Dual-boot HTC Babel tablet concept brings Android and Windows together
Even though they may never become real, smartphone and tablet concepts are nice to look at. And that’s why we’re presenting you the HTC Babel, a tablet concept made by @PhoneDesigner.

The HTC Babel is supposed to be a dual-boot tablet, letting you choose between Windows 8 64-bit and Android. Its design has an unmistakable HTC feel, with large speakers on the front, and an aluminum-made case. 

The tablet’s display should be a 10-inch one with a 3:2 aspect ratio and 1920 x 1440, or 2560 x 1920 pixels. A "native digitizer", a rear camera and a front-facing camera are completing the picture.

Of course, we all know that HTC hasn’t been successful at selling tablets in the past. But rumors have it that the company may manufacture a high-end Nexus tablet for Google, which could be released in the second half of the year. Take a look at the Babel concept below, and let us know if you'd want the new, rumored Nexus 10 to resemble it.

The Flyer and Jetstream were such a huge letdown.

Hopely. Great company, but they need to focus on marketing, camera and many minor things. I'm really waiting for M8.

don't if this one will reach the market. last i heard the dual boot asus was also stopped on its tracks. must be some problem the OS owners have not yet resolved. the samsung ativ dual boot was also prevented from reaching the market even though it already made it to public demo.

Wow that is striking, so beautiful. Best tablet design yet. I really hope it will be 2560 x 1920 pixels. I will take this into serious consideration for my next tablet purchase if it comes to be true.

Damn that is a good looking tablet. If this will be the new Nex10, Im ready to burn money! Just make sure the resolution is either better or at least same as the current generation. And please for crying out loud, make the battery bigger and in li-poly!

the blue one showing the android setting page is very nice...like the blue was specially designed for that, while the white one showing the window menu page is very very elegant...in conclusion, well done !
