HTC – Android does not have a compelling tablet story yet

HTC has told PocketLint they have not found a compelling reason to make an Android tablet yet.

“You’ve seen how, at Computex, there were 80 different Android tablets”, said Eric Lin, the company’s global PR and online community manager, “so if we just release an Android tablet, then we’re one of 81… Whereas, if we have a compelling feature, a really compelling use, anything like that, then it’ll help us to stand out. It’s going to take a lot of work searching for that”.

HTC is not about to give up on tablets altogether however.

“We are always looking at it, but, right now, the whole idea is that in order to be successful with a tablet, you need to have something compelling. And not just a compelling form factor”. “You need to find that compelling use, that compelling story, that one compelling feature. And we are not going to do anything until we have found that”, Lin said.

Is HTC at risk of losing the market by sitting it out too long? Let us know below.
