HTC not making a tablet :(

13Jul10

Well that’s dashed my dreams of a half decent Android tablet.  HTC are not currently working on a tablet

PR Manager Eric Lin had this to say

“We are always looking at it, but, right now, the whole idea is that in order to be successful with a tablet, you need to have something compelling. And not just a compelling form factor.

You’ve seen how, at Computex, there were 80 different Android tablets”, he continued. “So if we just release an Android tablet, then we’re one of 81… Whereas, if we have a compelling feature, a really compelling use, anything like that, then it’ll help us to stand out. It’s going to take a lot of work searching for that”

Looks like if you don’t want to buy into Apple’s iPad you have a lot of waiting to do.

UPDATE: Why not include some more HTC rumours eh?  Lint also have an article suggesting that the HTC Ace might be a GSM equivalent of the monsterous HTC Evo for the UK.  The Evo has been selling incredibly well in the US with it’s 4.3″ screen, snapdragon processor and 4G speeds.  Obviously there are no 4G LTE networks in the UK so expect it to be HSPA most likely.
