HCT is traditionally known for making some of the best and most popular smartphones in particular based on the Android OS. However after great success in the smartphone arena they also decided to jump in the tablet market based on the Android. This is from which the HTC Flyer came in – a fantastic 7-inch tablet that might appeal to many users that looking for a more portable tablet with the full feature set but in a more compact form as compared to the 10-inch tablets. However, one of the things that might frustrate some people is that lack of Honeycomb (Android 3.0) at least currently on the tablet. Although, HTC has promised to bring a Honeycomb update in the future.
Previously HTC Flyer has been available for $500 which might be too steep for many potential buyers particularly in the context of the rising competition from the likes of the recently announced Amazon Kindle Fire which will be only available for $200 and will come with a dual-core processor as compared to the single core processor on the HTC Flyer. Well, apparently Best Buy has felt the heat and now they have cut the price down to $299 effective already from 1st of October! This rather drastic $200 cut and makes HTC Flyer a much attractive choice in the 7-inch tablet arena as compared to the past. If you can live with its current limitations i.e., lack of Honeycomb, single core processor then HTC Flyer can be a very attractive choice as your next tablet purchase.
If you are wondering here are some of the features of the HTC Flyer:
- Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread (will be updated to Honeycomb)
- 1.5 GHz single-core processor
- 1 GB RAM
- 16 GB internal storage
- 7-inch display
- 5 MP rear-facing camera
- 1.3 MP front-facing camera
