HTC’s first Android tablet to become named Flyer, be released in March

A gossip beyond Digitimes suggests The new htc will launch its first Android tablet in March. Dubbed the Flyer, the slate device is predicted to become an oversized version with the HTC Desire and will also be powered by Google Android 2.3. Particulars on the main hardware wasn't provided but I'd assume the tablet could be updated using the latest processor and display technology available on the market but not become a mere clone with the Desire. Although the Desire’s 1GHz Snapdragon CPU is usually a strong performer plus the AMOLED display is attractive, it will be nice to see another slate device using a dual-core Tegra 2 processor including a 7 10 ", high res Super LCD display.

The tablet will release with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but is expected to acquire a boost to Honeycomb (Android 3.0) if this tablet-centric version with the mobile os is released by Google. The Flyer is expected to produce on or before Q2 2011, a timeframe carefully chosen with the manufacturer. Based on Digitimes’ Asian sources, the Taiwanese manufacturer reportedly will launch with carrier support and hopes to to enter the market before the Motorola XOOM, the BlackBerry PlayBook and perhaps perhaps the iPad 2. Apart from the Flyer, HTC can also be working on 2 other Android tablets that can debut in June with Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb set up at launch. Anyone considering some super-sized smartphones from Peter Chou et al.?
