    Yesterday was a busy day at HQ in the afternoon, so we didn't quite get to one last story of the day. HTC is planning to launch their own smartwatch competitor to the Galaxy Gear. They are also apparently coming out with a new tablet which they claim will be "disruptive." Today, more details were released by Bloomberg on HTC's plans. We are taking this as an opportunity to share the news for those who might be interested.

    As business has continued to deteriorate for HTC, they are grasping at straws for any opportunity to get a product to gain headway in the market. Their newest efforts will be this smartwatch device and tablet. While we won't comment on the tablet, because that is simply too bold of a statement to be credible, we can share Bloomberg's news on the smartwatch. Here's a quote with a bit more,

    Here's another quote from CEO Peter Chou in a BGR article,

    What do you guys think? One, can HTC really make a tablet that is truly "disruptive?" Also, will a smartwatch from HTC get your attention?

    HTC has tested the tablet waters once before with the HTC Flyer, which didn’t prove to be too popular, because it shipped with Android 2.3 at a time when Honeycomb tablets were appearing on the market. However, HTC made a well-built 7-inch tablet with true pen input. Many users of the Flyer held on to it as long as they could. But, Samsung came along with the Galaxy Note and offered a clearly superior device to the Flyer. Since then, we’ve heard nothing from HTC on tablets. I’d love to see an HTC tablet, again. Maybe, with excellent BoomSound speakers and a classy design to rival the LG G Pad 8.3.
