A portable internet surfing device was a pretty innovative idea a few years back. Apart from smartphones having Internet connectivity supports, Netbooks grew into fame for their portability. But eventually Netbooks died out as well with the Tablet revolution.
Tablets are good replacements of Netbooks. The touchscreen display, the smaller dimensions and weight are all impressive features and advantages of tabs over Netbooks.
HTC Flyer – a sleek tablet with a 7 inch screen quickly became a favourite for HTC fans and others alike. The simple but sturdy tablet featured many useful attributes, but HTC Flyer didn’t support GSM voice communication. The 7 inch LCD capacitive multi touchscreen and the glossy silver body gave this tablet a sleek and stylish look matching the trend then.
The HTC Flyer is a great tablet with pretty cool specifications, but there are so many tablets with better specs. To impress consumers, the tablets need to be quite unique as well. HTC Flyer came into that category with its stylus support.
Running in Android v2.3.3 Gingerbread at the time of its launch, HTC Flyer soon got the Android v3.2 Honeycomb update soon. With its amazing battery efficiency and performance, HTC Flyer became more popular, eventually making it worthy of another update.
HTC finally decided to give the Flyer users good news with an Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Operating system update for the tablet. Although this hasn’t been officially confirmed, it is quite evident that this news is true as recently a customer service rep mentioned it in France.
HTC Flyer was already impressive with its original v2.3.3 Android Gingerbread version. It became cooler with its Honeycomb OS update. The camera specifications in Flyer offer users 720p HD video recording and video conferencing capabilities. HTC Flyer users would be glad to have a change in the OS and that too, to the ICS.
With an all new interface and lots of cool features, the Ice Cream Sandwich update is worth the wait. However, HTC hasn’t let out any details of when the update would be made official. But many reports claim that the ICS update would be out by the end of the first quarter of this year.
We will have to wait a couple of weeks to know more about the features coming with the update and then a few more weeks to get our hands on the update. Flyer users who are still using Gingerbread OS are advised to update it to Honeycomb as soon as possible in order to prepare the device for the upcoming ICS update.
