Latest HTC tablet rumors say three are on the way, the first due in March

HTC tablet rumors seem to have been hanging around for ages, with an occassional snippet of information coming to the surface but still no concrete evidence or official confirmation. The latest snippet that has come to our attention following rumors of a device called the HTC Scribe to debut at the Mobile World Congress is that HTC, like a few other Asian companies, is actually working on multiple tablets, or three to be exact, with the line-up to debut within the first half of this year.

The first of these tablets is allegedly called the HTC Flyer, which will spearhead the company's assault on the tablet market by launching around March loaded with Android 2.3 and the ability to upgrade to Android 3.0 Honeycomb as soon as it's available. The other two members of HTC's tablet force will follow up around June and ship with Honeycomb from the get-go. No other details are known apart from one description of the Flyer as being like a large version of the HTC Desire smartphone (shown above).

There are some patterns to be found in the rumors, with these latest release dates roughly matching the Q2 2011 date previously mentioned by an HTC executive last April, and the possibility that the rumored Scribe may be one of the three devices HTC has in the works. Whatever the case may be, something certainly appears to be on the horizon from the Taiwanese giant and with its great track record for smartphones I'm expecting equally impressive devices when it finally reveals its tablet offerings.
