During the MWC 2011 show in Barcelona, HTC unveiled their first HTC Flyer tablet running Android. And now the Flyer tablet has already notched up orders of the tune of about a million units. It is coming up a bit higher then the entry level iPad 2 but the Flyer is 7 inches and targets a different style of mobile user.
The tablet doesn’t use Android Honeycomb, which allows HTC to provide their own Sense interface which plays two roles: improving ergonomics by making it easier to access the primary functions and to offer a common user experience across all of their products – distinguishing themselves from other manufacturers.
The HTC Flyer also brings back the stylus, something which has not been seen since the first tactile devices, with the tablet being a planner/notepad/design pad with a 7″ diagonal screen that offers a sufficiently compact screen allowing you to carry it anywhere with you.
Finally, HTC has negotiated partnerships to offer VOD services (HTC Watch) and online games (with OnLive) to open the tablet up to entertainment possibilities. Without having to visit download portals and content providers which may be provided by the competition, with this adding additional features and richness that other products don’t have.
