'HTC Scribe' Android Tablet Patent Filing Puts Gadget Geeks In Gear

A patent filing from HTC for a "handheld wireless device, namely, a tablet computer" even gives the device a name: Scribe. Gadget geeks can now debate over whether the filing indicates the device will feature a capacitive stylus (which HTC offers on the HD2 phone) or "a dual-mode touchscreen that would have an active digitizer from a company such as Wacom."

Slashgear boils down the specs: "As for the rest of the hardware, a 10-inch 1280 x 720 display is expected, while NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor and 2GB of memory is tipped. That'll be paired with a 32GB microSD card. OS is Android 2.4 Honeycomb, which is expected to arrive sometime before the end of Q1 2011."
