HTC Flyer Tablet Review
I got the HTC Flyer in Taiwan on my Computex Trade Show trip and have been playing with it on and off on top of all the other gadgets I have. Finding the time is the hardest part. In any case after a couple of weeks of use, here are my thoughts and review of this little tablet.
The HTC Flyer is a 7" Tablet using the Android 2.33 Gingerbread build. Many expected the Honeycomb build in it but it wasn't to be. The Flyer uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5Ghz single core CPU and comes with 1GB of RAM. It also comes with 32GB of Storage. The storage will depend on where you buy the unit from. I also got a WiFi plus 3G version and paid roughly $700+ USD. It's a very expensive tablet comparing to others out there with bigger screens. It is also a bit heavy, weighing in about 421 or so grams. Dimensions around 195.4 x 122 x 13.2 mm. It is not a bad size and feels good holding it. The display is a LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors and resolutions to 1024X600 pixels. The display is quite good and crisp. The HTC Flyer also comes with a carrying pouch. The battery power is 4000 mAh, a decent power considering the size of the tablet. My unit also came with a Pen which can be used to scribble notes etc. It is available as an option in a lot of countries like the U.S. More on that later.
