After exploring the HTCDev site, location of the almighty unlocking of the HTC bootloaders taking place later this year, a reader over at Android Central showed everyone a few things of interest. Included within the goodies are some screen shots of a Honeycomb tablet, running a version of Sense. It hasn’t been said whether this is just a developer version yet, or if this is exactly what we saw teased to be released on the HTC Puccini. (more…)
The first rumor for the HTC Flyer pegged it as a Gingerbread (Android 2.3) tablet that is upgradeable to Honeycomb and is currently scheduled to see the light of day in March. Last night though, some specs snuck onto the interwebs, leaving us well, a little disappointed. As more information comes out, the Flyer is looking more and more like the next Galaxy Tab rather than a competitor to the Motorola XOOM.
We haven’t heard all that much from HTC in the tablet game, but this new trademark filing for the word “SCRIBE” is a sign that they are ready to take flight. There are a few rumors in the wild that suggest HTC could have multiple tablets in 2011, but other than that, the details have been locked up tight. And how do we know that SCRIBE is even a tablet? Well because the trademark says, “Handheld wireless device, namely, a tablet computer.” Of course, we have no idea if this will be Android, but one would assume so.
HTC has an open house next Thursday at CES and we’re hoping to see this new player in action. Or they could just show off the HTC Thunderbolt since their event follows Verizon’s 4G LTE press gathering. Check out our exclusive pics of the device here.
