HTC reportedly will launch a tablet PC using Nvidia’s Tegra 2 platform and Google’s Android operating system. The device will feature a multi-touch panel with a resolution of 1280×720, a 32GB solid state drive (SSD), 2GB of memory and several functions such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. With support from Nvidia’s platform, the device’s multimedia performance is expected to be stronger than that of iPad. The device will also feature software support such as Chrome Web apps and Android Market from Google.
Along with typical Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi, the tablet was presumed to have 3G and would carry a relatively high starting price. Estimates of its price put it at $790, or more expensive than the lower-spec but otherwise comparable $729, 32GB iPad with 3G.
Taiwan’s Pegatron would be the manufacturer, but the decision if final could cost it valuable Apple sales. The former ASUS manufacturing arm has reportedly been tapped for CDMA iPhones, but it may lose some of these or other orders if HTC goes through. It’s unclear if Apple would go this route, as it regularly has to use suppliers that make directly competing products.

With the addition of HTC’s tablet PC, Pegatron’s capacity is expected to rise quickly and achieve the company’s previous forecast of seeing a significant growth in utilization.However, Apple is expected to put pressure to Pegatron by shifting its orders away as HTC is believed to be the strongest competitor of Apple’s iPad, the sources noted.
