HTC Flyer available to order

Internet based mobile phone and device retailer Clove has enabled preordering for the HTC Flyer Android tablet, with a price attached of £600 and an arrival date of mid-April.

The Flyer is HTC's first ever tablet and runs from a 7-inch 1024×600 TFT screen, with a 1.5GHz processor and a 5 megapixel camera, 32GB of internal storage with the Google mobile OS and the HTC Sense overlay.

HTC's Flyer has already had its fair share of critics, as the device will arrive running Android 'Froyo' 2.2 and not Android 'Honeycomb' 3.0 - which is specifically geared up for tablet devices.

HTC are thought of as leaders in the mobile industry appear to have let this one slip, whilst the likes of Motorola could very well be the first company with a Honeycomb based tablet that could steal the Flyer's limelight.

HTC were also missing of a dual-core offering at Mobile World Congress, where their competition arrived at the show with those powerful processor phones.

One Mobile Ring caught up with HTC in Barcelona and have publishing a walk through images of the Flyer , seen here, along with a hands-on video walk through - to be viewed here.
