Well, space year 2013AD is right around the corner, and that effectively gives HTC the green light to charge ahead with its Windows 8 RT tablet plans. Word on the street tells us to prep for two such devices.
It’s none other than Bloomberg dishing the dirt on HTC’s Windows 8 RT goodies, crediting “a person familiar with the company’s plans”.
Said person specifically promises a “12in device” and a “7-inch version that can also make phone calls”. Oddly enough, just a couple of days ago, Martin suggested that being "first in line to release a 7in Windows RT tablet" might be an idea for Nokia.
Both of HTC’s Windows 8 RT tablets will reportedly be powered by Qualcomm processors. HTC specifically chose not to go for full-fat Intel-fuelled Windows 8 tablets on account of price, estimating that they’d cost “around $1,000”.
We’re not told when to expect HTC’s Windows 8 RT tablets, only that’ll they’ll “debut in 2013” and boldly aim to take on the Amazon Kindle Fire, Google Nexus 7 and iPad mini. Er, and the big iPads.
