Remember that odd 7″ tablet that HTC released earlier this year that was running a highly-modified version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread instead of tablet-specific Honeycomb? We reviewed the Flyer (and thoroughly enjoyed using it), but yearned for some tablet-specific Honeycomb apps. We never knew when the company, who did commit to upgrading the tab to Honeycomb at some point, would indeed follow through. Well, now that its big brother, the 10″ Jetstream, is a reality and coming soon to AT&T, an early build of Android 3.2 for the Flyer has leaked to the ‘net courtesy of British Android extraordinaire Paul O’Brien.
Be careful when loading the leak, as you will not only lose root (and may not be able to get it back) but you risk voiding the warranty in the process.
Anyone willing to take the plunge, let us know how it goes, but we advise you to wait until next week when Paul claims he will be posting a safer, pre-rooted version.
