Rumors of an HTC tablet are continue to hit the net, regardless of HTC’s stance on their development of a tablet device. This new tablet is going to be one of the most impressive tablets hardware wise we will see for a while, if released. The mysterious device is said to be housing a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and a capacitive multi-touch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p). All of this coming at a hefty price, around $790.
Other presumed specs include a 32GB SSD, 2 GB of RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. It will run some form of Android with Chrome web-app support as well as access to the Android Market. 3G may be coming but no word has been leaked on which carriers would be providing the service for the powerful tablet.
3G would make sense because it would also open the door to subsidies to take off some of the sting of a nearly $800 device with a 2-year contract. We have already heard word via Taiwan based component makers that HTC may be releasing a tablet in the first quarter of 2011. It’s expected to run Android 3.0 Gingerbread however, with specs this powerful, it may open the door to more complex operating systems.
