HTC rumored to be working on a new 7-inch HTC Flyer 2
Fans of the HTC EVO View 4G or the HTC Flyer might be very interested to hear that HTC is said to be working on a follow-up, second generation Flyer. The Flyer 2 (since we don’t yet know what else to call it) is rumored to sport 7-inch screen – just like the original – with a resolution of 1280 x 768. Interestingly, it will also have the same anodized aluminum body that the HTC One S enjoys (you can read my full review of the One S here).
Other specs include a 28nm Snapdragon S4 chip, Jelly Bean, a 3MP rear camera, and a 1MP front facing camera. It also comes in a very sleek 0.28-inches (7.1mm) thin frame.
It’s unknown at this point whether the tablet will feature a stylus a la the original HTC Flyer, along with stylus-optimized software. Pricing is also unknown, but if these specs turn out to be true, it looks like HTC will definitely be trying to compete in the entry-level tablet market, alongside proven players like the Google Nexus 7 or the upcoming Amazon Kindle Fire HD. Hopefully we’ll know more after September 19.
In the meantime, let us know: would you be interested in a mid-range, more reasonably-priced HTC tablet? Or has HTC’s recent track record with software updates left a sour taste in your mouth?[Phone Arena]
