The first-ever HTC Android tablet could be set for launch at this year’s Mobile World Conference (MWC), reports suggest.
According to Digitimes, Taiwan-based makers of components for the Scribe have disclosed that we’ll be able to get up close and personal with the Scribe at the tech expo, which is taking place between February 14-17th.
The site also notes that the slate will come in at a rather compact 7.1-inches and will run Android 3.0, AKA Honeycomb, which is optimised for use with the larger screen that tablets offer, out of the box.
Elsewhere, we can apparently look forward to 2GB of onboard memory, plus support for microSD cards up to 32GB, the usual arry of connectivitiy options (Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth) and a Tegra 2 processor to keep everything ticking over smoothly.
Android slates are also expected this year from Motorola and LG, in the shape of the Motorola Motopad and the LG Optimus Pad respectively. And of course, March or February is also due to mark the unveiling of the second iteration of the device that gave birth to the nascent tablet market, the iPad 2.
