HTC unveiled its first tablet at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The HTC Flyer is one of three Android tablets due for release this year from the manufacturer. HTC redesigned and adapted its Sense user interface to optimize user experience for the 7-inch tablet powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor.
The tablet does run on Android, but instead of utilizing Honeycomb, which is designed specifically for tablets, the HTC Flyer uses a hybrid version of Gingerbread. ZDNet reports that using the hybrid version of Gingerbread allowed HTC to bake Sense into the tablet.
Other specs include: 32 GB of internal storage, 1 GB of RAM, 5 megapixel camera, 1.3 megapixel front camera, 4000 mAh battery, Wi-Fi and Quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge. In addition, the HTC Flyer includes a digital pen that leverages new HTC Scribe technology that lets users digitally sign documents, annotate books, take notes that can be played back later, and copy URLs and Web pages into messages, according to PCMag.com.
