HTC Windows RT tablets rumored for Q3 2013
Back in October we reported that HTC was
leaving the U.S. tablet market
after getting clobbered by major players like major players like Apple and Amazon. The smartphone maker hadn't had much in the way of success with its seven-inch Flyer or its Android-based 10.1-inch Jetstream tablets.
However, a report has surfaced which claims that HTC is coming back to the US tablet market. HTC is reportedly planning to make tablets running the Windows RT operating system. According to the sources, HTC is working on 12-inch and a seven-inch tablet (which can also make phone calls).
If this rumor turns out to be true, the move would give Microsoft another ally in the battle against iOS and Android on the tablet market. So far, Microsoft Windows tablets haven't been the success that Microsoft hoped for. Sales of the Surface RT tablet have been

I agree. At one point Android was crap too and look at how good it is now.
I think Win 8/RT for tablets is a good UI in general, although I'm not sold on having a desktop for Win RT and I'm not sure how well any desktop would work on a 7" tablet.
Putting that aside, Microsoft really needs to step on the accelerator for apps to get up to speed. It's a great opportunity for new developers to get into a new ecosystem early on. iOS and Android have so many entrenched apps now that it's much more difficult to gain traction for a new app in those environments.
