HTC has confirmed it plans to take another stab at the tablet market in 2012 after officially announcing a new fondleslab with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich early next year.

HTC CEO Peter Chou revealed the plan to Reuters, saying the company wants "to see whether we can make ourselves stand out" by creating a slab that isn't just another "me-too product".

Rumours have been doing the rounds for quite some time that HTC would be launching new tablets, so the announcement is far from unexpected.

It'll be interesting to see how it makes the latest slates stand out, though. Hopefully, it means more than simply including the latest version of HTC Sense and Dr Dre's Beats audio.

In the meantime, why not read what Reg Hardware thought about HTC's previous tablet attempt, the HTC Flyer, which went on sale earlier this year. ®
