HTC Flyer Android Tablet Release Date Is March 2011
HTC didn’t reveal any tablets at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 but the situation will be different at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. DigiTimes is reporting that the Taiwan-based company will release an Android 2.3 Honeycomb tablet in March which is sooner than the launch dates of the Motorola Xoom, BlackBerry PlayBook, and Apple iPad 2 which should all be released in April.
Digitimes added that the tablet will be called HTC Flyer and that it will be upgradeable to Android 3.0 Honeycomb soon after launch. There are no other rumored specs of the HTC Flyer, but it is said that two other HTC tablets will be released in June 2011 and we have a hunch that one of them is the HTC Scribe.
HTC is now an established smartphone maker and it’s selling the highest number of Android smartphones and it’s also a best seller when it comes to Windows Phone 7 devices. 2011 is the perfect time for HTC to enter the tablet market, but the company needs a perfect strategy and we shouldn’t rule out Windows-based tablets.
