HTC to Launch Tablet in March; 2 More in June

Digitimes is reporting that HTC will launch its 'Flyer' tablet in March. The first of three planned tablets for 2011, the Flyer is said to look like an enlarged HTC Desire and will run Gingerbread, aka Android 2.3, when it first launches. Users will reportedly be able to upgrade to Android 3.0/Honeycomb, the version of Android specifically developed for tablets, once it becomes available.

The company is expected to launch two more tablets in June (these will run Honeycomb from launch), but is said to be eager to beat the Motorola Xoom and the RIM PlayBook to the market with the launch of the Flyer. Both the Xoon and the PlayBook are expected sometime in April.
