MWC 2011: 7-inch HTC Flyer Tablet has 1.5GHz CPU

Features revised HTC Sense UI, 32GB onboard storage and a 5 megapixel camera at back

At the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2011, HTC Corp. is expected to announce a much rumoured tablet computer. Branded as HTC Flyer, the tablet will have 7-inch touchscreen display and a 5 megapixel camera at the back as reported  by Seattle Times. Packing 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, HTC Flyer is packed in aluminium housing. Sporting new HTC Sense UI, the Flyer tablet will run Google Android 2.4 update and is upgradable to Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

HTC Flyer appears to be a real competitor of Samsung Galaxy Tab. Bearing a 7-inch display that supports 1024x600 pixel resolution, Flyer houses 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The Flyer comes with 32GB on-board storage and will feature HSPA+ network support.

Jason Mackenzie, president of HTC North America said that Flyer will also have stylus as it is more polite way of taking notes than typing on the tablet or laptop during a meeting.

HTC Flyer will feature a revised version of HTC Sense user interface that is likely to be meant for tablets only just like Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Flyer has a 5 megapixel camera at the back and a 1.3 megapixel camera in the front for video conferencing.

For the U.S. region HTC would be offering Flyer with OnLive games streaming service preloaded on it. OnLive lets you stream and play all latest as well as popular games from the cloud servers with PC level graphics. HTC will announce the pricing and availability of Flyer with OnLive bundle later this year.


The Flyer tablet will also feature HTC's new video download service called Watch and as of now, we don't know if it would be limited just to U.S. or certain other regions only. The company was also rumoured to introduce Android Honeycomb based tablets later this year. HTC Flyer would be available in March this year.

Nokia E7 gets listed for a Whopping Rs. 30,000

Back in December we reported that Nokia E7, which was suppose to ship in January 2011, has been held back for uncertain reasons. Now, the first Symbian^3 running E-Series smartphone - Nokia E7 gets listed on India's online retailer site with arrival hinted as Coming Soon. Though its arrival period is uncertain, this top of the line E-series smartphone would be available at an approximate cost of Rs. 30,000.

From the buzz we heard, the Finnish handset maker will hold a pompous launch event for this business segment friendly smartphone. Closely similar to Nokia N8, the E7 features a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard that has nicely laid out keys. But is it actually comfortable for typing? We'll come to know that only after using it.

Rumor: iPhone 5 to feature A5 processor, iPad 2 stays with A4

The oft-quoted DigiTimes, a Taiwanese tech industry favorite publication, has revealed that Apple is outsourcing the production of its A5 processor chip, which many expect will be based on the ARM Cortex A9 design and used in the forthcoming iPhone 5, to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.
AppleInsider reports that Apple's A4 chip is currently produced by Samsung Electronics, but the move to Taiwan Semiconductor for production of the A5 chip is because of Samsung's inability to keep up with Apple's supply demands.
This rumor follows many regarding Apple's iPhone lineup, including a larger, 4-inch screen and an iPhone Nano.
The DigiTimes report also speculates that the iPad 2 will retain use of the current A4 chip, though it will be an
enhanced version of it. The iPhone 5 will be the first to sport the new A5 chip.
What's on your wish list of hardware features for iPhone 5 and iPad 2? Let me know in the comments!
