HTC Flyer 7-inch Tablet runs Android 2.417 Feb 2011
HTC finally took the wraps off its 7-inch Android tablet at the ongoing Mobile World Congress expo in Barcelona. The HTC Flyer -- that's what the HTC tablet's called -- has an attractive aluminum unibody design (just like smaller HTC phones). And surprise surprise, the HTC Flyer runs on Android 2.4, not Android 3.0 Honeycomb which is the de facto Android OS for tablets, according to Google.
The HTC Flyer is powered by a pretty fast 1.5-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and has 1GB RAM with 32GB ROM. The HTC Flyer Android 2.4 tablet has a 7-inch screen much like the Samsung Galaxy Tab and OlivePad. The 7-inch display supports a screen resolution of 1024x600 pixels.
The HTC Flyer also has a 5MP rear-facing camera while a front-facing 1.3MP camera for videochats. The Android 2.4 tablet supports wireless connectivity options like Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 3.0, and GPS. The tablet is HSPA+ ready as well.
The HTC Flyer has proprietary software like HTC's HD movie service, HTC Watch, and Scribe -- it lets you take notes, draw pictures on the tablet's surface really easily.
For a 7-inch tablet, the HTC Flyer weighs 420 grams. The Android 2.4 tablet will be available in global markets in Q2 of 2011.
