HTC Teases Tomorrow’s Event, Officially Gives Up On Tablets?
We just shared with you the latest pic to arrive of HTC’s rumored Accord/8X Windows Phone 8 handset, which we’ve been wondering if it will show up at tomorrow’s HTC event. With the clock ticking down, HTC has a new teaser for the event up, and separately, we’ve noticed something interesting going on with tablets at HTC’s site.
First up: the tease. There’s precious little to see here, but that clock looks a heck of a lot like the one from Windows Phone, making us a bit more confident that at least some of the three rumored HTC WP8 models will be on the menu tomorrow. That doesn’t discount the possibility of also seeing that five-inch 1080p Android, but the timing of those recent rumors aside, there’s been little to actually suggest it will show up tomorrow.
What about HTC and tablets? There have been rumors about a possible Flyer 2, as well of talk about why there might not be any Windows RT tablets from the manufacturer. Mosey on over to HTC’s site today, though, and you’ll notice there’s no longer an option up top for info on tablets. Sure, they show under “support”, but there aren’t any prominently-linked-to product pages. We’re not sure exactly when the change went down, but as of less than two months ago, according to the Internet Archive, HTC still maintained a link for tablets; that page is now dead.
