HTC working on a smartwatch and possibly even a tablet?
It seems like an age since HTC ventured into tablet territory, the last effort was the long forgotten HTC Flyer. Sadly it was the company’s one and only tablet, and HTC stated that they would only return if they could develop a tablet that would “shake up the market”.

Fast forward a few years and that time may well be approaching. HTC co-founder Cher Wang has told reporters that..

When the tablet comes out it will be something nice and disruptive

Disruptive sounds quite interesting, and the comment looks set to start the rumour mill spinning wildly. Many of us have wanted to see another tablet from the company for some time.

HTC CEO Peter Chou has also revealed that the firm previously worked with Microsoft on a wristwatch and he’s not overly impressed with the new crop of smartwatches, calling them nothing more than a “gimmick”. He’s also pointed to a possible HTC Smartwatch, which will, “meet a need, otherwise if it’s just a gimmick or concept, it’s not for people’s day-to-day lives. That is an opportunity for us”.

We’ll keep an ear to the ground and let you know if we hear more on this.
