HTC has confirmed that they will release between 6 and 8 new phones and tablets before the year is out. Unfortunately, the looming eve of Windows Phone 7.1 (Mango) means that these new devices will not be exclusively Android, but HTC did say that our little green friend will be powering the majority of the devices. Let’s take a quick recap of what we know, and what may be in store.
First up we have the all but confirmed HTC Puccini, who popped up in some very official looking photos this week. The Puccini is a 10″ tablet, HTC’s first, running Honeycomb (presumably 3.1 or 3.2). The tablet has been seen hanging around the FCC where it showed off AT&T’s LTE bands. We haven’t heard anything official on AT&T’s LTE network, but if its cleared the FCC, the Puccini can’t be too far off.
Next up we have the HTC Ruby, another definitely Android device. We don’t know too much about this one yet other than that it is destined for T-Mobile. There is a similarity in the camera interface in a leaked photo to that on the MyTouch 4G Slide. Because of this, we are speculating it may be the newest MyTouch phone, but only time will tell.
To top it all off we have the HTC Ignite (a recently leaked Windows Phone) and a slew of new codenames HTC just trademarked. So our count so far is 2 Android devices and 1 WP7. That is a majority all right, but only 3 devices. That means HTC’s cooking up some fancy new Android toys for us that will be here before Christmas.
