HTC to Enter the Tablet Market with Scribe

The tablet market looks all set to bloom this year. With new tablets from Motorola, Notion Ink and Apple coming out with the iPad II, HTC doesn’t want to be left behind. In fact, there were rumors that they were studying the tablet market and that they were coming out with a Chrome OS based tablet in November.

According to Bloomberg, they have filed a trademark under the name “HTC Scribe” calling it a “handheld wireless device, namely a tablet computer.” The patent was filed on the 26th of December with the U.S Patent and Trademark Office.

Patent-ly waiting

The tablet is supposed to be “priced in competition with the iPad” and “could be good or better.” according to Will Stofega, program director with the consulting firm, IDC. It is said to be running on Android Honeycomb and could be given an unveiling at the CES this week or next month at the MWC.

There is still no word on the product specifications, but you never know. They might just end up hogging all the limelight for their tablet.
