Does HTC have an Ubuntu tablet up its sleeve for tomorrow's event?

Does HTC have an Ubuntu tablet up its sleeve for tomorrow's event?
An image released by HTC in advance of its press event on Tuesday, shows around 12 devices covered by cloth. One of the devices underneath the covering appears to take the shape of a 10 inch tablet. That means that besides the expected introduction of the HTC One, we could see the Taiwan based manufacturer step up to the plate swinging a tablet as well as a top-shelf phone.

Is that a 10 inch tablet or are you just happy to see us?

Is that a 10 inch tablet or are you just happy to see us?

The HTC One is expected to wield a 4.7 inch FHD display, resulting in an industry leading 468ppi pixel density. But there seems to be more going on with this handset as images from HTC have hinted at stereo speakers and an outstanding camera using "Ultrapixels" on the phone.

What about the image of the tablet? Could HTC be planning on revealing an Ubuntu powered tablet? As far fetched as it sounds, the timing would seem to make it possible, if not probable. As we told you on Monday morning, Canonical is expected to introduce the Ubuntu OS optimized for slates, tomorrow. A countdown timer on the site happens to end just when HTC's even is slated (pun intended) to start.

We will be live from the HTC event in New York City tomorrow (Tuesday) which starts at 10am Eastern/7am Pacific. Check in with us early and stay with our coverage the whole day.

I'm SO EXCITED for this show. I hope they make a comeback. Since I left Nokia, I have only used HTC.

I really want them to announce another 3D phone, but I don't think that will ever happen since the EVO 3D didn't sell well. However, I still love mine. I think it was doomed by no marketing. Every time someone sees the 3D pictures on mine they want to know what my phone is, and where they can get it. Most had no clue they made one. :-/

If they do it's a risk worth taking.

Would be interesting. And also an "about time" moment for Canonical and Ubuntu, which has failed over and over again to get into a consumer market.

Hopefully HTC can make their comeback! They make great handset, let down only by poor marketing.
