Report: HTC Building Pricey Nvidia Tegra 2 Tablet

If you've been hoping for a HTC tablet, despite the fact that the company says it's not building one, then you might be in luck. Word on the street is Pegatron has just received an Android tablet order from the smartphone manufacturer. The best part? The device will reportedly pack Nvidia's Tegra 2 chipset.

Digtimes cites sources from component makers that say the device will pack Android, Tegra 2, a multi-touch 1280×720 display, 32GB of solid state storage, 2GB of memory and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. No definitive price has been mentioned but Digtimes cites "market watchers" in estimating somewhere around NT$25,000 (US$789.75). The site's source didn't mention any details at all when it came to a release date.

We'll keep you posted on this one, so stay tuned!

    hmm pretty interesting..
  • nevertell
    Sounds more powerful than my last pc. And that is A LOT.

    Maybe even more than is necessary in a tablet.

    Just more Tegra vapor-ware. Move along, theres nothing real here.

    if 790 bucks still better then Ipad 729 + tax ( 32GB + 3G )
  • so... the iPad didn't cut the mustard so now our army is using a tablet supplied by (for all intent and purpose) the Chinese.....
  • dEAne
    yeah I will wait.

    This has got to be expensive. Let's see how low they can keep the costs.

    it came out too fast right after the tegra 1 used in the MS Zune HD. which came out just around 6 months ago
  • back_by_demand
    Maybe expensive, but I just figured if I get a tablet with some kind of data, be it built-in or from a MiFi, my next mobile may as well just be a dumb-phone for voice and text only.

    I'm sure that's the reason the cell networks have got into bed with the tablet people, because they knew this right from the start.
