HTC event on April 12th promises to show us 'what's next'
When it comes to most things (i.e. birthdays, jury summons, flat tires), we hate surprises. But if it has to do with mobile technology, we live for the suspense. An invitation from HTC has extended a very cryptic, or perhaps understated, request: "Join us to see what's next".

The event, scheduled for April 12th in London, will take place at 1:30 PM BST, or 8:30 AM EST. Engadget has keenly pointed out that the event takes place at the same time as the Microsoft MIX 2011 developer meeting is taking place. But it's doubtful that there's any correlation.

We admit that the background image HTC chose might merely be a captivating image they found to pique our interest, but we just love to speculate: Perhaps the bulging water/screen surface is indicative of the EVO 3D's European launch? It could also be for the HTC Pyramid. Would anyone care to venture a guess as to the 'what's next'?

ok seriously, i never quite understand why in PA, ppl get thumbed down for no apparent reason? I am excited just as much as the guy above me anyways, my guess is a 10" tab. And with competition hotting up with ipad2 and galaxy tabs which all look fantastic, I can only just barely wait for Apr 12th

Yea ayephoner, that was my initial guess too. The only thing that makes me hesitate about that guess is that I haven't seen much indication anywhere else that manufacturers are ready to incorporate that kind of technology yet.

What we need for Europe is HTC to announce EVO 3G over here, with all features fit into MSM8660 Snapdragon enabled (True World Phone up to HSPA+) and the optional back with KickStand fit as standard. And brig that FAST before I buy competitor Motorola Atrix 4G.... Then we don't need the much lower speced HTC Pyramid missing half of EVO 3G key features.

Engadget has keenly pointed out that the event takes place at the same time as the Microsoft MIX 2011 developer meeting is taking place. But it's doubtful that there's any correlation. HTC announce new phones in London a few hours before the US wakes up and Microsoft talks up new platform features in Las Vegas. Seems like a very good chance.
