HTC Posts Picture of Hidden Device(s) Before Tomorrow’s Event, Could be Anything (Update)

Screen Shot 2013-02-18 at 4.18.45 PM

It’s no secret that HTC is having an event tomorrow to announce what we are pretty sure will be the HTC One. They haven’t been short on teasing their new device, whatever it is, and today on the eve of the event, HTC posted this picture to their Instagram account. Whatever could it be?

Upon examining the photo closer than it probably should be, one of those cloths seems to be covering up something larger than the other ones. While it’s most likely two phones under one cloth, could HTC pull a fast one and announce a tablet or something crazy tomorrow? More than likely that isn’t the case, given HTC’s recent stance on Android tablets.

Update: Well, this is scary. Ubuntu now has a countdown on their site that is tick tocking right up to HTC’s press event. Not only is it a countdown, but they say that it’s, “tablet time.” Could that be a freakin’ HTC Ubuntu tablet under that cloth? Lord help us.

We’ll be at the event tomorrow giving you updates as they happen.

    Just what we need….a tablet that won’t ever get OS updates like their phones….

  • Any chance it could be a updated version of this tablet that was leaked a while back? http://www.droid-life.com/2012/08/28/htcs-newest-tablet-appears-in-series-of-pictures-its-an-interesting-take-on-a-slate/

    Can’t wait for the next post of a maintaince guy sweeping the floor 30ft away from the unveil site. Enough….

    I kinda hate when they hype things up this much. It can only go downwards from there.

  • Spoken Word™

    The HTC/Ubuntu countdowns have absolutely nothing to do with each other. I’d bet my nuts on that!

      You have yourself a deal!

      • Lets make a Deal! lol 😀

        • Tim242

          Absolutely! Sometimes you feel like a but, sometimes you don’t. *where’s my almond joy?

            I want to get in on this too!

      • 😛

  • Looking forward to HTC’s conference tomm. Hope they market this(these) well. HTC devices are always good, but the lack of marketing brings them down

  • Austin Warren

    They are so ashamed of it that they can’t even show it off.

    • Kevin McDole

      As an HTC die hard, I found this hilarous.

        I am not a fan of HTC but I do see what could be an HTC Tablet 7-8″ and that looks very intriguing, I hope they can wow people like myself that have been let down by HTC in the past. It’s people who don’t care about HTC devices that they need to grab the attention of.

  • RedPandaAlex

    It actually kind of looks like a 7-inch and a 10-inch tablet

  • “Could be anything”? That seems like a bit of a stretch 🙂 I could list quite a few things that it’s DEFINITELY not 😉 Haha…but I knew what you meant 🙂

  • Justin Winker

    … Maybe a Windows 8 RT tablet? Don’t think it’s likely, but it’s a possibility since they aren’t very interested in Android tablets.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I’m still blown away by the fact that there is no VIDEO leak of this device running yet… HTC has done a pretty good job.

    • Austin Warren

      That’s the only thing they are good at.

    • I think there taking a page from Samsung’s playbook and using a “mule” case design that looks like the HTC 8X so they don’t reveal the final design. Samsung did the same thing last year for the Galaxy S3

      • TylerChappell

        All that matters is that both Samsung and HTC do a hell of a lot better job than Apple, lmao
