HTC is prepping another Android slate with larger dimensions and the tablet-optimised Honeycomb iteration out of the box, it has emerged.
The existence of another iPad challenger from the house of HTC emerged in a product roadmap unearthed by everyone’s favourite Palm fanboys over at Precentral.
Back in February HTC showcased its first-ever Android tablet at the Mobile World Congress in the form of the Flyer. However, unlike the Flyer this hitherto unheard-of slate will pack a larger ten-inch screen – up from the seven-inch effort on the Flyer.
The roadmap, which doesn’t list a price for the tablet, also reveals it will ship with Honeycomb on board, making it a much more attractive proposition from launch. The Flyer, alas, will initially run on Android 2.3 – AKA Gingerbread – which was designed solely for smartphones. But at least it will until an update to the newer OS inevitably appears.
Features that Honeycomb brings to Android slates including tabbed browsing, larger icons that take advantage of tablets’ capacious screens and an all-new and rather natty 3D user interface.
