Nowadays HTC is going through a tough patch. On one side, Apple is targeting the company for Patent infringement and asking for a ban on its devices in US and on the other side Microsoft barred HTC from accessing the Windows OS software build for tablets. HTC’s inexperience in the tablet market is the reason for this problem. Even the Microsoft is not happy the way things are with HTC in the tablet market. HTC has unveiled couple of tablets called the Flyer and Jetstream but both failed. Companies like Samsung, Acer, and Asus exhibited their upcoming tablets and other device on the Windows 8 platform at Computex 2012 event. But HTC was not there as it didn’t have the OS build to develop and showcase its Windows 8 tablet. Another reason was that engineers of HTC wanted to introduce their Windows 8 tablet with a customised home screen, with which Microsoft was not happy as it wants to sell Windows and not a customised skin on the tablet. It has also been reported that HTC is barred from accessing the OS only in the initial stages and after the OS is released it can develop its own tablet. If HTC shows significant growth in the Windows Phone 8 market then Microsoft could allow HTC from developing its tablet on Windows 8. We may see the tablet in next year which would be a great setback for HTC.
