HTC Quattro image leaks out: a thin, quad-core Tegra 3 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet
We first heard about HTC's future tablet plans three days ago by none other than CEO Peter Chou, but this was enough of a timeframe for the company's upcoming tablet to leak out in pictures. Ladies and gents, the HTC Quattro – a quad-core Tegra 3 tablet, is what's in the making and it ranks among the thinnest and most powerful slates we've seen.

The HTC Quattro features a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1280x768 pixels, all showing off the gorgeous new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The quad-core Tegra 3 chip is the main driving force but it's also helped by 1GB of RAM, all while keeping a slim profile of less than 0.35” (9mm). This puts in iPad 2's league (the Quattro is just a hair thicker) and while it might miss the world's thinnest title, it's still impressively slim.

Interestingly, when it comes to connectivity, the HTC Quattro packs quite a punch with the latest Bluetooth 4.0 bringing impressive low-energy performance, 5GHz Wi-Fi and a full set of sensors. It's also a treat to your ears with tipped Beats Audio support and expected to come with a pair of both speakers and headphones. We're yet to hear whether the Quattro will benefit from 5 gigs of free Dropbox storage or HTC Scribe stylus input, but odds are it will.

It takes a cut in the camera department with only a 2-megapixel snapper on the rear and 1.3-megapixel camera up front, but that doesn't seem like a huge loss for a tablet.

HTC Quattro's release date is set for early 2012, possibly with an official announcement mid-February at MWC, and we're looking forward to hearing more about the price of this 10.1-incher.

Hehe - looks like the new Galaxy Tab 10.1N. Good to see that HTC is also taking precautions against the idiot patent bully which is Apple.

2012 will be the year of quad cores. I wonder if vita will be relevant by then.
