Users will be able to upgrade the device to Android version 3.0, or Honeycomb, which is optimized for tablets, the report said, adding that HTC plans to release more Honeycomb tablets in June."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1295710359.usr309.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>As the maker of some of major flagship Android phones like the Nexus One, Evo 4G, and Droid Incredible it was surprising to me that HTC didn't seem interested in making a tablet.&nbsp; Now it's clear they're very serious about tablets and perhaps wisely taking their time to release some well refined tablets.&nbsp; I know there are many HTC fans out there who will be excited to see what they come up with.&nbsp; Were you planning to buy a Xoom or other tablet before this announcement?&nbsp; Will this announcement make you wait to see what HTC has up their sleeve?</p>

I know I love my Droid Incredible, so if HTC is making a tablet, that will go to number 1 on my wishlist.

IMHO, HTC is a complete winner in high quality workmanship, in hardware design, and in software choices (or is the current correct terminology "apps"?).

Oh, yes, I will definitely wait to study HTC's tabs prior to purchasing a tablet. 8)

Workmanship yes, design yes, software... errr...

My HD2 on Android ran rings around my friend's Desire HD, which has a second gen Snapdragon. No joke. Sense is evil and needs to FO if you ask me.
