Remember the Android tablet from HTC that was supposedly going to debut at CES? The tablet and its super-secret unveiling never materialized and now we may know why. According to Anthony Petts, Australian Sales and Marketing Director for HTC, both the Android and Chrome-based tablets are being shelved so the company can focus on a new crop of smartphones. Disappointing news for the tablet fans in our midst but not surprising. With the Apple tablet rumors reaching a crescendo, many potential tablet manufacturers may be taking a step back to see what Cupertino has to offer first.
