Aaron gets a demonstration of the HTC Flyer, the company's first tablet and yet another Android-powered device. It offers a 1.5 GHz processor, 7-inch display, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with a tablet-specific version of HTC's Sense UI. A new feature is HTC Scribe, which allows the user to write on the display with the included stylus.

The unibody construction is quite nice, but it'll be a tough sell against other devices like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and LG Optimus Pad. It's slated to launch in the second quarter of 2011. ?

Emilio Rivera
Emilio Rivera I'm gonna have to go with the HTC Flyer. Simply cuz I'm a graphic design artist and based on the fact that it comes with scribe and a stylus... it wins with me. Plus it's a different design altogether. I like the rest as well, but HTC is my pick.

Fitzroy Henry With apple u can enjoy having the top tech with everyone else for a long time because they don't make tech after tech after tech like htc and samsung...as soon as u think u have the best tablet or smartphone for htc and samgsung they come out with something new...if I had to rate the best tab in ur status I'd vote for the tab 10.1 the review phonedog got on the htc flyer sucked I wish Aron had done it...the hp tablet seems to be the best so far though... Apple will definately destroy these guys soon again...and it's only their 2nd tablet

Lanh Nguyen
Lanh Nguyen How can anybody want a flyer. Its just a large android phone and it doesn't even run on honeycomb. Its basically how everybody thought the ipad was just a large ipod touch. If the flyer ran honeycomb it'd be a different story cause at least honeycomb was meant for tablets.
