Since December last year, there were rumors about HTC working on two Windows tablets codenamed HTC R7 and HTC R12 and now we finally have some hints towards their specifications. PhoneArena informed that HTC is planning to release the new Windows enabled tablets and their particularity is that it won’t use regular Windows 8 on board but Windows RT Blue (ARM) will be pre-installed. Windows RT Blue might prove a good technology if it deals the existing problems of Windows 8RT users. It was heard that HTC would offer at least two slates along with Microsoft’s OS, R7 and R12 according to the screen size. The titles having “R” probably show that these are using the new Windows RT Blue Microsoft edition but it was not confirmed that we’ll also see the “W” tablets with full-blown Win 8. It is not known also if RT will be rolled into Windows Blue.

The HTC R7 will be part of the small category, one of the smallest Windows tablets introduced by Win Blue with 7”Full HD screen. Further rumor informs that HTC R7 will be powered by a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and it has 2 GB of RAM. . Other specifications include 16 GB internal memory along with a microSD slot in order to expand memory, and a 13MP autofocus camera at the back of the handset. Some source says that when it comes to connectivity, the small Win RT Blue tablet may not include DLNA, HDMI or NFC but it will present a version with LTE/HSPA+ connectivity, Wi-Fi, and it will have Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS.


The larger HTC R12 will also present the same specification as the R7 has but it will also offer an alleged 12″ 2048×1536 pixels screen panel as well as more connectivity options. These specifications hint that these two devices will be amazing.

There are no final words about battery capacity and retail prices for the HTC R7 and HTC R12. The launching date is expected to be October 13, in time with the Windows Blue release time frame and various slates including Microsoft’s own Surface line running it. Microsoft would decide the official launch probably at the same time the new OS would be announced.

Like any other HTC handset HTC R7 and HTC R12 tablets can be unlocked by IMEI, using an unlock code.
