In with the old and out with the new – at least that is the motto when it comes to the transition from 3g to 4g wireless internet. However, what does that mean for the tablet market and the new HTC Quattro set to launch soon? If speed is a concern, then the Quattro squashes that question right from the starting line. While it lacks the high-powered engine and smooth interior of the Audi Quattro, the HTC Quattro packs NVIDIA’s newest Tegra 3 quad-core processor, which places this tablet in a class of its own.
Under the Hood
According to multiple sources, the HTC Quattro boasts quite a few pleasant features including:
- NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor
- 16GB storage space
- 1GB RAM
- 1280×768 resolution
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Dual-band Wi-Fi
- MicroSD expansion
- 2-megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD video support
- 1.3-megapixel front camera with 720p HD video support
- Two speakers combined with two microphones
- Beats Audio technology
The major feature other than the quad-core processor is the addition of Beats Audio technology that HTC purchased from Dr. Dre. HTC will ship specialized earphones with the tablet that enhances the audio from the Quattro. Another interesting feature is the Sense UI, which is a customized widget user-interface atop the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
Other services included with the HTC Quattro include an HD version of HTC’s Watch movie store, which also consists of a Dropbox account for additional storage. Similar to its smartphones, HTC will include a more advanced version of its Scribe pen input technology.
While the HTC Quattro has yet to launch, it has drawn quite a bit of excitement from tablet users across the world. With its speedy quad-core processor, advanced features and modernized user-interface, the HTC Quattro may very well take over the tablet market.
