HTC to release tablet in November

Written by Nick Farell

Black Friday release
HTC is making a tablet computer for Google, and it could hit by Black Friday this November. Word on the street is that the  HTC tablet will run Chrome OS rather than Android and it will be "heavily subsidized" by Verizon, and "substantially cheaper" than the iPad.

According to Download Squad the Google tablet will be "based on Nvidia's Tegra 2 platform and sport a 1280x720 multitouch display, 2GB of RAM, minimum 32GB SSD, WiFi/Bluetooth/LTE connectivity, GPS, webcam, and possibly expandable storage via a multi-card reader. In short it is a serious computer with a far bit of punch.

It will not be the only tablet on the block. We are expecting to see the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which is expected to be unveiled at the IFA 2010 consumer electronics show in Berlin. The Galaxy Tab will likely ship with Google's Android 2.2. operating system, and a snappy 1.2GHz A8 processor.

If they can get these beasts to market fast enough then Apple's iPad is going to look decidedly dated.
