Well lets see who knows... They said the same when the rumors said Samsung's Note 3 would have 3GB of RAM.

So let's wait and see. If a smartphone can pack 3GB of RAM, a tablet shouldn't have a problem packing 5GB...

Releasing a 64bit OS with devices having only 1gig of Ram is a gimmick.

Remember everything changes. Today's top-end devices will be tomorrow's mid-range devices & before not too long they become entry-level devices.

The future will be 64bit & then it will become the norm. Today's budget phones have 720p HD screens. That was top end less than 3 years ago.

It has to start somewhere & sometime... It looks like it will be Q4 of '14 to Q1 of '15 when the 64bit is normal among top-end devices.

Why would 5gb a gimmick? If Android Silver is something that Google's way to compete with the Surface Pro which brings more of "desktop" experience to the users. We have no idea what Android Silver is at this point and if the tablet is going to have 5 GBs then there is a reason.

I think 4 GB for the OS, 1 GB for VRAM

Nah. Most people that buy iPads don't care about specs. As long as it works and has that shiny logo behind.

Oh an android tablet at 399 is not even going to sell, without even mentioning that it will had to face new iPads which will just kind of crush this.

Better sexier looking than the ASUS NEXUS TAB ;) and better than their HTC FLYER TABLET.

there is no way this thing will come with 5 gig ram. I'm calling BS. Like we have sen in the market once one company pushes the next level everyone tries to equalize and match it. When the Note 3 hit 3 gigs ram companies still went with 2 on a lot of flagship phones. I cant possibly see a 2-3 gig jump. plus since KK it isnt needed. but yes more is always better. Is the K1 chip 64 bit? if not then there is really no point other then marketing some BS

I doubt it will have 5 gig of memory. 2 Most likely..3 maybe.

3gig is the minimum for a flagship phone. The Note 3 set that bar last year.

As it has tegra k1 which is 64bit it should have at least 4gb ram. So if its 5gb that's a killer tablet .

Sucks that HTC doesn't back AMOLED screens. This will have S-LCD like the M7 and M8.
