The patent was filed on December 26th by HTC’s patent law firm in Seattle, WA home to HTC’s United States’ offices. HTC has filed the patent for the name Scribe as “handheld wireless device, namely, a tablet computer.” So really there is no doubt that this is a tablet device.
We can’t really say whether it will run Android or Windows Phone 7 as Peter Chou said earlier this month that HTC was committed to both OS. In addition, you may remember that T-Mobile has filed some tablet related patents earlier this month.
If we were to see this HTC Scribe at CES it would be a very, very, rough first draft version. It is more likely that we would see a working prototype in Barcelona at MWC.
