HTC Gives it’s New Tablet, Dubbed the Flyer a Release Date


HTC announced yesterday that their first tablet, the Flyer will hit U.K stores on May 9.  Although it’s their first tab, fans of the company think it might actually give Apple’s iPad 2 a run for its money.

HTC is touting the Flyer as a tablet meant for gamers on the official page and the specs somewhat back that idea up. Here’s what I found:

  • Weight: 420 grams
  • Display: 7 inch TFT Capacitive touchscreen with a1024 X 600 resolution.
  • Input: Gyro Sensor, Multi Touch, Accelerometer, Proximity Sensor
  • Operating System: Android 2.4
  • CPU: Single-Core Qualcomm 1.5 GHz
  • Ram: 1GB
  • Memory: 32GB Internal (MicroSD Slot included for extra memory)
  • Video: Mp3, WMA, AMR, OGG, AAC, AAC+ and WAV
  • Audio: MPREG 4, Xvid, WMV, 3GP, 3G2, avi
  • Bluetooth: 3.0
  • Wi-Fi: 802.11 b/g/n
  • Camera: 5 MP rear, 1.3 MP front.

Besides those specs the Flyer also comes with a nifty ‘magic’ pen. You know, in case you got chubby nubs. According to their website; “HTC Flyer's magic pen transforms anything. It can draw, paint, write, and even retouch pictures. It can be a highlighter for the reader (and by the way all your highlights will be collated when you're done). The HTC Flyer can link audio to the notes you take for work, and it can add voiceover to a storybook you're drawing up at home. Work or play, it's magic for the whole family.”

I personally like HTC. So I’m pretty anxious to see what people in the U.K think when they get their hands on the Flyer next month. Hopefully this is just the shot in the arm the tablet industry needs in order to shake the iPad off it’s throne.
