HTC working on a tablet that will stand out amongst the crowd of ‘me-too’ devices

HTC’s CEO, Peter Chou, has said in a media briefing that his company is looking to the tablet market with something that will really stand out.

“Tablet is a market we would like to try to test, to see whether we can make ourselves stand out and prevent a me-too product”

Currently HTC don’t have a single tablet launched in Australia — the Flyer was rumoured to go to Vodafone earlier this year — so it would be nice to see them hit our market with a tablet that kicks all kinds of butt.

This got us thinking, what would HTC have to do to make a tablet that stands out in the current or near-future market? We think it would have to have a unique design, interesting interface (HTC wouldn’t use stock Android 4.0) and be at a competitive price point. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Whilst everyone else here is thinking HTC should do a 10 inch ICS tablet, what about them doing a 5.3 inch ICS phablet, to go head to head against the Samsung Galaxy Note?

  2. Have been a huge fan of HTC for a few years, recently been disappointed with their lack of interest in the Australia market.

  3. 250 gb hard drive like the archos7,usb ports and recharge with the mini usb port like the mobile phones.

  4. Funny that, I just send off an e-mail to HTC Australia this morning asking them about a possible table release in Australia. Haven’t got a reply yet.

    But basically, I would like to see:

    Icecream Sandwich
    Tegra 3
    1.5 GHz dual core processor
    Stylus
    Front camera: 1.3 mega pixels (not too fuss about front camera)
    Back camera: 8 mega pixels
    Battery life: 10 hours
    HDMI Connection
    Decent speakers
    Good grip cover on the back like the Toshiba Thrive or the current Asus Transformer.
    10″ screen (I wouldn’t be surprised if they try something else like 11″ or 12″ screens)
    1080 screen (not fussed about 3D)
    Standard 16 or 32 GB hard drive.

    thats about it at the moment.

  5. I’d happily pay $1000 for a device like that.

    Also 1.5ghz of ram
    wifi a.b.g.n

  6. 10 inch
    Heavy sense
    1080p screen or 720p
    32gb 64gb
    beats integration
    HTC accessories ie docks

    A HTC version of iTunes. Similar to kies but snappier. This is a major problem for Android. Many people like play counts and simple media transfer – like iTunes. Although that’s more a Google problem. Bring offline music management!! WORLDWIDE

    10 + battery life
    12megapixel camera 5megapixel front

    Maybe take an experia design element and have it super thin with thicker handle like edges.

    3d screen?
    Tegra 3

  7. tegra 3, 10 hours plus battery life and a kickstand, 

  8. Make a 8 inch with their styles and some sense goodness and so long as the UI doesn’t lag up or nothing they have a winner.
