HTC Flyer Honeycomb screenshots emerge

The first pictures have emerged online of the HTC Flyer running Honeycomb 3.2 and Sense 1.1 for Tablet.


The screenshots come courtesy of a leaked beta version of the Honeycomb ROM, which MoDaCao has installed on the Flyer.

From the pictures we’ve seen it’s unmistakably HTC Sense: with the four icons you can drag onto the lock screen, but a new addition is the Honeycomb status bar along the bottom, comeplete with the Home, Back and Applications buttons.

The pen can apparently be used throughout the entire device, instead of just taking notes and screenshots. which means you can use it stylus-style to navigate web pages.

The Flyer is HTC’s first foray into the tablet market (read our HTC Flyer review here) where the 7-inch tablet instantly created it’s own niche.

Build quality is excellent and it included features like HTC Watch and a stylus for writing notes which synched with Evernote in the Cloud. However one of the main criticisms was that it ran Android 2.3 Gingerbread, in contrast to tablets like the Asus EeePad Transformer, which ran Honeycomb.


If you’re brave enough to download the beta, let us know what you think, although we’d advise waiting for the official version to be released
