In comparison with other Android powered tablets, HTC Flyer is one of those distinct tablets with unique combination of features clearly separating it from its competitors. There have been several occasions that you would go to an electronic shop and find it difficult to choose the best device suiting your needs; when it comes to HTC Flyer, it has a distinct combination of operating system (Android v2.3 Gingerbread) and processor (1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655) unlike its competitors combination of Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and Android v3.0 Honeycomb operating system.
HTC Flyer is setting a new stage of uniqueness among tablets by changing the whole aspect of Android operating system; we all reckon that Android v2.3 is meant for smart phones leaving v3.0 Honeycomb for tablets. Another distinct feature on HTC Flyer is its 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655; latest tablets on the market from electronic giants like Acer use Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. I must admit HTC Flyer has set straight its indented customers, mainly those who like to draw or write on their tablets.
Currently, HTC Flyer tablet is available with WiFi only and 32GB storage capacity; more HTC 3G and 4G versions are expected on the market soon. In addition, HTC Flyer appears to place more emphasis on using a pen as the main input method unlike other tablets in the industry; in fact it is presumed, if you don’t like the pen, then you probably won’t like HTC Flyer; however, you technically don’t need a pen to use HTC Flyer.
HTC has some of the well designed handsets in the industry and its HTC Flyer tablet is not an exception. HTC Flyer tablet is mainly designed with aluminum and white accents at the top and bottom. Its 7-inch touch screen is surrounded by a half-inch black bezel and weighs only 14.8 ounces.
