HTC Flyer Reviews
"Is there doubt that HTC can produce a premium Android tablet or have they hit a homerun with a great blend of unique functionality and a model that doesnâ€™t stray too far from the norm?"
"The HTC Flyer puts a new spin on the 7-inch Android tablet, but its high price and smartphone-style OS are a tough sell next to its bigger, cheaper Honeycomb kin."
"Yes, we're talking about the 7-inch Flyer, the most unique of this year's Android tablet offerings, opting for a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a sturdy aluminum construction that doesn't even try to compete in the race for extreme thinness, and a Magic Pen to make you forget it's running Gingerbread and not Honeycomb (yet)."
"The 7-inch tablet fits somewhere between a phone and a larger-screened tablet with its Sense-infused Gingerbread OS and single-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor."
"Way back in Feburary, when I first laid eyes on it, I declared the HTCâ€™ Flyer tablet my favorite tablet at Mobile World Congress. Why? I liked Flyer for two main reasons."
"Some great features, but ultimately overpriced and without Honeycomb."
"HTC seemed to be positioning the Flyer as a different sort of tablet -- something smaller and lighter than the portly Motorola XOOM
, but more multimedia and web-friendly than the average smartphone."
"HTCâ€™s a company that normally is first in the industry. Not so with the HTC Flyer. Itâ€™s HTCâ€™s first Android tablet, but plenty of others, including Asus, LG, Motorola, Samsung, beat it to the market."
"Right off the bat I'll say I still haven't used an Android tablet that makes me want to ditch my iPad for good. HTC's new Flyer Tab comes the closest, but still has a long way to go."
"So what makes HTC think that it has what you need when it comes to a tablet? Some have called out some glaring spec shortcomings of the HTC Flyer."
"Now, itâ€™s the turn of the HTC Flyer to shake things up once more, and the talking point today is whether a slate with a stylus can compete when fingers are in fashion."
"The HTC Flyer has lived up to our expectations in terms of the experience it delivers."
"HTC decided to go another way with the Flyer, sticking with the smaller form factor and a phone OS. But there are enough changes afoot to consider the Flyer a unique beast, so letâ€™s dive in headfirst and take a look."
"The HTC Flyer is an interesting animal because the tablet is trying to bring the sexy back to 7-inch tablets in the Android space even as competitors like Samsung and LG are eying larger screens."
"Thanks to well-integrated pen input and smart Sense software, the HTC Flyer is an Android tablet that's good for work and play."
"The HTC Flyer, though, is nothing if not unique.Yes, it's an Android tablet; but one which has decided to zig when every other droid tablet out there has zagged."
