And the tablets just keep coming in. The latest company to enter the tablet wars, as expected, is none other than HTC. Thanks to a source over at DigiTimes, HTC plans to launch a device that resembles a large version of the HTC Desire, it will be called the “Flyer”. This is reported to be one of three different tablets to be released in the first half by HTC. The device will be released with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and will be upgradeable to 3.0 (Honeycomb) when it becomes available.
The source also noted that HTC will launch the device on a Telecom carrier hoping to beat out sales with RIM’s Playbook in March and Moto’s Xoom in April. The device, we are told, will be launched in other markets some time during the second half of the year, with the other two tablets expected to launch in June with Honeycomb pre-installed. Specs and screen size are still unknown at this time, but we expect that they’ll be trickling in soon. So, stay tuned as always folks, because Talk Android will definitely be covering the release info closely. And don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.
