The Android pill market is one thing of a wasteland. Samsung places plenty of effort into making actually good tablets, Amazon places some huge cash into making, um, plenty of tablets, and everybody else is an also-ran. Can OnePlus shake up the marketplace for tablets the way in which it has for Android flagship telephones? It’d simply take a stab at it quickly.

Or not. As a result of the information right here is that OnePlus copyrighted the time period “OnePlus Tab,” essentially the most generic doable identify for an Android-powered pill made by OnePlus. Apparently, the trademark was filed within the European Union, despite the fact that it is being sought by the OnePlus father or mother firm primarily based out of Shenzhen. The applying was made in January of this yr, noticed by MySmartPlace earlier at this time.

An inventory for a OnePlus Pad may imply two issues: one, that the corporate is making ready a branded Android pill. Given the date of the submitting, it is no less than considerably doable {that a} system may very well be prepared by the tip of the yr. Or two, OnePlus is considering making a pill, however is someplace between nearly no dedication to a retail product and a preliminary pre-production stage.

Given OnePlus’s current explosion of recent telephone fashions, particularly within the funds market, additional growth into tablets makes a type of sense. It suits with the abandoning the earlier tight concentrate on flagship telephones. The query is, would a potential OnePlus Tab be a competitor to high-end iPad and Galaxy Tab gadgets, or one thing aiming for the a part of the market now dominated by the Kindle Hearth? We’ll have to attend and see. Or not, because the case could also be.
