The HTC Flyer 7 inch tablets is expected to start shipping any day now. It features a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, and support for finger and pen input. The tablet also runs Google Android 2.3, since HTC hasn’t had time to develop a custom version of its HTC Sense software for Android 3.0 Honeycomb yet.
But DigiTimes reports that HTC does plan to launch two tablets running Android 3.0 closer to the middle of the year. It’s not clear of HTC is waiting for Google to release the Honeycomb source code, which could take a while, or if HTC will take a page out of Samsung’s book and just build a series of widgets and apps that can run on top of Honeycomb.
According to DigiTimes, the upcoming HTC tablets will also be part of the Flyer brand. But there’s no information on screen size, processor, or other specs yet.
