HTC has just placed an order for a Tablet device if Digitimes latest report is to be believed.

According to the Taiwanese website, Taiwan-based notebook maker Pegatron Technology recently landed orders for HTC's yet to be announced Android tablet PCs.

HTC reportedly will launch a tablet PC using Nvidia's Tegra 2 platform and Google's Android operating system in the next year.

Rumours are suggesting that the device will feature a multi-touch panel with a resolution of 1280×720, a 32GB solid state drive (SSD), 2GB of memory and several functions such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

According to Digitimes however, Apple is expected to put pressure to Pegatron by shifting its orders away as HTC is believed to be the strongest competitor of Apple's iPad, the sources noted.

HTC and Nvidia declined to comment on the rumours.
