Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam confirmed the worst kept secret in the tech industry this week by acknowledging that his company is working with Google to develop a tablet computing device. Also in today’s App Industry Roundup, iPhone app developer Tapulous has no apologies for its new Nirvana Revenge title, and new iPhone 4G prototype pics show off Apple’s A4 chip. 

Verizon, Google “https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/apple-store/id362617294?mt=8″ app_id=”197605” target=”_blank”>Justin Bieber. The new app invites you to play along with 13 classic Nirvana songs and thumb tap through multiple difficulty levels. 

Now all we need is a Tap Tap app for the Meat Puppets.

More 4G iPhone pics revealed 

Move over Gizmodo! New images of Apple’s 4G iPhone are now being outsourced to Vietnamese bloggers. 

If photos published by a Vietnamese website can be believed, it appears that the new iPhone – expected to make its formal debut on June 7 at Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference – will be powered by a variation of Apple’s A4 CPU chip. This is the same technology that runs the iPad. More power and functionality will be needed to support Apple’s new mobile operating system, which will accommodate multi-tasking and the ability to operate more than one app at a time.
