Bloomberg has reported that HTC plans to manufacture Windows RT tablets, after being excluded from the first batch of Windows tablets earlier this year.
People ‘familiar with the matter’ told Bloomberg that HTC is working on a 12-inch device as well as a smaller 7-inch one.
If the rumours are true, HTC’s 7-inch tablet will be the first of that size to feature Windows RT, and could provide Microsoft with a direct competitor to Apple’s iPad mini, as well as Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7.
Bloomberg’s sources did not state any specific date for the tablet launches, but it is expected that HTC could unveil them around February – when a large number of new launches take place at the Mobile World Congress event.
