‘Real’ Android Tablets by Q1 2011?

Digitimes reports HTC will unveil an Android 3.0-based tablet in Q1 2011 and leverage its current relationships with mobile carriers to push the product. We’ve heard that either Android “Gingerbread” (v3.0) or “Honeycomb” (v3.1/2) will premier the first official tablet specific release of Android (with its own tablet apps available in the Market), so this is exciting news if Gingerbread is indeed the release to bring the “real” Android tablet to market. Samsung has already confirmed that a follow up GALAXY Tab loaded with Android 3.0 is just around the corner — and most likely Motorola’s rumored tablet will also be 3.0-based. If everything plays out, I can’t wait to see what the native Android tablet UI features look and feel like.

    Yes, indeed, it will be very interesting to check out this device from HTC. For today Samsung Galaxy Tab and Toshiba Folio are one of the most promising Android based tablets. I wonder if HTC's device will be better than them.
