HTC Flyer Gets Android Honeycomb (3.2) Update

"Great news if you’re an HTC Flyer user: the Taiwanese smartphone giant has released the Android 3.2 update for its 7-inch tablet. The update weighs in at 210MB and bumps the version of Android from 2.3 Gingerbread up to the proper 3.2 Honeycomb for tablets."

This has been long-awaited, but it's finally here! The Flyer has been a good performer with Android Gingerbread, and should be quite impressive with a true tablet OS. Aside from the enhanced dedicated stylus button, the other buttons become inactive. It'll be interesting to see if the 7-inch form factor catches on after the success of the Kindle Fire.

HTC Flyer 3G Gets Honeycomb Update

"HTC just confirmed over on Facebook that the GSM 3G version of the Flyer gets the Honeycomb update today, the update for WiFi-only users is "coming soon.""

It's great to see HTC doing the right thing here! Anyone with the HTC Flyer should be pretty happy about this. As far as I know Samsung still has not released an update for the original Galaxy Tab to bring it up to Honeycomb. Have any of you updated your Flyer to Honeycomb? If so, how's it working for you?

HTC Takes a Flyer With Their New Tablet

"Yes, we're talking about the 7-inch Flyer, the most unique of this year's Android tablet offerings, opting for a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a sturdy aluminum construction that doesn't even try to compete in the race for extreme thinness, and a Magic Pen to make you forget it's running Gingerbread and not Honeycomb (yet). Also set for release under the EVO View 4G moniker on Sprint in the US, this tablet is the sum of a set of bold choices on the part of HTC."

HTC has really made a name for themselves in the Android marketplace, coming up with some innovative designs and features and their Flyer tablet is no exception. Check out this review to see if it's the right tablet for you. As far as I'm concerned, this one is right up there on my wish list.

HTC Takes a Flyer On Tablets

"The HTC Flyer picks up on HTC’s now-familiar unibody design. The 7-inch 1024 x 600 screen offers up HTC Sense, now customised for use on a tablet. Than means it works in landscape much more naturally making much better use of the screen space on offer. The HTC Flyer is very much a HTC Sense tablet meaning it won’t be launching on Honeycomb."

Hooray for tablets! By the end of the year, everyone is going to be selling their own kind of tablet. HTC, though, has its own plans and the Flyer looks to be a good option when it becomes available. The video makes it look fairly fluid and fast though the stylus, at least for me, is a welcome addition. Touch has revolutionized mobile computing, but it just feels a bit inaccurate to me. For many things, it does not make a difference, but I can see myself whipping out the tablet to do some notes once in a while. Does the HTC Flyer perk your interest, or do you only have eyes for the iPad2?
