HTC gearing up to unveil Android Tablet at CES?
Tablets are becoming the center of attention for this upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. One of the biggest smartphone makers intends to make a splash with two touchscreen tablets – one of them running Android. HTC has become a juggernaut in the mobile world thanks to its high quality handsets – offering a decent mix of platforms to choose from. The Taiwanese based manufacturer has been hard at work for the last 18 months gearing up to unveil this rumored tablet. One of them will be running Android and feature a Qualcomm processor, touchscreen display, and new software from Adobe. Not everyone will be getting a sneak peak at this device at CES – only a select group of HTC customers will be allowed at the private showing. The other tablet expected to roll out will feature Google’s Chrome OS. With CES inching ever so close, we’ll see if HTC can really expand and capture the eyes of consumers with these tablet devices.

Please educate me... when did tablets become "slightly larger then normal" smartphones? I still associate tablet with small/flat laptop?

The line is blurry thanks in part to manufacturers themselves. Previously; tablets were referred to as "Tablet PCs", but in the last few years full sized tablets have pretty much dissapeard from the wild, with very few exceptions. It became the norm to call non-hinged UMPCs (ultra mobile PCs) tablets during that time, hence the confusion.

I wonder if this will be like the HTC Shift or Advantage and still be able to be used as a phone.
