HTC Flyer to enter 7″ Android Sector – Specs Revealed

Posted on 25 January 2011 by

It would be silly of HTC not to consider bringing an Android Tablet to the market. They’ve done a few tablet-like devices in the past but with the 7-10” consumer tablet sector booming, this is one that could set some seriously big sales numbers, especially given the maturity of Sense, HTCs well-respected user interface, utilities and applications suite. Looking at the rumored specs I see strong competition for the Galaxy Tab but there’s lots more to find out before it can be recommended.

List of current 7″ Tablets from the UMPCPortal database.

The specs put forward so far (by Amobil, who also posted an image) are:

  • 7” screen at 1024×600
  • Snapgragon MSM8255 (1Ghz single-core with Adreno 205)
  • HDMI-out
  • DNLA support
  • 5mp rear camera with LED flash (1.3mp front camera)
  • Launch timeframe:March (via Digitimes)
  • Android 2.3 (upgradeable to 3.0)

Of course, price is unknown along with size, weight, battery life and all the other important things you need to know to make a decision. We’re hoping they will be revealed/leaked during MWC or CeBIT at the latest. With lots of people talking about dual-core, don’t get led into thinking it’s yesterdays CPU. Dual-core means less battery life under load, more cost and that GPU could outperform the one on the Galaxy Tab. A 3.0 upgrade should also be taken into consideration.
