Despite initial findings that the HTCdidn’t have built-in palm rejection (so you can rest your hand or fingers on the display and write) back at MWC last month, this latest hands on with Sascha and Chippy of CarryPad in a Vodafone meeting shows working Palm Rejection at one point in the video, maybe now working due to a newer software build. Chippy points out that the retail version will also add a SD Card slot at the bottom and sport a unibody chassis, so you won’t see those unsightly white top and bottom panels on the back.
The tablet is still on schedule for an April or May release in Europe and Asia first. We’ve seen the tablet pop up for pre-order for 669 euros with 3G and 499 euros for Wi-Fi only. The key features of the tablet are it’s 7-inch 1024 x 600 display, a single core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, stylus input and Android 2.3. Also remember, there’s no telephony on 3G models.
