HTC Flyer

And so i said earlier this week we will do a feature post about all of the new tablets that have flooded the market recently , so here is number 1 the HTC flyer who is a member of the 7 inch club, it will sit in stores next to the Blackberry Playbook and the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the flyer has one very special difference though that will set it apart from the competition but more on that further down the post.

So now the Specs:
  • 1.5 GHz single core Snapdragon CPU
  • 7inch 1024 X 600 resolution
  • 32GB internal storage (micro SD expandable)
  • 1GB Ram
  • 5 mega pixel AF camera
  • 1.2 mega pixel front facing camera
  • wifi b/g/n
  • 3g model ( & wifi only) 
  • Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP
  • GPS
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Android 2.3 with Sense for Tablet
So its well spec'd for a 7 inch tablet although with only 1.5 GHz on offer it may well undercut the Nvidia Tegra 2 and its 1ghz dual core greatness, aside from this the device will stand up well to the opposition from the giant 10.1 department.

It all makes SENSE:
If you have ever used or seen a HTC handset before you will agree that it is brilliant to look at and use and nothing has changed here apart from the size and convenience, new features include direct unlock by where you can unlock straight to the web browser or the camera etc which if you ask me is a deal maker how often do you just want to check the weather or news, now you 'just' can without the hastle and wasted time   another new few features are HTC's answer to Honeycomb they are the Reading App and Watch reader is well reading, from books, while Watch is a movie streaming service upon which HTC have tightly integrated into all of their new phones and update son older phones.

Selling Point :
The stylus that is included with the device (Europe Only) is based around what HTC are calling SCRIBE technology by where the stylus can draw all over the device anywhere you can draw highlight anything, you can then share it via twitter and email and everything else you happen to use, and while this is all great fun it isn't that productive, although that is also catered for with a notebook, a digital 1 naturally, it is integrated with Evernote so that whatever you do on the device will be stored securely online for you to view anywhere on any device, this would be a dream for students who must take notes in lectures and or lessons as you can also take audio notes while sketching or writing on the device.

So to finish up I think this device should interest you if you are looking for an all around great device with multimedia capabilities, working capabilities and with it all being contained in a neat Uni body constructed from aluminium a great device, until that is you look at the high price which will drop severely i would think currently being billed at £599, which at the moment is a No Deal.Here is HTC's short video about their Flyer.
