Review HTC Flyer 7 inch WiFi+3G Tablet/MID

 

I believe I can fly. It's finally here – the tablet from HTC. The

Automatically rotating controls; Fan / silent operation; 5 MP digicam & webcam; Tablet can be used as modem, access point and DNLA player; Brilliant colors

High price; Glossy display

The HTC Flyer left the competition in the 7 inch field far behind. The HTC tablet is currently the fastest of its kind in the 7 inch sector. Possible opponents: Dell Streak 7", Samsung Galaxy Tab.

HTC Flyer Gingerbread Tablet

 

Honeycomb has been a bit of a disappointment so far and because of that, all the tablets running it have not been received well despite most of them packing some serious horse power. It's a bit

The Flyer is HTC's first venture into the tablet space and I had high hopes for this as it looked like a winner right from the start, well at least on paper. If I may quote Morpheus from the Matrix, "Everyone falls the first time" , this is exactly...

HTC Flyer (U.S. Cellular)

 

While the rest of the industry is rushing to produce 10-inch tablets that compete directly against the Apple iPad 2, HTC is throwing out a curveball called the HTC Flyer. Using a 7-inch screen and running Android 2.3, the HTC Flyer feels like an echo...

Fans of 7-inch tablets will appreciate the HTC Flyer's screen quality, durable construction, HD video recording, and unique features, such as digital pen compatibility and HTC's Sense UI customization

The Flyer is small, thick, and pricey, and isn't running Google's Android 3.0 tablet OS. Its most distinctive feature, the Magic Pen, may not come included and is expensive to replace

The HTC Flyer puts a new spin on the 7-inch Android tablet, but its high price and smartphone-style OS are a tough sell next to its bigger, cheaper Honeycomb kin.

HTC Flyer review – Pen pal

 

Considering the avalanche of tablets now on the market one could be forgiven for thinking “How will this one be any different?” The HTC Flyer, though, is nothing if not unique.Yes, it's an Android tablet; but one which has decided to zig when every...

7.0" 16M-color LCD capacitive touchscreen of WSVGA (600 x 1024 pixels) resolution ; Single-core ARMv71500MHz CPU, 1GB RAM, 16/32GB of user-available storage ; Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) with HTC Sense 2.1 UI ; Quad-band GSM 850/900/1800/1900 and...

Weighs almost as much as an 8.9" tablet ; Charges only with the supplied HTC charger ; Non-replaceable battery ; Lower resolution than current crop of droid slates ; Lack of dual-core processor ; Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread instead of 3.0 Honeycomb ; 5...

That’s that then. One of the most unique Android tablets out there - the HTC Flyer. It does well - even without the all-important dual-core processor and cream-of-the-crop Honeycomb OS.

The HTC Flyer Review

 

This is HTC's first tablet and unlike the Android tablets that launched last year, it doesn't suck. At the same time, unlike those that came out this year - it doesn't run Honeycomb. You see, NVIDIA was Google's target partner for Honeycomb and...

If you view tablets like the iPad 2 or Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 as being the target for perfection, something like the Flyer will come as a disappointment. If you're like me however, and view tablets as a line of products still in their infancy then...

HTC Flyer Is a Decent Tablet With a Pointless Stylus

 

Without the stylus you have an unexceptional, expensive Android tablet with a 7-inch screen. Shelling out the extra $80 for the stylus gives you an unexceptional, even more expensive tablet with a pointless gimmick.

In the past few months, we've reviewed four Honeycomb tablets, which despite some minor differences — a USB port here, a keyboard dock there — have largely been built from the same cloth. You're familiar with the threads: a...

Extremely well-built ; Very polished Sense UI ; Stylus adds a new dimension ; Over seven hours of battery life

Stylus costs $80, easy to lose ; Poor camera quality ; No OCR apps supported

The Flyer gets so much right, which is why HTC’s pricing oversight is such an incredible shame

HTC Flyer

 

Thanks to well-integrated pen input and smart Sense software, the HTC Flyer is an Android tablet that's good for work and play.

HTC deserves kudos for applying some much-needed innovation to Android tablets. The pen functionality is really compelling, making the Flyer a good productivity partner as well as an entertainment device. We also like the vibrant display, rich Sense...

HTC Flyer WiFi Review

 

Let's take a look for a bit at the United States' first look at HTC's Flyer tablet. As you may well know by now, there's another version of this device out there by the name of EVO View 4G – have a look at our hands-on with that version of the device...
