HTC Flyer To Get Android Honeycomb “Shortly After Launch”
By on April 25th, 2011

Back in February, HTC announced the much-awaited HTC Flyer tablet at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2011 in Barcelona. HTC Flyer is the company’s first tablet device. Most of the tablets announced this year runs on the latest Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) Operating System, but the HTC Flyer runs on the old Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS. Even though, it is powered by the 1.5 GHz processor, why would anyone go ahead and buy a device with outdated operating system?

To solve this problem, HTC has recently mentioned in a tweet that, the HTC Flyer will get the Android 3.0 Honeycomb update shortly after launch. This is definitely a great news for those, who are planning to buy this device, since they won’t have to wait much longer for the Android Honeycomb update.
