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...

There?s a 1.5 GHz single-core processor instead of a dual-core Tegra-or-something chip. The Flyer boasts HTC?s Scribe technology giving you drawing powers on any screen on the tablet. The aluminum unibody has the trademark HTC feel all over it. Oh yes?...

HTC Flyer

 

For artists and hand-writers, the HTC Flyer is a solid tablet thanks to its well-implemented pen-specific features. But if you're not interested in pen input, Android tablets with Google's latest tablet-specific Honeycomb OS are a better bet.

Fast performance. Clear, bright screen. Excellent pen input. Sense UI improves on Gingerbread OS. HTC's extra apps are solid.

Outdated, non-tablet-specific version of Android. Google Talk video chat isn't supported in Gingerbread. Slow browser performance. Cluttered default layout. Cameras are only mediocre.

Take the lock screen, for instance, the first thing you see when you turn on the Flyer. Instead of dragging an Unlock button across the screen, you pull a giant ring out of its shell and onto the screen. Or, you can drag an app into the ring, which HTC...

The HTC Flyer Review

 

I hate taking big quotes from past articles and using them as the premise for an introduction because it feels like I'm using previous work as a crutch. That being said, I've been meaning to reference something I wrote about HP three years ago and now...

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

 

Conveniently compact and light for travel, yet amazingly powerful, the HTC Flyer tablet with a 7" display and a superfast 1.5 GHz processor is perfect for web browsing. To make it even better, it features Adobe Flash support, multi-window browsing with...

The Magic Pen; Great screen

Not Android 3.0 (Honeycomb); Pricey

While the HTC Flyer is definitely a competent device on its own, the Magic Pen opens up a whole new world of usage options. While there are some setbacks that prevent the device from passing with…flying colours, the HTC Flyer is a great companion to...
