HTC Flyer Full Review: 7" Android Tablet with Top Notch Software
      #40708 - 05/24/11 06:00 PM

HTC makes excellent custom phone software that results in an compelling user experience. That's why they went with Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread rather than Honeycomb for their first tablet. Manufacturers have much more leeway when customizing the phone version of Google's Android OS. The 7" HTC Flyer tablet has all sorts of HTC Sense goodies including widgets and Friendstream as well as tablet-centric new apps like HTC Watch for videos, an ebook app and widget powered by Kobo and a notes app that's a custom version of the popular Evernote.

The Flyer is the only Android tablet that has both a capacitive touch screen and an active digitizer that works with the optional Scribe digital pen. You can take ink notes and doodle with pressure sensitivity. The Flyer runs on a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon CPU with 16 gigs of storage and a micro SD card slot. It has WiFi but no 3G, Bluetooth with a full set of profiles and a GPS. Front and rear cameras round out the features on this highly portable $499 tablet.
