HTC takes a flyer on tablets

Scaled up Android smartphone ahoy

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

MWC 2011 HTC has entered the tablet game, announcing at Mobile World Congress a 7in, 1024 x 600 Android slate that will arrive in Q2.

Called the HTC Flyer, the tablet provides the customary features: 1.5GHz processor - dual- or single-core, HTC didn't say, so presumably the latter - 1GB of Ram and 32GB of storage.

For a gadget that looks so much like a scaled up smartphone, it's no surprise that Flyer has on-board dual-band HSPA 3G connectivity, plus 2.4GHz 802.11n and Bluetooth 3.0.

There's a 1.3Mp webcam and a 5Mp stills'n'video camera. Battery capacity runs to 4400mAh. There's a mini USB port.

HTC will be running its own smartphone-centric Sense UI on top of Android - version TBC - and equipping it with its own "digital ink" system, Scribe, which suggests an emphasis on stylus usage.

HTC also touted Watch, its upcoming movies-on-demand service offering "hundreds" of HD films from "major studios".

Flyer will be out in Q2, but HTC's not yet saying how much it'll cost. ®
