Hot Tablet Coming? Picture of alleged HTC One slate is spotted
0. phoneArena 09 Sep 2013, 11:32 posted on
We know that HTC has been so enamored with its design for the HTC One that it has made a mini version of the phone, and a phablet sized model is apparently on the way; but a picture reveals what appears to be a tablet-sized version of the HTC One. Hey, if a design is that popular, why not milk it? THe HTC One has been the most successful HTC handset in years from both a critical and sales standpoint...
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

It actually looks really good - kinda like a next-gen iPad mini with its aluminium highlights at the top and bottom, but enhanced with the front stereo sound speakers.

How could PA put this like news. LOL, HTC One BS is dead meat, and Alan must learn to live with that.
"THe HTC One has been the most successful HTC handset in years from both a critical and sales standpoint."
Yeah, "critical" who? The menial iMedia?
What "sales standpoint." ? Alan show us the numbers. :)

This is what I've been waiting for, HTC TABLET!

I think it's a Photoshop. It looks too much like someone took an iPad and pasted the top and bottom on there.

Of course it's photoshopped, why is this even an article?
If that's a full sized tablet, those speaker-holes would be absolutely huge, as would the front-facing camera. Whoever put this together didn't even think to shrink these down?

Zoom IN the picture, you can see a person capturing this pic !
38. Dr.Phil (Posts: 813; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
Yes and your point being...? Someone can take a picture of an iPad and then photoshop the top and bottom onto it to make it look real. They just tried to make it look like someone was actually taking a picture of the device so as to make it seem realistic when it\'s not.

Thats real Tablet, But not HTC made. copied the "ONE" design cues.
29. maherk (Posts: 201; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
True that. Plus look at the front facing camera placement, in the 1st picture the camera is a bit more far from the bezel than it does in the second picture.

They took the top of the HTC One (not the Max) reversed it, eliminated the light sensors, and extended the edges horizontally.
If you look at the picture of the HTC One Max the speaker holes remain the same size as the speaker holes on the One, and there's a LOT more of them due to the larger size. That means there would be WAY more speaker holes on an HTC tablet than are shown in this pic.

The glare in the corner has to be photoshopped, it\'s way too conveniently right on where the Ramos brand logo would be. Also if you edit the photo to clean it little, there are still traces/smudges size and shape fitting to that logo. It has to be the Ramos K1.
40. Commentator (Posts: 2083; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
Good catch. It's hard to see directly, but if you look at that corner at a different angle (I turned my laptop screen up a bit) you can definitely see that some text has been blurred out.

Remember the HTC Jetstream? Probably not since they charged $700 and never provided those unfortunate buyers even 1 software update.

ug the HTC one is so ugly that grill makes it think its all gangsta

Funny considering its won the most design awards of 2013
42. Long1 (banned) (Posts: 399; Member since: 18 May 2013)
The worst tech design EVER. Check iFixit.
By the way how many "design awards of 2013" you said?
44. Commentator (Posts: 2083; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
Because all designs are graded on how easily you can fix something yourself.
Just ask the guys at Ferrari and Lamborghini who design the worst cars in the world because they are so hard to fix.

thats just look terrible , that design looks good on phones but on tablets it looks horrible
6. PapaSmurf (Posts: 5823; Member since: 14 May 2012)
It looks disproportionate. It's more wide than it is in length.
27. Topcat488 (Posts: 974; Member since: 29 Sep 2012)
Yeah and it has absolutely no side bezel!?! FAKE.
43. Long1 (banned) (Posts: 399; Member since: 18 May 2013)
That's the dark glass over the bezels.
But this is photoshop, and Alan F,, knows it very well.
5. chistoefurpuffer (Posts: 139; Member since: 11 Mar 2013)
Ew oh god, that thing is actually quite ugly. Clearly the One design doesn't fit tablet standards.
7. spiderpig2894 (Posts: 366; Member since: 10 Jan 2012)
WTF. No, please! Your HTC One design doesn't fit the tablet design unlike Sony's Omnibalance design and the Samsung's "Designed for Humans" design.

Front facing high end speakers on a tablet sounds awesome
11. Fuego84 (Posts: 244; Member since: 13 May 2012)
The tablet doesn't look that bad maybe it could look a lot better in black.
15. domen151 (Posts: 18; Member since: 13 Sep 2012)
I doubt it\'s real. The front camera hole is way too big.
16. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1616; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
that looks abysmal!!! the one is beautiful that is horrible, not to mention i have no clue why OEMs are putting fixed buttons on tablets now! My nexus 7 with soft keys is the only way to do it...
20. ar2730 (Posts: 39; Member since: 24 May 2012)
I just hope it comes with an stylus for note taking. I love my HTC One and would love to trade in my Samsung Note 10.1 for a HTC One Tab.
23. zig8100 (Posts: 107; Member since: 13 Dec 2012)
I don't think they will go back to a 4:3 ratio over a 16:9. Looks fake.
24. rukkaset (Posts: 7; Member since: 09 Sep 2013)
It\'s probably this:

If this is a real pic I\'d be a little disappointed. They could make it alot better design wise.
30. McLTE (Posts: 612; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
I don't know.. personally I think it looks better than the phone!
36. Tuxedo (Posts: 91; Member since: 19 Mar 2013)
Don't forget the uSD card reader. Thanks

Looks long and lean. Too narrow. Not an attractive device.
