The initiative is believed to be part of Verizon's efforts to catch up with iPad and Amazon Kindle e-reader host AT&T in business from devices that connect to wireless networks.
Verizon Wireless and Google declined to discuss details on the manufacture or release of the tablet device mentioned by McAdam.
A Google spokesman said anyone can use the firm's Android mobile software to create phones and other devices.
Devices such as tablet computers, netbooks and e-readers are a fast-growing business for wireless carriers as demand grows for mobile devices that can connect to the internet and run applications.
According to McAdam, Verizon plans to have devices ready by the start of 2011 to run on its new high-speed network to be available in up to 30 cities by the end of 2010.
