This time at the CES 2011, a series of companies announced and some even introduced a range of innovative and inspiring smartphones, tablets, 3D TV systems, gaming devices, etc. Although many players like Motorola, LG, HP, Sony, Apple and others came up with interesting tablets, HTC did not make any announcements of their range of tablets. Now, there are market news leaks announcing the probable entry of HTC in the tablet market, to be launched at the MWC, named the HTC Flyer. Although, late 2010 saw HTC registering HTC Scribe, which could refer to tablets, there is no news of the same yet to be launched. HTC was originally founded as an original design manufacturer and as a contract manufacturer for various ultra-mobile PCs. Their foray into the field of smartphones, tablets etc. has been really commendable.
HTC has an impressive record of achievements in the smartphone arena. HTC was the manufacturer of Nexus One, an innovative smartphone designed and branded by Google. HTC has a range of phones, A series Android phone, S Series Windows Mobile phones, T series Windows Mobile with touchscreen, P series PDA phones, X series mobile computer and a wide spectrum of devices. HTC’s mastery over the Windows platform seems to be slowly waning out to in favor of the Android platform, with their wide range and achievement in a number of Android devices, notwithstanding the fact that HTC would not give up the Windows platform.
HTC also has an impressive user interface called the HTC Sense, which is based on their earlier developments called Touch Flo and Touch Flo 3D user interfaces. After the CES 2011 the next major event is the Mobile World Congress, which is also one of the major meeting places for mobile technology, cell phone, smartphones, tablet market leaders, and manufacturers. They network to collaborate and display their strengths and also participate in conferences, in line with the mobile world technologies.
The buzz in the market, is that the HTC Flyer which would probably be out before the HTC Scribe would be an Android Gingerbread version, probably a larger version of the HTC Desire and upgradable to the Android 3, which is the Honeycomb OS. There is also news that the HTC might incorporate a dual core processor in the same. We can imagine what the HTC Sense with the Gingerbread or the Honeycomb would do. With so many tablets already announced and the kind of features presented, expectations are high from HTC to perform.
