HTC Flyer render

The HTC Flyer first popped up in a rumor posted only five days ago, but an alleged full spec list for the tablet has already leaked out for all to see. Norwegian site claims to have received the spec sheet and the render you see above, although they explain that the info "isn't brand new," so this list may change if and when the Flyer hits the market, which is rumored to be going down in March. The rumored specs are:

  • 7-inch, 1024x600 display
  • Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
  • 14.4Mbps HSPA
  • Skype calling
  • Android 2.3

These reported specs aren't anything terribly special, so I'm hoping that things may improve by the time that the Flyer actually comes to the market (again, if it ever does). Then again, the Flyer may just be a taste of things to come from HTC, as the company is rumored to be releasing two Honeycomb-powered tablets in June. So, are these specs enough to impress you or are you a little underwhelmed?
