HTC Flyer Gingerbread Tablet

Tech2
25 October 2011
  • Summary: The Flyer is HTC's first venture into the tablet space and I had high hopes for this as it looked like a winner right from the start, well at least on paper. If I may quote Morpheus from the Matrix, “Everyone falls the first time” , this is exactly what has happened with HTC's Flyer. There's no denying the fact that the Flyer is built well enough to rival the iPad. The finish and attention to detail is impeccable and HTC gets full points for that.

HTC Flyer Wi-Fi

intomobile.com
9 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The Wi-Fi only version of the Flyer lacks 3G radio, thus allowing users to connect to the Internet only when in a hotspot. Rest of the specs are identical and include a 7-inch touchscreen, 1.5GHz single-core processor, two cameras (5-megapixel on the back and 1.3-megapixel on the front), GPS, Bluetooth, tons of built-in storage and a memory card slot. All this is nicely packed in a fancy-looking aluminum unibody.
  • Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
  • Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

HTC Flyer Review

SlashGear
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: All too often we criticize new tablets for trying to take on the iPad by photocopying its specs. Apple's slate has undoubtedly changed - and dominated - the consumer touch device market, but it seems that sales success has blinkered many rivals to the possibility that there are other ways in which tablets can find a role in our lives.

HTC Flyer WiFi Review

SlashGear
5 October 2011
  • 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. Other prices include English gems such as £599.99 for the 32GB 3G version, and £479.99 for the 16GB WiFi-only model. The 3G version hasn't revealed its price in the USA quite yet, but we're guessing an extra $100 wouldn't be out of the question.

HTC Flyer Review: In Depth

Recombu
1 October 2011
  • Conclusion: The HTC Flyer certainly succeeds where other Android tablets have fallen down, in that it provides a slick, nicely designed user interface. We really love how HTC Watch is implemented and how the Magic Pen/stylus works; we had hours of fun doodling on our screens with the Flyer. Where the Flyer falls down is on app support and battery life; if you’re the kind of person who wants a tablet to tinker with and install a multitude of apps, then we’d advise you to wait for the...

HTC Flyer

PC Magazine
6 September 2011
  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Fast performance. Clear, bright screen. Excellent pen input. Sense UI improves on Gingerbread OS. HTC's extra apps are solid.
  • Cons: 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.

HTC Flyer Review

Tekgoblin
27 August 2011
  • 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 shuffle.

A promising alternative to Apple’s iPad – Introducing the HTC Flyer Android Tablet – review

Gadgetmania
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 trends and the needs of customers. All in all, the Flyer practically markets itself and in the end, you will be completely satisfied with its great functionality.
