HTC x Google Tablet PC Release Date Postponed Is the HTC Tablet Really Dead?
Google) is going jump on the tablet PC bandwagon and will privately take
the wraps off an Android-running device, for the company's business
partners, during CES 2010. And although rumors had it that a press
release was expected to take place place later on to give us more info
regarding specs and features, today we can finally confirm that the
cellphone giant won't manufacture a tablet and has abandoned plans for one.
According to HTC's sales and marketing director, Anthony Petts, the
company is more interested in focusing their efforts on a new
generation of mobile phones including new offerings running Android;
which is why leaving the tablet project behind, makes more sense now.
But also making sense is the fact that they're venturing into a new
world and that development budgets have downsized as of late, which is
why HTC could be delaying the whole project until the iTablet (Apple's
creation) gets announced — probably next week, and the new Chrome
OS is out, to see if they really have something in there.
So what do you think about a HTC branded tablet PC? Does it have a
chance to hit considering the fact that HTC will play hard ball to come
up with a relatively cheap price for it?
