HTC executive hints at high-end Android tablets in 2015
HTC has already made it clear that the company is looking to step back into the Android tablet space. Google and HTC worked together to bring the Nexus 9 to market, but HTC is planning to release HTC branded tablets in 2015.
While the Android tablet space has been dominated by mid-range 7-inch device, HTC’s strategy will be to focus on the premium segment. In an interview with CNA, HTC North Asia President Jack Tong dismissed the 7-inch tablet segment, claiming “it’s not a profitable market. There is actually a bit more room for growth and product differentiation in the high-end and mid-tier tablet segments.”
We still don’t have any solid details regarding any future HTC tablets, but a few rumors have speculated that there are at least two devices in the works.
