Update: HTC Tablet delayed further? Digitimes again reports a delay again, from Q4 2010 to Q2 2010. The last rumor we heard was that it’ll be delayed to Q1 2011, so this rumor, if true, sets the HTC tablet release date back even further.
Update: Digitimes has rumors of its own – ODM Pegatron recently landed orders for HTC’s tablet with some specs revealed – Nvidia Tegra 2, a multi-touch display with a 1280 x 720 resolution (no mention of screen size), 32GB SSD, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. Android with Marketplace support. Estimated price of $790.
Rumors about a tablet from HTC go way back to the start of this year with the most recent one being a possible Google Chrome OS tablet that would be released via Verizon on Black Friday this year. While that rumor was quickly shot down by Engadget here’s the latest one a month later.
HTC plans to launch a tablet in Q1 2011, possibly with Android 3.0 – sounds entirely plausible because many other manufacturers have announced just that. The same source says that RIM, Nokia and Motorola are readying their 7-10 inch tablets – we’ve heard about these tablets from these companies previously – the RIM BlackPad, the Motorola-Verizon tablet and a MeeGo based Nokia tablet.
