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 relatively modest and many of the business-focused Windows 8 tablets have yet to ship.

The sources claiming to be familiar with HTC's tablet plans claim both tablets will ship in 2013.

Windows RT is crap.

Based on what? iPad & Android tablets or your desktop/laptop? If you compare it to other tablets on the market I think Windows RT is in a better position for the future even though there are way less applications available for it. It does have Microsoft Office which is something the other tablets don't have.
