HTC Flyer now available in India, comes with HTC Watch, HTC Scribe and OnLive
HTC has finally launched its very first Android tablet in the Indian market. The HTC Flyer tablet runs Android 2.4 and is powered by a 1.5GHz processor. The tablet supports WiFi as well as 3G connectivity. It sports a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera and a 5 megapixel rear camera.
The Flyer also includes a tablet optimized version of the famous HTC Sense UI, and is bundled with a few other exciting services like the HTC Watch, HTC Scribe and OnLive. HTC Watch will allow users to stream HD quality videos directly to their tablet device. HTC Scribe is the capacitive stylus technology supported technology from HTC. Finally, OnLive is a cloud based gaming service which brings some interesting games to the device.
The hardware on the HTC Flyer is decent, yet not up to the mark to compete with the newly released Android tablets, or even RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook and Apple’s iPad 2. To our disappointment the tablet is officially priced at 39,890 INR and it seems a lot more expensive than what we had earlier speculated. However, it is noteworthy that the tablet will introduce a unique experience when compared to various stock Honeycomb-based tablet devices available in the market.
