Gordon has said that HTC will continue to keep tabs on the market, and will most likely return when they have a product that can compete with the iPad. HTC have launched three tablets in the US in the past two years, the Flyer, Evo View 4G and Jetstream, with none of them available for sale right now. Gordon has said:

It was a great learning experience for us, and they definitely met expectations.

I suspect we'll see HTC come back with a Nexus 7-like product, that would be priced at under $350-$400. But time will tell, I guess.
