It's looking more and more likely that we'll see HTC unveil a tablet in a couple weeks at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Might this be it?
At the top of a sea of posts at Norwegian site amobil.no is one titled "Full specs of HTC Flyer revealed," with the blown up, blurry render you see at right. The "full specs," if true, are pretty unimaginative:
- 7-inch screen at 1024x600
- A Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor
- HDMI and DLNA for media streaming
- 5 MP rear camera with flash, 1.3MP front camera.
- GSM radios with 14.4 HSUPA/5.76HSDPA.
And so on and so forth. Basically a big current phone, only without phone capability. That's in direct contradiction with the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which can make calls outside the United States.
The render might well ending up looking something like what HTC releases -- it's generic enough to be just about anything. But we have to believe that the specs have improved since whenever this supposed leak occurred -- and it's important to note that the "our source got a hold of the documents a while back." So maybe this is what's coming, or maybe it's early specs of some tablet that was never put into production.
Anyhoo, we'll find out for ourselves when we trek to Spain next month. [amobil.no] Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
