New 10 inch tablet from HTC leaks with unique design
A tweet from the crew at EVLeaks reveals what is said to be a new 10 inch tablet from HTC. The tablet is said to be ready to get introduced at IFA in Berlin and while we have seen some strange tablet designs in the past (the clamshell Sony Tablet P comes to mind along with its brother, the wedge shaped Sony Tablet S), it isn't necessarily the form factor per se that makes us do a double take.

First of all, three of the tablet's sides have no bezel. The fourth side more than makes up for that by having plenty of bezel space. This gives you plenty of grip room along the bottom, which would be fine except that the camera lens is placed smack dab in that new country called Bezelia which could lead to many pictures where your thumb becomes an unwelcome photographic subject. Meanwhile, we don't have a name yet for this device which is sure to attract attention of one kind or another at IFA.

Check out the pictures below, and then check out the comments box so you can let us know what you think of this different design from the Taiwan based manufacturer.

Different design.

I don't like it, but praise to HTC for thinking out of the box. I think Fujitsu does it best.

I'm not sure if you can say different design. It looks a lot like Mac desktop... which I'm not a fan of. I think they are pushing to put the One X/S's design in everything a little too far.

iMac comes to the mind, however I bet Apple won;t sue this unless this becomes a threat to them

Doesn't work like that, the iMac is in an entirely different area for sales. It is why Apple iPhones look exactly like flat screen TVs but they have patents on design.

Awwww yeah. I also had to think about an iMac instantly, but we can't disagree on it being beautiful, can we?

Apple may be serving you with a lawsuit for leaking one of their new iTV designs.... :-) It looks very much like a small-scale TV that would sit on a dresser or lamp stand in a bedroom.

Same. I like how HTC is trying to design a different looking tablet, but it did look like the imac monitor a lot when I first glanced at it. Eh.

Htc's biggest comeback! But it has to have better and more convincing specs than the one on the iPad and note 10.1 for it to be competitive...

And guys, I was watching TV this morning, and i realized my LG TV is shaped with the same goofy but at the bottom, so probably the only reason iMac comes to mind is the whiteness of it. Still dig it. Gorgeous design.

And then Apple said: "People buy HTC (no-name -yet) device thinking they are buying iMac."...... :P

i doubt this Tablet's legitimacy...

This is... Interesting. It looks like an iMac, but eh, people will definitely know the difference. If this is real, I wonder about the specs... Nice design though, looks like the front and back cameras are on the bottom of it, which is odd.

one thing i know is that there will be no removable battery and no sd card :)
