Speculation on three HTC tablets has been in the air for quite some time and the situation seems to be clarifying a little with HTC filing to trademark the name HTC Sensation in Europe on January 19. The list of services and products associated with the trademark include user interface (UI) software and a portable wireless device.
Although a trademark filing falls short of being the definitive truth about a future product, it does give speculation some direction after all. The name Sensation is also interesting since HTC Sense is the name of the UI on HTC Android smartphones. HTC’s Sense UI has contributed a great deal to the Android ecosystem. Even the simple task of copying and pasting text is simpler on HTC’s Sense compared to other Android devices.
HTC’s new tablet is expected to be called Flyer and is likely to be announced at Mobile World Congress 2011 in February. Just the way GalaxyTab is like a large Galaxy S, the new HTC tablet is also likely to be a bigger version of HTC Desire.
