HTC Flyer to Get Android 3.0 Honeycomb Update

HTC was one of the last major Android device manufacturers to announce an Android tablet. It was a bit late, compared to Samsung, Motorola and LG. But at MWC 2011, it finally announced its first Android tablet – the HTC Flyer.

While it had superb hardware specifications, it came with Android Gingerbread, which is actually meant for Android smartphones, not tablets. Most of the other tablets will come with Android 3.0 Honeycomb, but HTC hadn’t announced whether it will be bringing Android 3.0 Honeycomb to the Flyer.

Today, HTC has officially announced that it will be offering an upgrade to Honeycomb for the HTC Flyer, in reply to a query by @GeekHangover.

“@Geekhangover We will be offering a Honeycomb upgrade when it’s made available. What feature are you most excited about?”

The HTC Flyer has a 7 inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It comes with a 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB RAM. It also has 32 GB internal storage.

It will come with a 5 MP camera and has everything in terms of connectivity – Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and HSPA connectivity.

It currently comes with Android Gingerbread with the HTC Sense UI. It is powered by a 4000 mAh battery. Check out the Complete Specifications of HTC Flyer Tablet.
