Excerpt: HTC has taken a different approach to its first tablet. Like the Blackberry Playbook, the screen is seven inches, this instantly makes it a far more portable option and at just 122 mm wide, it can easily fit into a pocket. This form factor also enables you to hold it comfortably using one hand.

6 October 2011
Excerpt: HTC's recently launched Flyer is the company's first Android tablet after it launched a UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC) back in 2007. Not yet running Android 3.x / Honeycomb but Android 2.3.3 / Gingerbread and HTC Sense 2.1 for Tablet, the aluminum unibody device is powered by a Qualcomm single-core CPU at...
Conclusion: This device will be running you $499.99 at Best Buy and, if you're lucky, you can go in your local store and ask and it might be there right now. Online at the moment I publish this they're still stuck on pre-orders.
Excerpt: It has been over a month since I received the HTC Flyer for review and I have just decided to post my review on this device. I am sorry for the delay, but this device became one of those forgettable review devices that I receive and was placed below several review units and just got lost in the...
A promising alternative to Apple’s iPad – Introducing the HTC Flyer Android Tablet – review
8 July 2011
Conclusion: In a nutshell If you choose the ignore the relatively high price of the HTC Flyer, the truth is that overall, the tablet presents a lot more advantages than downsides. Even though HTC devices are known to be slightly bigger, one cannot simply ignore the efforts of the manufacturer of adapting to the...
Excerpt: Apple’s iPad is obviously the platform to beat in the tablet market . While companies the likes of Samsung and Motorola have ventured into competing with Apple with their own offerings, the public’s mindset is still skewed towards the iPad and iOS.
Pros: The right size for portability, The stylus is not a gimmick, it really is quite useful, Stylish. This is a tablet you won’t be embarrassed to tote around
Cons: Needs Honeycomb, Battery life not as good as other tablets
Excerpt: It is probably important to start this off by admitting something; I have yet to be impressed by a 10-inch tablet. The whole idea to this ultraportable slab of mobile-amazing is that it’s supposed to be… well, ultraportable.
Conclusion: 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 there's room to discuss something like the Flyer.
Summary: I believe I can fly. It's finally here – the tablet from HTC. The new device is called Flyer and has a 7 inch touchscreen that can display a resolution of 1024x600 pixels. A single core CPU with a system clock of 1.5 GHz does its work inside.
Pros: Automatically rotating controls, Fan / silent operation, 5 MP digicam & webcam, Tablet can be used as modem, access point and DNLA player, Brilliant colors, We noticed the controls very positively in the test. They also adjust to the display's positioning.
Cons: High price, Glossy display, We didn't miss much in the HTC Flyer. A HDMI port would add value to the device, but it wouldn't have an impact on the total score.
