HTC to Field Android Tablet

It's apparently going to tempt Apple to expand its suit when it fields the Android-based tablet it’s reportedly got

HTC, the big Android phone maker being sued by Apple, is apparently going to tempt Apple to expand its suit when it fields the Android-based tablet it's reportedly got.

Bloomberg says that right after Christmas the Taiwan firm filed for a trademark with the US Patent and Trademark Office on a tablet called the HTC Scribe, HTC's first tablet, a new revenue stream and another aggravation for Apple's iPad.

The sometimes right, sometimes wrong DigiTimes says it's heard from Taiwanese component makers that the seven-inch dingus won't be announced until mid-February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

It's supposed to use the tablet-supporting Honeycomb cut of Android, a k a Android 3.0, whose exact availability is debatable.
