HTC tablet PC is rumored to use N-trig’s touch screen technology

Perhaps, gadget lovers are passionately waiting for the release of a tablet PC made by HTC, but there is hardly any information about the launch date of this tablet PC. It is supposed to be released from Verizon on November 26. However, a lot of rumors can be heard surrounding this upcoming HTC tablet PC. The latest rumor that has already been spread out is that HTC tablet PC will use N-trig’s touchscreen technology.

According to the rumor, HTC is going to team up with N-trig, the Israeli manufacturer, in order to produce the touchscreen for the GPad.

The most circulated rumor on Internet is that the tablet would be running on Chrome OS, which is highly impossible. There is also a strong possibility that the tablet would be based on an Android-based operating system and if it happens then it will really be a nice surprise. There is also possibility that the tablet would launch directly under the upcoming Android 3 Gingerbread OS. Android 3 Gingerbread OS is also rumored to be released in Q4 2010.

It is thought that N-trig was behind Microsoft’s Surface table, the first commercially available surface computer developed by Microsoft Corp.

However, N-trig has denied its any involvement in working with Microsoft for designing the 30-inch display on the ground that the Surface uses optical technology not being an actual touchscreen.

What makes people curious is that Microsoft invested some money into N-trig earlier this year. So, it meant that N-trig did work with Microsoft but apparently not on the Surface project. Even it was not involved in desiging other touchscreen tablets in the past also.

So, it is hard to tell anything about the rumor.
