I love my Samsung Galaxy Tab and there hasn't been a single new tablet that has interested me because I want something in the 7 inch form factor. It looks like HTC may have just jumped to the top of my want list with its HTC Flyer 7-inch Android tablet. This baby has some decent specs, great form factor, and features that appeal to me.
Specifications for the HTC Flyer include the following:
- HSPA radio, including AWS for T-Mobile USA
- Quad-band GSM
- 1.5 GHz single core CPU
- 1GB RAM
- 32GB Flash storage
- 1024x600 resolution display
- Aluminum unibody construction
- Dual cameras (5 megapixel on the back and 1.3 megapixel on the front)
- 4000 mAh battery
- microSD card slot
- Bluetooth 3.0
- 802.11 b/g/n WiFi
- Integrated GPS receiver
HTC also has a pressure sensitive capacitive stylus and technology that is supposed to give you a "groundbreaking pen experience".
Interestingly, the Flyer will ship with Android 2.4 and not 3.0 Honeycomb like the other new high-end Android tablets. Then again, HTC will offer its customized Sense stuff on there that might rival Honeycomb features.
I will have to see this in action before deciding on one, but have time since it won't be out until Q2 2011.
