First the article does a push down, then a pop-over. Can't read that kind of crap.

I didn't even know HTC was in the tablet market so... yeah, probably a good decision there.

/on my 2nd HTC phone.

I like HTC phones but their tablets were.. underwhelming. I was hoping they would partner with Google for the Nexus tablet but there's always next year.

/just converted 2 more iPhone users to HTC today

The author doesn't seem to know that HP has more tablets than just the TouchPad... and they're planning on taking another run at the market.

Good to see Apple share being down to 50 from 80. Hopefully hitting 35 next year.

Ditto. Would definitely consider one, seems they locked themselves out of the market by going with just a limited number of retailers to buy it from.

On my 2nd HTC phone now Evo Design. Really nice toy for me.

HTC is Microsoft's new bottom biatch now. She will be making W8 tabs within the year.

there was an article months back that HTC wasn't selected to make RT tabs, and making X86 tablets is probably a bridge too far for HTC (no experience in that area, at least they made some ARM tablets for the last year).

Due this month, so hopefully not long now. That is for stock phones, which mine is fortunately.

It's supposed to include home screen rotation as a new feature. A few months ago I exited an app and holding the phone sideways and the home screen went into landscape. You could scroll between all the screens, all icons and text was landscape, it was landscape. Then when I rotated back to portrait and didn't go back, and I've never managed to reproduce it. Not rooted or anything. Weird.

/Also on my second HTC.
//Two year guarantee in Europe and UK.
///Looked at Samsung, Motorola and Sony. But stayed with HTC.

Android phones have the capability of rendering the home screen in landscape mode, however you can usually only trigger it in a car dock.

On some manufacturers phones, it's triggered by holding a magnet to the back of the phone (my NexusOne did this, as do most HTCs I believe), this kicks it into car mode which will allow the home screen to be rendered in landscape. Though some manufacturers short pins in the microUSB connector in the dock instead of having a battery (Samsung does this I believe, as my GSII doesn't go into car mode until I connect the USB connector into it)

Most custom roms allow you to do this full time. For instance Cyanogen allows 90, 180 and 270 degree rotation of the home screen.

Oh, and it looks like it will be a standard feature in 4.1.2 

/oh for post editing :-(
