HTC Has A “Major Announcement” For Tomorrow; What Could It Be?

What will be the next big thing from HTC? We’ve seen it bring us its first LTE smartphone, first Windows Phone 7 hardware, and just today heard about its first NFC-capable device. It looks like we’ll be finding out very soon indeed, as the company has sent out notices that it intends to make a “major announcement” tomorrow.

All we know for sure is that HTC’s CEO, Peter Chou, will be addressing the press via teleconference, beginning at 11:30am eastern time. After he finishes up with his announcement, he’ll be taking questions.

The big question is how major is “major”. Will this be game-changing, like Nokia’s decision to go WP7? Maybe it will be some new hardware; we know that the company has at least half a dozen smartphones planned for release by year’s end. We’ve seen some, like the HTC Ruby which appears destined for T-Mobile, but don’t know enough about their hardware and software to make any one seem like it might be up to the label “major”. Could HTC have gotten the nod to manufacture the first Ice Cream Sandwich-running Android?

Any guesses? We’ll know for sure tomorrow, so check back around noon to see what HTC’s big news is.
