Recently we’ve seen every other manufacturer releasing a new device in the market. Well, things are a bit different for HTC in the US as the company announced to cease the sales of its tablets in the US market.
The Taiwanese giant has never a key player in the tablet market. With just 3 tablets released in the US that include the HTC Flyer, HTC Jetstream and HTC Evo View 4G. However, all 3 of these tablets are going to be discontinued in the country.
One HTC representative had the following to say about this move,
“These tablets met the expectations and completed their lifecycle. This has been a learning experience for us.”
“We’re continuing to watch the tablet market very, very closely for the right opportunity to re-enter in a way in which we’re not just offering a “me too” tablet, but a product that’s compelling, differentiated, and inspiring to our customers,” He Added
This announcement has put to rest some of the previous rumors about an upcoming HTC tablet – rumors that were highly unlikely to begin with in the first place. HTC has never been interested in the tablet market, at least not in the previous 6 months. They’ve focused more on the smartphone side and so far made some decent improvements in that field. Although, this announcement doesn’t mean that HTC will be giving up on tablets completely but it will take time to comeback with something that competes against the likes of iPad and other Android tablets as well.
What do you think about HTC’s tablets? Do you think HTC will have the same fate with tablets as HP did with TouchPad?
