HTC Flyer Specs Rumored On The Web: 7″ Display And Android 2.3 Gingerbread
HTC is going to debut on the tablet market in 2011 and the first slate that will be released by the company will be called Flyer. The HTC Flyer will be a low-end tablet, but the Taiwan-based company needs to test the waters before entering the slate competition therefore a single-core, 7-inch tablet will be just enough for the momeny.
The company’s tablet will be powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU found in many smartphones, Qualcomm’s MSM8255, a 7-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen, 1.3MP camera in the front for video chat and Skype video call support, 5MP camera on the back, 4GB of built-in memory with additional support for microSD card, 3G support, HDMI port, DLNA streaming, a capacitive-friendly stylus, a tablet-enhance Sense UI, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.
These specs aren’t very impressive and I don’t think that HTC will sell too many units. The tablet needs no more testing as iPad, Samsung, and others have ensured that people will buy these products.
Anyway rumors coming all the from Norway also say that HTC will launch a 10-inch slate with 4G LTE support soon after the Flyer’s launch. We think that this is the long-expected HTC Scribe tablet, but some new bits of information would be required before jumping into conclusions.
