As previously reported, the HTC Flyer is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm chip along 1GB of RAM and 32GB of flash storage. It features a 1024 x 600 display resolution, an aluminum construction, 5MP camera on the back, 1.3MP front-facing camera for video conferencing, HSPA+ support, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. A refreshed version of the company's Sense UI will run on top to optimize the software for tablet use, and HTC is including a pressure-sensitive stylus with a companion app that supports sketching, handwritten text and annotation of imported photos and clippings.
The tablet is expected to start shipping in early May, contract-free and SIM-unlocked. The price for the Wi-Fi only model hasn't been announced yet nor has an approximate date for a U.S. launch. When that happens buyers are in for an extra goodie, as HTC will be offering the Flyer in the U.S. with OnLive's cloud-based gaming service preloaded on it.
