Remember 2010, the year HTC said they weren’t doing a tablet, and then didn’t? Well it’s 2011 and not only is HTC doing a tablet but they are doing 3 and the first one is coming here to the United States first!
According to Digitimes (which can be wrong every now and then) HTC is releasing three tablets in 2011. The first is called “The Flyer” (think red wagon) and will be released in the United States in March. It’s expected to look like a larger HTC Desire/ Nexus One and run Gingerbread, Android 2.3.

Digitimes sources have said that the HTC Flyer will be upgradeable to Honeycomb as soon as it’s available.

Digitimes reports that the HTC Flyer will be available in early March ahead of the RIM Playbook and the Motorola Xoom.
According to sources, HTC expects to release the other two tablets in June, running Honeycomb
