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.

    Im sure this table will be small (7 inches) too.
    WHEN we can have REAL tablet of 14 inches (8.5 x 11 inches)
    So we can stop to buy magazine at store and read them on tablet.

    I have hopes and confidence that HTC will do better in the tablet market than Samsung did with their Galaxy Tab, which turned out to be slow and unusable in my experience.

    Guess the couple million people who bought one must have been all the Android fanboys/Apple haters who bought one without even trying it first. And they call Apple buyers sheeple.

    it's always better not to jump into the first generation bandwagon. just wait a few more iterations for the company to get it right. by that time, you may realize tablets are not what you need.

    Interesting. I own a NookColor, which is fast and smooth. I can't imagine a Galaxy Tab, which should be more powerful, is slow..
    btw, NookColor rocks.
