It’s raining tablets, add another – The HTC Flyer

Today HTC announced the launch of its much awaited tablet the “HTC Flyer” in the Indian market, the design is unibody aluminium pretty impressive and the screen size of 7 inches seems to be perfect on this tablet. It comes with the all new and improved HTC Sense UI and Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread). It boosts the standard features of a regular tablet – but comes packed with a 1.5 GHz processor.

The most interesting feature on this tablet certainly has to be “HTC Scribe Technology” which HTC describes as “HTC Flyer is the first tablet delivering a new HTC innovation that features natural pen interaction. It can draw, paint, write, sign documents, and even retouch pictures. It can be a highlighter for the reader (and by the way all your highlights will be collated when you’re done). The HTC Flyer can even add voiceover to a storybook you’re drawing up at home. Work or play, it’s magic.”. Basically it’s a really comfortable and easy to use pen like – stylus for the tablet.

The tablet comes packed with HTC Watch a new connected video service that will debut on HTC Flyer tablet, and will collaborate with OnLive, Inc. to launch the first cloud-based mobile gaming service on a tablet.

The Sense UI just gets better the 3D aspects of it adds to the already present eye candy – and in our opinion no UI in the market comes close to the Sense UI in terms of functionality and looks, well done HTC !

Pricing and Final line on it:

The Flyer is readily available at all the leading retail stores and online store for something around the Rupees 39,000 mark for the 32GB variant.

The Flyer certainly adds a new dimension to the already heated up Android market, pricing is competitive but could have been better – the Sense UI will not disappoint anyone, and the HTC loyalists shall certainly give this tablet a go.
