HTC is preparing tablets on Windows, and LG - on Android - BBC News

appears tablet market is haunted by HTC and LG, which have become outsiders on it. HTC struck many, saying that will make the device on Windows RT. LG once again experience the same fate, releasing Android-tablet.

HTC plans to launch two “pills” on a lightweight version of Windows 8 – Windows RT. One of them will receive a 7-inch display, the second – a 12-inch. The plates will have plain names R7 and R12. As the processor, rather vsgo will be used Snapdragon 800 – quad “monster” with a frequency of 2.3 gigahertz. In addition, the tablet will receive two gigabytes of RAM and a 13 megapixel camera.

Especially noteworthy display devices. R7 will record 1920 x 1080 pixels, and the R12 – altogether 2048 by 1536 pixels. The tentative date of release of new products – October 13. According to some reports, the company also planned to release phones with “full” Windows 8, said UnwiredView.

likely to R7 and R12 using the updated version of the Windows RT code-named Blue. So far, the decision to take revenge on the HTC tablet market with Windows looks inconsistent – Microsoft OS is not very popular, and the current market players who choose Windows, facing challenges. For example, recently a company called Nokia investors to abandon Windows Phone (read, go to the Android).

looks more reasonable LG desire to enter the tablet market. A few years ago the company has introduced the failed “pill” on Android, called Optimus Pad. Since then, LG has changed, its flagship became really welcome phones, so the company is once again attempt to gain a foothold in the tablet market, although a piece of the pie away from Apple and Samsung will not be easy.

features of the new tablet is not yet known. Experts believe that the “tablet” is still going to work on Android. Estimated release date of new items – the third quarter of this year.
