Encased in a sleek aluminum unibody, the HTC Flyer tablet exudes the
iconic style-and-build-quality HTC is known for. It is also
ultra-light, weighing as little as a paperback book, and compact enough
to fit in a jacket pocket only. With a seven-inch display, lightning
fast 1.5Ghz processor and high-speed HSPA wireless capabilities, the
HTC Flyer tablet is perfect for those who have been waiting for a
tablet that is both compact and powerful.
HTC Sense for Tablet
HTC Sense revolutionized smartphones by placing the person at the
center of the experience. HTC Flyer’s tablet-focused HTC Sense
experience focuses on surprising and delighting people with its
gorgeous 3D home screen. A unique carousel of widgets puts a user’s
most important content and information at the visual center of the
experience. The HTC Flyer tablet also offers uncompromised Web browsing
with Adobe Flash and HTML 5.
HTC Scribe Technology
Touch interaction lights up the HTC Flyer tablet experience, but it
also offers a groundbreaking pen experience. With the new HTC Scribe
Technology on the HTC Flyer tablet, people can rediscover the natural
act of writing. HTC Scribe Technology introduces a wave of integrated
digital ink innovations that make it easy and natural to take notes,
sign contracts, draw pictures, or even write on a web page or photo.
HTC Scribe Technology on the HTC Flyer tablet transforms traditional
note-taking into smart note-taking by integrating natural onscreen
writing with thoughtful and integrated innovations. 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. In an industry first, the HTC Flyer tablet also
features built-in synchronization with Evernoteä, the world-leading
notes application and service.

service. The HTC Watch service enables low-cost on-demand progressive
downloading movies from major studios. The intuitive, natural design of
the HTC Watch service makes it easy to find the latest movie and video
content, while advanced technology on the back-end enables instant
playback over the HTC Flyer tablet’s high-speed wireless connection.
HTC Watch is a global service that will be launched initially in the
UK, the US and Taiwan, and then progressively in other countries around
