To be or not to be, that is the question that HTC seems to be quagmired in at the moment as far as the company’s Tablet PC plans are concerned. Its a company having too big a presence in the smartphone arena to not to give in to the tablet craze. But then the company had refuted all rumors of it getting sucked in the great tablet race in the past though a recent revelation from company CEO Peter Chou has once again made tablet fans and particularly HTC followers to sit up and take notice.
“[Customers] may want Windows or Android; or they may want big screen or small screen, they may want keyboard or tablet; HTC will let the consumer decide,” is exactly what Peter Chou had said while speaking at Mobile Business Briefing. And to many, this is the clearest sign yet of the company having a proper tablet device in its product pipeline.
Of course a few more words from the company will do a world of good in making the rumors getting closer to reality while what seems a certainty is that a tablet PC from HTC will surely be something to look forward to. Also with the Consumer Electronics Show getting along next month, HTC might have something more concrete to reveal there. More so on the back of an earlier report that had surfaced back in September and had pointed out to HTC actually awaiting the release of the more tablet specific version of Android to proceed with their tablet plans.
