Quad-core powered HTC Quattro possibly delayed until March 2012
Just the other day, we filled your head with the HTC Quattro. This is a high-end tablet that is expected to be equipped with a quad-core NVIDIA 3 processor under the hood, a 10.1 inch display with resolution of 1280x768, powered by Ice Cream Sandwich. We already pointed out that at 9mm, the HTC Quattro is just a tad thicker than the Apple iPad 2 and in addition to offering Beats Audio technology, Sense 4.0 is expected to be running on top of Android 4.0.

Originally, the HTC Quatro was set to take its high-end specs and roil the tablet market during this holiday shopping season, giving some competition to the quad-core powered Asus Transformer Prime. While the latter is now open for pre-orders, the HTC Quattro will be forced to play catch up as according to Digitimes, the Quattro will remain sidelined until March at the earliest. While no reason was given for the delay, it appears that during the first half of 2012, HTC is expected to focus on quad-core tablets and smartphones.

The handset side of the quad-core equation is scheduled to be led by the HTC Edge and the HTC Zeta. We've reported on both models and if you want to get a taste of what the first half of 2012 might look like in the high-end smartphone arena, we suggest you go back and look at the specs of each model again.

I wonder what HTC's version of 4.0 will look like. Their UI is so full of features I wonder if you'll even see much of a difference.
