Device named Flounder according to Wi-Fi Alliance certification, comes in three models
More information has come to the surface regarding HTC's rumored T1 tablet. On top of South Korean regulators passing a device with the 0P82100 model number, the Wi-Fi Alliance has also approved a device under the same identifier. The Wi-Fi Alliance shows that the tablet is named Flounder, according to the firmware version on the device.
To go along with the 0P82100 model number, two additional SKUs are outlined in the filing to bring more consumer options to the tablet market. Talk Android obtained the certification, displaying that the three model numbers were classified under "Tablet (Wi-Fi and other)." The tablet, running Android L, has switchable 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands, WPA and WPA2 security, and is certified for 802.11n and ac protocols.
Twitter account "UpLeaks" reports that the original 0P82100, the model number previously tied to the T1/Flounder, will be a Wi-Fi only version of the tablet, while the 0P82200 will be a United States CDMA2000/LTE version. The final SKU, 0P82300, is said to be a world LTE version. The Twitter account also posted that the T1 would be released before October 9.

None of the previously-leaked information on the tablet was confirmed in the new filing, so it's still isn't known with certainty that the device will bear the Nexus branding, or what the size of the screen will be. UpLeaks previously said that the device would be powered by a 64-bit Tegra processor, 4GB of RAM and an MDM9x25 modem. The tablet would reportedly have near-field communications (NFC) and GPS as well.
The device would be the first new tablet from HTC since 2011. The company has been giving hints that it would be returning to the tablet market since last summer.
