systems has been assembling a killer team that is out to “create a category-defining product to tackle a problem that faces billions of technology users,” the company says in its job postings.
One of its first hardware products will likely be an Android tablet. GigaOM reports seeing photos of a tablet that looks similar to the phased-out Sony Tablet S, complete with the slanted look that made the S a great coffee table product – which is where Black Pearl wants its hardware product to sit.
The company may also be planning a companion device that matches the tablet in colors, and is in all likelihood going to be used to stream content wirelessly to your TV.
