HTC Flyer 2 will be thin, metal and really fast: rumour

The HTC Flyer was a decent 7-inch tablet for its day but the company gave up on it pretty quickly. Considering it sported a $499 price tag without the all-important capacitive stylus, and debuted with a tabletized (read: awkward) build of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, we were never surprised it didn’t quite live up to expectations. But HTC,…

HTC Flyer starts receiving Android 3.2 Honeycomb update in Canada

It’s taken its sweet time, but WiFi models of HTC’s unique 7-inch tablet are finally being upgraded from Gingerbread to Honeycomb. That is, they are receiving the version of Android actually created for tablets, whereas the version that shipped with the device was a highly-modified version of a smartphone-centric version of Android. Nevertheless, the update…

Honeycomb update coming “soon” to WiFi-enabled HTC Flyer

The HTC Flyer launched earlier this year with a highly-modified and tabletized version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and a lingering promise that it would “one day” be updated to Honeycomb.

HTC Flyer gets early Honeycomb leak, our dreams come true

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…

Video: HTC Flyer Review

The HTC Flyer is a tablet, but it’s running a phone OS. Sound familiar? The Samsung Galaxy Tab, also a 7″ Android tablet, was released last year to mildly positive reviews, ran on a modified version of Android 2.2 Froyo, and ended up being a quiet hit. At the time it was the only real…

HTC to launch own brand tablet in 2015

Prior to the Nexus 9, it seemed HTC had all but given up on tablets. We hadn’t seen a tablet from HTC since the Flyer in 2011, so its high profile Nexus partnership with Google was somewhat surprising. However, according to the latest reports, the company isn’t stopping at the Nexus 9. Focus Taiwan cites…
