NPD DisplaySearch: HTC tablet could be coming this year, powered by Windows (Not April Fool's gag)
According to NPD DisplaySearch, HTC is working on a Windows powered tablet that will be released some time later this year. While the report doesn't clarify whether the tablet will be a Windows RT or Windows 8 Pro device, it does say that the tablet will have a 10.1 inch screen that will be produced by LG Display. The screen will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 which will result in a pixel density of 218ppi.

HTC's history as a tablet producer started in February 2011 with the HTC Flyer, a 7 inch slate powered by Android which worked with the optional HTC Scribe stylus. Then 7 months later, out came the HTC Jetstream, a 10.1 inch tablet with support for AT&T's 4G LTE pipeline. The Android powered slate also used HTC Scribe for special features. HTC had a chance to produce the first Windows tablet last year, but Microsoft reportedly wanted a stronger partner. At the time, HTC had just 1% of the global tablet market and was coming off a series of poor selling handsets such as the HTC Rhyme.

Some believe that the new HTC tablet is already being mass produced with contract manufacturer Pegatron said to be assembling the device. HTC and Microsoft have both refused to comment.
