Reviewing HTC Flyer - the tablet with HTC Sense

The Pros:
  • Aluminum unibody design with touch and pen interaction make HTC Flyer unique.
  • First tablet with HTC Watch™ video service, HTC Scribe™ Technology and OnLive® cloud gamin

HTC Flyer blends HTC’s trademark design language with an all-new HTC Sense user experience that has been reimagined for the tablets. Using an intuitive and innovative approach to tablets, HTC Flyer combines natural touch and pen interaction. HTC also announced HTC Watch, a new connected video service that debuted on HTC Flyer tablet, and collaborates with OnLive, Inc. to launch the first cloud-based mobile gaming service on a tablet.
Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation, said these words on the launch of HTC Flyer:

 “Clearly, smartphones have transformed our lives but as we observed how people use smartphones, computers and other technologies, we saw an opportunity to create a tablet experience that is different, more personal and productive. We are progressing down a path as an industry when people will no longer be in a single device paradigm, but have multiple wireless devices for different needs; this is the direction we are moving.” 

The Design:

Encased in a sleek aluminum unibody, the HTC Flyer tablet exudes the iconic style and build quality HTC is known for. It is also ultra-light, weighing as little as a paperback book, and compact enough to fit in a jacket pocket only. With a seven-inch display, lightning fast 1.5Ghz processor and high-speed HSPA+ wireless capabilities, the HTC Flyer tablet is perfect for those who have been waiting for a tablet that is both compact and powerful and finally the operating system installed by default is Android 2.3.4.

Here is a mini list of design features of HTC Flyer:

The pen is mightier

Fact: Your finger is not a pen. So why do so many tablets treat it as one? On the HTC Flyer with HTC Scribe Technology™ and the HTC Scribe™ digital pen accessory, you’re able to take notes that sync with a recording of your meeting, highlight an important passage of an e-book or document, and even doodle on a picture or create your own.

Sync your ink

Capturing ideas is great. Being able to access and search those ideas from anywhere is way better. With the HTC Flyer, all of your notes and annotations are instantly saved to your Evernote account.

Your never-ending journal

With an expandable memory slot, you’ll run out of ideas before you run out of places to keep them.

Life on the go

You know life happens on both sides of the screen. That’s why we built a 5 MP camera into the back of the HTC Flyer for capturing your vision the world in HD. And a front-facing camera for capturing your expressions in video chat.

Small. But not small

At 7”, it’s small enough to fit in your pocket, but with Android 2.3, HTC Sense™ that has been optimized for your tablet, and a 1.5GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon® processor, it won’t be spending much time there.

HTC Flyer's Unique Features:

HTC Sense for Tablet

HTC Sense revolutionized smartphones by placing the person at the center of the experience. HTC Flyer’s tablet-focused HTC Sense experience focuses on surprising and delighting people with its gorgeous 3D home screen. A unique carousel of widgets puts a user’s most important content and information at the visual center of the experience. The HTC Flyer tablet also offers uncompromised Web browsing with Flash 10 and HTML 5.

HTC Scribe Technology
Touch interaction lights up the HTC Flyer tablet experience, but it also offers a groundbreaking pen experience. With the new HTC Scribe Technology on the HTC Flyer tablet, people can rediscover the natural act of writing. HTC Scribe Technology introduces a wave of integrated digital ink innovations that make it easy and natural to take notes, sign contracts, draw pictures, or even write on a web page or photo.
HTC Scribe Technology on the HTC Flyer tablet transforms traditional note-taking into smart note-taking by integrating natural onscreen writing with thoughtful and integrated innovations. A feature called Timemark enables you to capture the audio of a meeting in line with your written notes, so tapping on a word in your notes instantly takes you to that exact place in time in the audio recording of the meeting. Notes are also integrated with the calendar so when there is an appointment reminder you are automatically prompted with an opportunity to begin a new note or in the case of recurring meetings, to continue where the last meeting left off. In an industry first, the HTC Flyer tablet also features built-in synchronization with EvernoteTM, the world-leading notes application and service.

Streaming Mobile Movies with HTC Watch

The HTC Flyer tablet premieres HTC Watch, HTC’s new video download service. The HTC Watch service enables low-cost on-demand progressive downloading of hundreds of High-Definition movies from major studios. The intuitive, natural design of the HTC Watch service makes it easy to find the latest movie and video content, while advanced technology on the back-end enables instant playback over the HTC Flyer tablet’s high-speed wireless connection.

Mobile Cloud Gaming with OnLive

HTC takes mobile gaming to an entirely new level by being the first mobile device in the world to integrate OnLive Inc.’s revolutionary cloud-based gaming service. OnLive is leading in the home gaming market by letting people play top video games on their televisions and computers without the need to buy expensive gaming hardware or software. When integrated fully, the OnLive service will enable customers to pipe the OnLive service through the HTC Flyer tablet’s broadband wireless to their television sets, or let them play directly on the tablet. When integrated on the HTC Flyer tablet, people can play a variety of games, including hits like Assassin’s Creed BrotherhoodTM, NBA 2K11 and Lego Harry Potter™.
