HTC has taken their time to reenter the tablet market (not counting the Nexus 9, of course), but recent murmurings have suggested the company would look to test the waters of the mid-range sector of the still-iffy product category. And now we have our first indication that those rumors were true.
A mid-range 7-inch HTC tablet has been spotted at online import/export database Zauba. The database surprisingly lists a few detailed specs, such as the fact that it has 16GB of internal storage and sports a 1.2GHz quad-core chipset. It will also support dual-SIM cellular connectivity and has 1GB of RAM inside.
Those aren’t the makings of an iPad or Galaxy Tab killer, but if HTC can get this thing onto the market at a respectable price point (around $200 is our guess) then they might have something compelling on their hands. Of course, the company has more important things to worry about in the meantime so we’ll have to see if this device ever sees the light of day.
