Details on HTC Flyer Android Tablet Leak

Ryan Whitwam

Norwegian site Amobile claims to have gotten a hold of the details (and blurry image) on HTC's upcoming Android tablet , called the HTC Flyer. Much like the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the Flyer will be a blown up Android phone. The device will be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, not Honeycomb like the official Google-backed Motorola Xoom. The Flyer will also be running a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255, probably at 1GHz.

Other relevant hardware details include a 7-inch 1024x600 screen, an HDMI-out, front and rear cameras, and HSPA+ 3G. The interface will be a modified Sense UI made especially for tablets. Amobile indicates that the documents are a few months old, so it is possible that HTC has changed course in the wake of Honeycomb, but we expect a close Google partner like HTC was appraised of the roadmap and decided to move ahead with a Sense-infused Gingerbread build anyway. Do you think the Flyer is going to be a reality?
