HTC tablet to run on Tegra 2?
There are new rumors around the upcoming HTC’s Android-powered tablet, but this time there are some technical details on the cloud. Until now, HTC has manufactured all of its devices but the rumors say that the tablet will be manufactured by Pegratron. However, both companies remain silent.
It is said that the HTC tablet will be released in the first quarter of the next year. Probably HTC and Motorola are waiting for Google to finish Android 3.0 Gingerbread before releasing their tablets. The rumored technical details are multi-touch display running at resolution of 1280×720 pixels, 32GB SSD (pretty good amount of memory for your music, video, pictures and applications), 2GB memory and of course WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS support. It’s still a mystery whether the HTC tablet will support 3G connectivity and phone calls support, but we are all pretty sure HTC will put all their efforts in making this tablet a real diamond. The rumors also say that the expected price of the device is about $790 but it’s too early yet for price suggestions.
We’ve already seen the capabilities of the NVidia’s Tegra 2 platform in several tablets. Adopting it in more and more devices, making the hardware even more powerful of those in iPhone and iPad and adding to the increasing interest of the largest game-development companies (id software, EA games, Epic Games and so on) would definitely make Android the leading mobile gaming platform.
