Time Warner Cable subscribers to get Android tablets

Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) has a connection with the uber-popular iPad; now number two MSO Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC-WI) will connect with an Android-power phone-tablet combo built by South Korean manufacturer Enspert.

Bobby Cha, Enspert's managing director, said that the company will have the tablet on hand to sell to TWC subscribers by the third quarter of 2011 and that it could launch under Time Warner branding. The device itself will consist of a cordless phone and a seven-inch Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) Android-powered tablet that connects to a residential WiFi network. It's being shown at CES this week, of course.

The goal, when working with a cable operator such as Time Warner Cable, is to enable multi-screen viewing "where you can push pictures, movies and content from a PC to a laptop, to a TV and back to your cell phone," Cha said.
