Rumour: HTC Moving to Windows 8 Tablets

By Gary Cutlack on at

Rumours coming out of HTC's home country suggest it's about to make a return to the tablet world, although it's said to be moving away from its Android past to embrace the slightly less competitive world of Windows 8 tablets.

According to supply chain gossip reported by Focus Taiwan, HTC is looking to assemble a 10.1" Windows 8 tablet, which would offer a 1920 x 1080 resolution display. Market research company DisplaySearch claims manufacturing of the tablet already began in Q1 of this year, ahead of an official launch announcement some time over the coming months.
