Overview of the HTC Flyer - 16GB
A sleek 7 inch touchscreen Android tablet PC, the HTC Flyer is the first tablet PC from the respected smartphone manufacturer.
With a sleek aluminium body the HTC Flyer has a solid look and feel, but also makes the device look stylish and differentiates it from the competition.
Weighing just 415g,this tablet is something that you can comfortably carry around with you, further helped by the dimensions – it is actually possible to put the Flyer in a jacket or trouser pocket – ideal for portability!
The 1.5GHz processor is very powerful and more than capable of handling all the tasks that you may need the Flyer to do. Whether it be emails, web browsing, document editing, video playback or game playing, the HTC Flyer has the processing power and on board memory to give you an experience like no other.
16GB of on board memory should,for most users, be adequate storage space for applications and other media such as music and video. However, if you need more the MicroSDHC memory card slot, provides you with the ability to expand this even further. Put in a 32GB microSDHC memory card (sold separately) and you have 48GB of storage!
As you would expect WiFi is included on the device with the latest N standard for super fast wireless browsing speeds.
Further, of course, this is an Android tablet PC, so it will sync with your Google account. Emails, contacts and calendars. They will all sync and connect with the cloud.
HTC have included their HTC Sense for tablet software on the Flyer, which customises the user experience to provide a more productive and powerful interface for the user. A carousel of widgets puts the most important content right in front of you.
Built into the HTC Flyer is HTC Scribe technology which provodes the ability to accept input via a stylus or digital pen. Such a feature means you can use the Flyer as if it were a normal notepad – except everything will be stored digitally, not something many other tablets can do! Such a feature demonstrates how the Flyer could easily fit into personal and business scenarios. Whether it be for making notes in a meeting, getting customers to sign for delivery of something, the Scribe technology gives a world of opportunities. What good would this technology be without a digital pen? Well thankfully a HTC digitial pen/stylus is included.
For the ‘power user’ 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 Evernote, the world-leading notes application and service. If you spend half your working day in a meeting of some form, you can probably see the benefit of this.
The HTC Flyer tablet premieres HTC Watch, HTC's new video download service. This service enables low-cost on-demand progressive downloading of hundreds of High-Definition movies from major studios. Perfect for those movie fans, or those who could benefit from something to watch when on a trip.
As if the HTC Flyer feature list was not extensive enough, gaming is taken 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 you play top video games on your television without the need to buy expensive gaming hardware or software. When integrated fully, the OnLive service will enable you to pipe the OnLive service through the HTC Flyer tablet's broadband wirelessly to your television set, or of course played directly on the tablet.
A powerful package for business or personal use .
