Again. After Research in Motion with Blackberry Playbook, Samsung with Galaxy Tab, LG with LG G-Slate (we still not review about this Tablet from LG due to the User Manual that had “lack of content”), Asus with Eee Pad Transformer, Acer with Iconia Tab, and of course the iPad 2 by Apple. Now another vendor manufacturer also come with his Tablet: HTC ready with HTC Flyer Tablet.
Before we discuss a good point of features and also share the information regarding the specification of HTC Flyer, we would make a review on the “bad” side of this Tablet in comparison with other Tablet that already marketed. The Bad news is although this Tablet powered with Android OS, but it not a version that deliberately designed for Tablet – Android HoneyComb / Android 3.0. The HTC Flyer only used Android Gingerbread (Android Version 2.3.3 / 2.4). It seems this is the most “missing” Part on HTC Flyer.
There are two type of HTC Flyer that available in the market: HTC Flyer works with GSM 3G HSDPA upto 14.4 Mbps and HSUPA 5.76 Mbps plus Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and also the HTC Flyer that only uses Wi-Fi with no GSM Supports (SIM Card). You might knew that this Tablet from HTC is already released few weeks ago, but why we wrote this article and share the User Manual and Quick Start Guide quite late compare to its availability. It due to the PDF File of User Manual and QSG (eManual / electronic manual version) available on two days ago. This means that the UM /QSG released not at the same time when the Tablet was released. It also late.
