MWC 2011 Barcelona: HTC Scribe Tablet To Launch

Over the past few weeks, the internet has been rife with reports of what we can expect to see at the coming CES show at the end of this week. Particularly for us here at OSM, we have covered articles on possible smartphones, Blu-Ray players, TV’s, tablets and so on, and its the latter we wanted to talk to you about. A tablet device surprisingly enough, not to be shown at the CES, but in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. We are talking about HTC’s Scribe.

Although details are still a little sketchy, what we can tell you from the guys over at dialtosave.co.uk via Digitimes, is that the 7-incher featuring the new Android 2.4 Honeycomb will also come packed with NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor which we keep hearing about, WiFi, GPS included, 2GB of internal memory, 32GB microSD card, and for those of you who are technically minded a 1280 x 720 resolution.

Also when we finally see HTC‘s device ship out, you will benefit from the inclusion of a capacitive stylus thus allowing you to access your touch screen without the worry of it getting dirty. Until such times when we officially receive more information, we will leave you with a passing statement from CEO Peter Chou who said, “Customers may want Windows or Android; or they may want big screen or small screen, they may want keyboard or tablet; HTC will let the consumer decide.”

What do you make of HTC’s Scribe specifications so far? Is there anything you would like to see? Let us know.

    I personally would like to see a front and back camera, 2 x USB ports or even USB 3.0, capability of keyboard attachment via means of a dock, 3g/4g/802.11n support, 2 x micro SD expansion ports, DLNA support (client as well as server), option to remove custom built apps like facebook, twitter etc without having to root, root support without having to DIY (professional market are tablet users too) and finally a must, SUPPORT FOR LINUX USERS (I mean come on its unix based and they still don’t offer support for linux users). Oh yeah and a Cherry and Cream on top of that Honeycomb :)
