Google, looking to boost use of its Android operating system, plans to sell its own tablet computers later this year, a news report says.
The search giant, which has normally stuck to producing software when it comes to the smartphone and tablet markets, will make a stronger push by selling tablets itself, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
The move comes as tablets powered by Android have failed to put a dent on the market dominated by Apple's iPad.
Google will sell the tablets through an online store that the tech company has yet to announce. The store is expected to be similar to the ones used by Apple and Amazon, according to the Journal's report.
