HTC, maker of amazing Android phones, is reportedly working on an Android Tablet, which we're going to assume is going to be just as amazing. The details on the tablet device are unclear; HTC rep Quinton Leigh simply revealed that an Android "tablet" -- it might not be the traditional tablet shape -- is in the works. This is definitely exciting because even though Android Tablets have been announced before, none of them came from a company that puts making great devices first, everything else second.

Leigh also stated that Android mobile phones will soon pack 1080p video and 5.1 surround sound. We're not sure how soon (or realistically) that'll come to be, but given that HTC delivers top notch hardware (see: Evo), it's certainly within the realm of possibility. The argument of whether we need 1080p video and 5.1 surround sound on a mobile device is a completely different matter.

So yes, HTC is once again pushing the envelope of innovation. What's new? [phonereport.info]
