Fierce Wireless today is reporting that HTC’s CEO Peter Chou has confirmed that his company is indeed working on an Android based tablet, despite statements last year from HTC spokesperson Eric Lin saying that, at the time, there were no plans to build a tablet. (a lot can happen in this time, we know, this statement was made last July).

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a part of the Department of Defense charged with supplying cutting edge technological options for the entire Department, is currently beta-testing a mobile translation app called Translation System for Tactical Use (TRANSTAC). The app “provides sentence and phrase translation on an easy-to-use, hand-held smart phone.” The Nexus One seen in the photo on Defence Talk would lead one to believe they are using Android as their mobile platform of choice.
If only this were true… Too bad, it’s only a render at this point, but it’s looking really fancy. What is it? It’s a triple-screen phone with a hardware keyboard put somewhere on the inside and looks quite complicated to handle.
