Pegatron to manufacture HTC tablet?


Digitimes sources are reporting that Pegatron Technology will manufacture HTC’s rumoured Android tablet.

According to the report, the HTC tablet will be powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 platform and Google Android (3.0 as rumoured?). It will come with a 1280×720 multitouch display, 2GB RAM, a 32GB SSD, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. Its multimedia capabilities are described as “stronger than that of iPad.”

There is no word on availability but Digtimes expects that HTC’s tablet could sell for around US$800. Should it come with 3G connectivity, the carrier subsidized pricing would be even lower.

There is a bit of drama brewing as Apple is apparently displeased about Pegatron’s decision to manufacture the competing tablet. Apple could shift some or all of its orders away in response.
