Unconfirmed reports claim to reveal the specs of an unannounced tablet soon to be unveiled by HTC. Norwegian enthusiast blog amobil claims to have sources and an internal document that provide details surrounding HTC’s forthcoming “HTC Flyer” tablet. Thought to launch as one of HTC’s first tablet offerings, the device curiously has specs that barely seem competitive following the barrage of tablets we saw introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month. Purported specs include a 7-inch 1024 x 600-pixel display, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3G connectivity, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, DLNA, an HDMI-out port and the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS with HTC Sense. Unless HTC plans on bringing a knife to a gunfight, expect one of two things to happen when the Flyer is finally announced — either these specs are off base, or this device will be on the budget end of several tablets (possibly including the HTC Scribe) announced in succession by the popular Taiwan-based cell phone maker. Along those lines, amobil also notes that HTC is preparing a 10-inch tablet with LTE connectivity to launch in the second half of the year.
