The launch of a tablet Android by HTC is still speculation, but this does not prevent the emergence of new rumors about its market window.
The rumor of the existence of a tablet designed by HTC Android is not new and there is little doubt that the manufacturer is very interested in this segment and will eventually offer its own in declination. Early rumors suggested a launch by the end of 2010 but like many other manufacturers, the timing of the arrival of Android 3.0 Gingerbread impose more likely a marketing in early 2011. New information from Taiwan, and apparently from the notes of an analyst from JP Morgan suggests that the launch finally intervene until the second quarter of 2011.
The reason is that Google has preferred Motorola for the launch of Android 3.0 Gingerbread, as he had done for Android 2.0 with the launch of the Motorola Droid end of 2009, which was the first terminal benefit.
Similarly, the priority for the launch of Android 3.5 Honeycomb was given by Google to LG Electronics 4.0 … waiting for Android Ice Cream, if you believe the latest rumors. These exclusive launch of HTC therefore lead to delay marketing its product. (more…)
