This would be the second major attempt at market penetration of tablets from HTC. Their first attempt was with 7" HTC Flyer with a 1.5 gigahertz processor and Android from 2011, however it did not achieve significant commercial success, and even 10.1" HTC Jetstream, which was only available in the U.S. for AT&T customer's 4G LTE network achieved very poor results.
The new tablet is reportedly already largely produced, and the operating system should be Windows 8 or Windows RT. For now, neither HTC nor Microsoft have no comments on this.
[Ed - The tablet arena is a place that HTC wants to get into very badly. Unfortunately for them they have not been able to release anything that has interested the consumer. There is a chance that this new tablet could end up with a Facebook version of Android on it at some point, but we will have to see what if anything comes from that. We have a feeling that there is more to this product than we are seeing on the surface]
