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 Leaves Older Devices Senseless

"A couple of days ago, when HTC announced the new Sensation Android smartphone, the company has also unveiled an enhanced version of its HTC Sense UI, namely Sense 3.0. Now, owners of already-launched HTC smartphones may want to know if Sense 3.0 will come to their devices. Unfortunately, the answer seems to be "no.""

Hope you didn't have your hopes set on getting HTC's latest Sense 3.0 on your brand new EVO 4G or that shiny new Desire HD because according to HTC they just don't have the poop to run it. It's quite the shame but it appears that the new HTC Sense requires some pretty beefy processor specs to glide along as HTC thinks it should. Only the two new dual core 1.2GHz devices and the the 1.5GHz Flyer will be able to handle HTC's sensational new Sense. Though no worries. I'm sure someone will have it wedged into a custom ROM in no time.

HTC Flyer Launching in April in the UK

Posted by Kevin Jackson in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 05:30 PM

"It's different in a number of ways: it's packing a single-core CPU (though 1.5 GHz is still snappy); it's running Gingerbread with Sense UI, with Honeycomb coming in Q2; it has a stylus and a number of handwriting/note taking features (hence the codename Scribe); and, it will be launching with the OnLive gaming service"

HTC's Flyer tablet will be launching soon (sometime in April, most likely) in the UK. Pricing is a bit high compared to the other tablets coming out, but the £500.00 (about $813 USD) is marked a preliminary price, so we can only hope that it drops quite a bit. No word on a US launch, but can it be too far behind?

This tablet seems to buck the trend of most of the newer tablets coming out with a single-core processor, Gingerbread, and a stylus, but it looks intriguing nonetheless. Anyone excited about this device, or are you waiting one of the others on the horizon?
