What better way to kick off your day than with a brand new tablet rumor from arguably one of the most prolific rumor mongers out there – Digitimes? The Taiwanese site is now reporting that
HTC plans to launch an Android-based tablet in the first quarter of 2011.
HTC's tablet is likely to run Android 3.0 (aka Gingerbread), according to a typically terse Digitimes report, citing Taiwan-based component makers. Of course, this is not the first time HTC has featured in a tablet rumor. As per a separate rumor, the company is supposed to launch a Chrome OS-based tablet on Black Friday, November 26.
“For marketing tablet PCs, HTC will have an advantage thanks to its strong ties with Google and established cooperation with mobile telecom carriers around the world, the sources pointed out, adding that if the performance and quality of the new device is on par with its smartphones, continuous support from these strategic partners is expected,” reads the report.
