HTC preparing 10.1 inch, 1080p Windows 8 Tablet?

[quote]Taipei, March 31 (CNA) Taiwanese handset maker HTC Corp. is expected to launch a new tablet computer running Microsoft's Windows software this year, according to market research and consulting firm NPD DisplaySearch.

The new HTC tablet might install a 10.1-inch display manufactured by South Korea-based LG Display Co. with full-HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, or 218 pixels per inch, DisplaySearch said in a report released March 28 at its annual conference in Taipei.[/quote]

There have been quite a few rumored HTC tablets over the past year or so that have never seen the light of day, and this may be another. Also seems a bit out of HTC's area of expertise to build a full-on Windows 8 tab running laptop hardware. Nonetheless, I'm intrigued.
