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.
