HTC has just announced via a status update on Facebook that the company will start rolling out the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update for the GSM version of the Flyer, starting from today.
The Flyer was the first tablet from the Taiwanese manufacturer, and it is powered by a 1.5GHz single-core processor from Snapdragon. This 7-inch tablet has a resolution of 1024×600, and supports HTC’s Scrybe feature.
The HTC Flyer originally launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with an enhanced version of Sense UI running on top of it. The Honeycomb update for the Flyer brings with it some much needed enhancements including a tablet optimized UI and hardware accelerated UI. All the basic apps like Calendar, GMail, Contacts and Google Talk have also got a redesign and are much more polished and take advantage of the big screen. Unlike HTC’s Android 2.3 implementation, the Honeycomb update for the Flyer is pretty free from Sense based modifications.
HTC is first rolling out the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update for only the GSM version of the Flyer, which is available in Europe only. Wi-Fi only variants and Flyer owners in the United States need to wait for some more time before their tablet gets the Honeycomb update.
