Yep, another one

The Android tablet onslaught is on its way, folks. We already know for sure that Samsung, Asus, and Archos have plans to launch their devices very soon, and now HTC is apparently throwing its hat into the ring.

The smartphone maker hasn't said anything on the record about whether or not it has an Android tablet in the pipeline, but it certainly would make sense. HTC is the name behind the Droid Incredible, Sprint's flagship 4G Evo phone, as well as a handful of other high-selling Android handsets.

It has become very faithful to Android, as its first device in the US, the G1, brought it to fame around the world.

The HTC tablet would reportedly have an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 2 GB of onboard memory as well as a 32 GB memory card packed in. Nothing yet on the size. Many manufacturers are shying away from the 10-inch spec that the iPad introduced. Samsung's Galaxy Tab, for example, only has a 7-inch display.

It's rumored that it will sell for around $790, which makes it just a scoche more expensive than the iPad, but if it's 3G-equipped then hopefully carriers would be able to subsidize that price.

We're still waiting to see a Droid Tab, as the Droid name carries more weight in the Android market than anything else, but the manufacturer Motorola hasn't said anything about working on a tablet. Yet.
