HTC is in the fore front when it comes to the design and manufacture of smart phones. The Taiwan based company is the fifth best-selling smart phone vendor in the world. After bringing about revolutionary changes in the smart phone world including the world’s first quad core processor in a phone, HTC is eying the tablet computer market.
To plan ahead of time is a good thing to do especially when you are in close competition with several marketing giants. HTC is definitely doing it and planning for the year 2012. HTC has plans to bring out a completely new feature packed tablet in 2012. The company believes that they can stand out from the other manufacturers and bring out a successful tablet even though it is focusing on smart phones as of now.
HTC has only launched two tablets in the recent past. They are the HTC Jetstream and HTC Flyer. In the meantime, companies like Samsung have been flooding the market with their range of tablets. HTC Flyer was the first one to be launched and it came out in the mobile world congress of 2011.The device featured a very unique stylus that caught the attention of the tech world. HTC Jetstream was the first tablet to run on an android honeycomb platform and had 4G LTE capabilities. The device is a technological marvel but is very expensive.
The company plans to launch a device that has high specs and runs on Ice-cream sandwich android version. This will surely grab attention since HTC is renowned for making the Android look very attractive. Sense user interface in the device will be the icing on the cake. None of the specification, name or features of the device has been announced by HTC.
When we look into the details of the older tablets, we can know where it was flawed. The HTC flyer irrespective of its brand label and features goes a long way back in the line considering the fact that it is a tablet. The battery life was poor and the processor in it was inefficient compared to other tablets out there in the market. The device was very much expensive. The 16 GB version of the device costed as much as the 32 GB version of the ipad 2.The latter is also smaller and compact, so that was the reason the HTC flyer could not produce much competition.
HTC Jetstream came out next and it too could not cause a stir in the market. The device was introduced with a high price tag. Even though it offers 4G LTE technologies, such speeds can be experienced by users who have networks compatible for it. The tablet was heavier and chunkier than what people expected. The pricing was the main flaw of the tablet. But, as of now there is no much information available on the exact price in India.
