Yet another device has entered the world of tablets, however, this tablet is the first Android to be offered.
The HTC Flyer runs on the Android 2.4 version. For those who despise Apple iPads and the other copycat tablets out there, the HTC Flyer provides something new. Though by looking at the Flyer it resembles the iPad, there are features the device offers that surely make it stand out.
The sleek device offers a battery powered pen that you can use to create notes, sign digital documents and of course draw.
In landscape mode, the HTC is 13 centimeters wide and is easy to grasp with two hands. The Flyer is also designed to have the four touch-sensitive Android OS buttons run along the bottom of the screen and moved to the left side when it is in landscape mode.
The problem with the Flyer is the battery operated pen is not included with the tablet and sold separately. Don’t expect to buy the pen for cheap, the cost for one is $80. Be sure to keep track of it as well, since there is no slot, no case, not even a loop to secure the pen to the tablet when it’s not being used.
HTC has announced that the Flyer will be getting a Honeycomb upgrade soon. Until then, the Flyer is easy to use and makes good use of the pen.
