HTC Flyer Impressions

     HTC had a hay day at MWC with the release of six new devices. One of those devices was HTC's first tablet that has been rumored for several months now. At first glance it looks like a giant HTC Sense-skinned phone, but it holds more secrets than meets the eye. It has quickly become my favorite 7" tablet so far.
     The Flyer is a powerhouse that packs 2.4 Gingerbread and a 1.5Ghz processor. The tablet also has a 5MP camera on the back with a VGA camera on the front. Immediately the device seemed outdated because it doesn't run Honeycomb, but HTC has stated that it will get an update when they formulate a way to skin it with Sense. At launch it will run a tablet specific version of Sense. The HTC Flyer looks like a great, small tablet that will only get better with Honeycomb.

Update: The killer feature on this tablet that I forgot to mention is the stylus. It has a stylus that you can use with the usual multi-touch screen. The software side of the stylus is called HTC Scribe.
