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
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.

Go check the reviews for corei5 tablets. Battery life is right up there with the rest, and i can live with 500 added grams.
I ain't gonna pay 200$ for a cheap tablet. I can afford more. Surface pro at 900$ is the sweet spot for me, it's gonna replace my laptop and i can just have a beefy Workstation at home.
There are 100000 apps on Windows phone, which i have, and most of them will be ported to Windows 8/RT. However i don't see the point of having ONLY the apps with RT and live with a tegra 3 soc when you can have a PC replacement with a core / Haswell processor in it. Pricier, yes. So is a 64 GB ipad with 4GLTE.
OEM could build a 500$ AMD tablet if they tried. MSI windpad came out last year and i though it was pretty good. It has enough GPU horsepower to have better than a 1300/768 screen. Why no OEM gives a crap about AMD is beyond me.
Oh yeah, i have bluestack android emulator on my PC. No need for an android tablet i can already have the apps and much more. An ipad is actually the only alternative i see for a Windows 8 tablet because of the final fantasy 4 remake they have on it.
