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.

Isn't Tegra 2 kind of weak for a tablet?
Ugh, they could of gone with something a lot better (TI).

Actually tegra 2 is "supposedly" able to crunch 1080p (FullHD), and as such is an overkill for a tablet concerning its resolution of 1280x720(HD or 720p)

I think the TI OMAP4 is better than Tegra 2, but whatever, time will tell.

I'm excited but confused at the same time... There are a few good things that a tablet does better than a laptop, but it is very minor and not necessary. I'll have to wait and see if the web browser perform like a champ and let you view the web in all its glory. Plz, don't mention iPad, that thing is so limited when viewing the web it makes me hurl.
