Summary: This is another HTC with good technology and good feel. it has good features and if it was fast and had long battery life it would be an excellent item. I wanted to try a stylus tab different from Galaxy series. it was the cheapest but it is is not in keeping with HTC standards. The battery life is poor perhaps the poorest in this range of tabs. the tab is slow. there is now where to hold its large size stylus.
Summary: Ok to start this little thing is pretty awesome.its fast and the battery life is great.takes a long time to charge.the only thing that is bad about it is the fact that it doesn't come with the htc scribe digital pen.that was a big factor for me getting the flyer was for the scribe technology and the pen.the shipping was pretty fast and the shipper gave me a complimentary pen to go with it.there's a funny issue with the memory though.it says its a 16gb but when look at it...
Great size, intuitive pen integration, but just falls short

Summary: Just some quick disclaimers prior to starting this review. I am writing this as a tech enthusiast and I will have to admit that HTC is one of my favorite gadget manufacturers. My primary table is the 1st gen iPad and I bought the Flyer because I was intrigued by the Scribe (pen) integration. So here we go: Hardware: This is a 7 inch table with a single-core 1.5Ghz Qualcomm chip processor (more on this later) and aluminum uni-body design. What does it mean to be uni-body?
Summary: This review is less about the item, and more about how the item is listed. > Product Description: HTC Flyer is a portable 7-inch tablet with a magic pen that can do more for you than you can imagine. Given that wording and the fact that the tablet alone is widely available in retail stores for $499 or available online for $400 you might think that this item is actually the tablet plus the bundled htc scribe magic pen.
Summary: Wow, the size was right, the navigation was right, it worked well and I liked the idea of being able to take notes on this thing in my own handwriting. Unfortunately it wouldn't run Skype video chat, had no "read to me" apps, no netflix, and was heavy. I hoped that Kindle size meant kindle weight but, not the case. Battery life: good. Charger matched my blackberry: plus. Front camera: thought it was a plus, but, wouldn't work with Skype so didn't matter.
Summary: _SPECS_ * 7" Screen (1024x600 resolution) * 1.5GHz Processor * 1GB RAM * 32GB Internal Storage * 5 Megapixel Camera * 1.3 Megapixel Front-facing Camera * Available with 3G * GPS/Bluetooth/WiFi b/g/n As far as hardware goes, the Flyer is definitely a bit on the heavy side when compared to my cousin's iPad. He complained about it, but it's not like you really notice how heavy it is when you use the device.
Excerpt: As far as the weight goes, the Flyer is definitely a bit on the heavy side when I compare it to my brother's touchpad. However it's not like you really notice how much it weighs when you use this device. The Flyer's screen is also a lot smaller so it is less awkward to hold with one hand. The heftiness of this devices makes it feel more sturdy than the iPad. It's sort of a rugged device. The word manly comes to mind.
