HTC's Android powered tablet will come to fruition in Q1 2011?
Hot on the heels of HTC's major handset announcements in London, there are already speculations about the Taiwan-based manufacturer in regards to tablet computing. Some were hoping to hear or see something officially during the recent festivities, but sadly, no mention of it was ever uttered publicly about it.

However, DigiTimes is reporting that the company is moving forward as they intend on getting their feet wet in the tablet business seeing that it's rumored that we will see an HTC Android powered tablet some time during Q1 of 2011. In addition, it's pegged to run Android 3.0 which is looking to make its presence widely known some time around this busy holiday season, and should most likely make its way onto HTC's tablet.

Digitimes reported: “For marketing tablet PCs, HTC will have an advantage thanks to its strong ties with Google and established cooperation with mobile telecom carriers around the world, the sources pointed out, adding that if the performance and quality of the new device is on par with its smartphones, continuous support from these strategic partners is expected.” Based on that, the source mentioned appears to be component manufacturers that might already be in the loop regarding HTC's tablet intentions, but then again, it could be nothing more than general assumptions at this point. Moreover, it's rather difficult to infer whether or not these speculations can be taken to heart especially when they're still weak in tone, but then again, you never know what might come out of it all.

Google is going to probably look for a launch partner for Gingerbread and HTC could very well be it with this tablet. Although froyo didn't have a launch device so I could easily be full of it...
