HTC Flyer: Android 3.0 Honeycomb Release Date Update

By Alan Ng - Apr 3, 2011

We have some good news for those of you planning to pick up the HTC Flyer tablet later on this year, as HTC has once again confirmed that the device will be receiving an update to Android 3.0 Honeycomb after release – we have an update on that for you.

When asked a direct question on Twitter if the Flyer would be getting the Honeycomb update or not, HTC replied with the following answer, as reported from Engadget:

”We will be offering a Honeycomb upgrade when it’s made available. What feature are you most excited about?”

Obviously, it would have been better if they gave us an actual indication when the update will be coming out, but at least it puts potential Flyer owner’s minds at ease knowing that the device which ships with Gingerbread will be upgraded soon after release. It will be pretty disasterous if they don’t get Honeycomb out during Summer at least, so we’re predicting that you won’t have to wait to long for it.

Who is planning to get a Flyer or EVO View 4G (Sprint’s version) from HTC? Are you concerned that it ‘only’ comes with a single-core 1.5Ghz processor, unlike the rest of the tablet competition which ships with a 1Ghz dual core processor at least? Despite that unusual processor spec, the device does look pretty promising we have to say.

    For me, I think this product is pretty good enough. I don't know what is HTC means but it seems that they have a good product.

    It is being released with 2.3 and will be updated to 3.0

    You need to get your facts straight or why even bother with an article like this?

  • The Nexus One isn’t made by Samsung, it’s a HTC handset.
    The next Google phone, which will be made by Samsung, is the Nexus S, but it hasn’t been released yet
