Customers seem to have given the thumbs down to a lot of Windows 8-powered tablets, and that was indeed reflected in the low sales.
However, such a scenario hasn’t stopped HTC from manufacturing two new tablets based on Windows Blue, a revised version of Windows 8.
It may be noted that the Taiwanese mobile phone maker had some time ago introduced its Android tablet HTC Flyer, but the device did not have much success as was expected.
Folks at Phonearena , have managed to get some info on HTC’s plans and they have found that the company is all set to roll out two Windows Blue tablets later this year.
These tablets, codenamed R7 and R12, will feature a 7-inch and a 12-inch screen respectively.
The HTC R7 is said to be one of the smallest Windows Blue devices that can compete with Apple’s iPad Mini and the Google Nexus 7. This baby will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz processor and will have 2GB of RAM.
The R7 is supposed to have a full HD resolution along with a 13-megapixel camera and 16GB of built-in memory. This tablet will also support HDMI, WiFi, 4G LTE/HSPA+, Bluetooth, DLNA and GPS.
On the other hand, the HTC R12 will sport a Retina display with a pixel resolution of 2,048 x 1,536.
For now, the full specifications for the tablets are not available. But sources suggest that both the HTC R7 and the HTC R12 tablets will be launched in October, which would match with Microsoft’s plans to launch Windows Blue at the end of the year.
