In the past too there had been talks about HTC planning to launch new range of tablets but there had been nothing substantial to report. Things are looking a bit different this time as a lot of handy details about these tablets have been leaked.
One of the tablets is expected to be HTC Flyer successor and will have a 7-inch screen and will run on Android Jelly Bean topped by HTC's Sense. This tablet will support the Scribe digital pen. The other speculated specs include 1280X768-pixel display, a Snapdragon S4 processor, a 3-megapixel rear camera and 1-megapixel front camera.
The other tablet is rumoured to be a 10-inch tablet powered by a Tegra 3 processor. This is the same tablet that had leaked online just a few days back. Other specifications aren't clear, except for the fact it will come with 1GB RAM and will sport an unusual design.
Given that 10-inch tablet will be competing head-on with the newly launched Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (aka Samsung Galaxy Note 800) and Apple iPad, HTC will have to make sure that it packs in a great user experience. The other major make or break factor for this tablet is going to be its pricing.
As far as the 7-inch tablet is concerned, it will compete against Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus 7, which means HTC will find it even more difficult to get a footing in this market. It will have to offer something really exciting and priced at about $199, if it hopes not to repeat its past mistakes.
On a separate note, it is also being speculated that HTC will be taking the wraps off its Windows Phone 8 smartphones at this event.
