Reviews for the HTC Flyer 7-Zoll WiFi + 3G

84% Review HTC Flyer 7 inch WiFi+3G Tablet/MID | Notebookcheck
I believe I can fly. It's finally here – the tablet from HTC. The new device is called Flyer and has a 7 inch touchscreen that can display a resolution of 1024x600 pixels. A single core CPU with a system clock of 1.5 GHz does its work inside. Can the HTC Flyer for a high price of 670 euros stand up to the competition?

Although SenseUI works really well on the HTC Flyer, you start notifcing issues once you step out of it and into other applications that are not necessarily designed for a bigger screen. Keep in mind that Android 2.x is mostly used for Smartphone with 3.x-4.x” screens and application developers design their apps accordingly. Thus you will find quite a few apps that just don’t look right or are not tablet optimized- exactly the same issue that Samsung’s 7” Tab suffered from last year. Until the Flyer transitions into Honeycomb or Android 2.x and 3.x are merged, you will face this issue.

The Flyer is HTC's first venture into the tablet space and I had high hopes for this as it looked like a winner right from the start, well at least on paper. If I may quote Morpheus from the Matrix, "Everyone falls the first time" , this is exactly what has happened with HTC's Flyer. There's no denying the fact that the Flyer is built well enough to rival the iPad. The finish and attention to detail is impeccable and HTC gets full points for that. The UI is another area where it excels, the interface is slick and fast and even though Sense is not designed for tablets, they've done a pretty good job of porting it to the larger screen. There's also a whole bunch of multimedia and productivity apps built right in. Finally, the digital pen support is a novel idea and while it seems like a gimmick at times, some people may find it very useful.

Still, at the time of writing there are no 7in Android 3 tablets on sale, so if the small size is important, the HTC Flyer will be a good choice, especially as it's on sale for £480 online.

The Flyer is a capable tablet that offers some nifty features but its stratospheric pricing makes it hard to justify over Honeycomb devices.

The Flyer is a decent Tablet and stands out because it allows you to take notes and draw on it using the Pen. It is also an excellent ­communication tool. However, HTC needs to improve on the Notes App to be really taken seriously.

At present, RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook is the most suitable for business users looking for a tablet, but if you can't live without the note-taking pen interface, the Flyer is no doubt the right hardware for you.

HTC Flyer tablet review

Anyway, setting that aside for the moment, here’s the deal: The HTC Flyer is a great device that runs the risk of being outdated quickly and which might cost more money than it’s worth. But that’s arguably true of many of the Android tablets available today, so I’m not sure I’d hold either point against HTC.

In a nutshell, very good but very expensive sums up the Flyer. HTC clearly thinks it can now charge a premium for its devices and adapter cables – a policy I take issue with no matter what the brand or logo. Still, if you have the money you won’t be disappointed. If you don’t have the money wait for a few months until the 10in HTC Puccini tablet arrives – I’m betting the price of the Flyer will float gently earthwards then.

The HTC Flyer is an interesting and largely successful attempt at a 7in Android tablet, but it needs Android 3.0 to unlock its potential. A better-suited operating system and a more responsive stylus won’t fix the bigger problem though - the Flyer really needs to cost less than the iPad 2, not more.

The HTC Flyer has lived up to our expectations in terms of the experience it delivers. It's beautifully made, easy to use, fast, and that stylus is great. However, not only do we have reservations about the current and long term app support but currently it's severely overpriced. Until it drops well below the £500 mark, it's not the tablet we'd go for.

All this pales into insignificance next to the fattest fly in the ointment, however – the Flyer’s frankly ludicrous price. The 16GB version will set you back £480 and the 32GB £600, prices that hover around the level of a 3G iPad 2 and exceed the Galaxy Tab by a long, long distance. Perhaps if the price had been £100 lower we’d have been able to give this tablet the thumbs up; as it is, though, it’s a tough, tough sell.

The HTC Flyer is a strange tablet. It's screen-size at 7-inches means it's easily one of the most portable tablets around and it's loaded with the fantastic HTC Sense, but it comes running Gingerbread and not Honeycomb.

Have a look below and above at the close-up photos, feel the love in the hands-on videos from both yours truly and Chris Davies from his review of the 3G Euro edition. If you’ve still got any questions about this tablet, feel free to ask them below and I’ll do my best to answer them/ run some tests for you. Further coverage of this device will be happening over on Android Community for at least another week or two before we get a slightly different version, if you know what I mean.

Even as it stands, though, there’s a lot to like about the Flyer. The 7-inch size fits just as nicely between smartphones and 10-inch tablets in terms of functionality as it does in the hand, and the stylus adds a new layer of possibilities of which HTC Notes only scratches the surface. It’s likely to remain a niche model for the moment, but those who find the iPad’s interface more like finger-painting than fine-art will find plenty of appeal in the HTC Flyer.
