HTC Flyer (Retail Version) Overview and Unboxing Video

Updated on 16 May 2011

Don’t forget that we’re doing a Live Review of the Flyer on Wednesday evening at 2100 CEST (your timezone here) where we do a detailed, 2hr review of the HTC Flyer with you in the chat session asking questions and steering the testing. It’s free, fun, detailed and interactive and likely to give you all the answers you need.

In the meantime, here’s the unboxing and overview video. I’ve got no comments at the moment apart from saying that the start-up sequence was smooth and that I’m a little bit underwhelmed by the pen input. Annotations seem OK but this is nothing that competes with the pen input capabilities of Windows 7, even on mobile PC devices.

    I also want to know if notes can be done over that sample PDF I emailed you. And if text can be highlighted with the Magic Pen too.

    I know that there isn’t a Magic Pen-enabled PDF viewer but i’m going to see what I can do now for you.

    Chippy, do you have a JustinTV or similar account that you will be using for the live review? I would like to follow it, if at all possible.

    Thanks for your hard work.
