HTC Flyer 7-inch Tablet to "fly" into TELUS
Unfortunately the HTC Flyer will only be running Android 2.4 (a tweaked version of 2.3) and not the fabled Android 3.0 Honeycomb that is optimized for tablets. This is somewhat an odd move by TELUS as they decided to pass on the Samsung Galaxy Tab, a similar tablet in hardware and form factor, because the upgrade path was uncertain and Google had stated that 2.1 (as well as 2.2) weren't made for tablet. While Android 2.3 wasn't stated to be optimized for tablets either, I guess Gingerbread was good enough for TELUS to jump aboard the Tablet craze.
Check out the video after the break.
