HTC Flyer Android 2.3 tablet coming in March, Honeycomb upgrade to be offered later
HTC’s first Android tablet may not be called HTC Scribe, as previously rumored, but HTC Flyer.
According to DigiTimes, the HTC Flyer tablet will start shipping in the US in March, coming with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board – the OS will be updated to Android 3.0 Honeycomb, as soon as this becomes available.
It’s said that the Flyer will be sold via an unknown US carrier. This might be AT&T, since Verizon will introduce the Motorola Xoom, T-Mobile announced the LG G-Slate, and Sprint readies the launch of a WiMax BlackBerry Playbook.

Starting the second quarter of 2011, the HTC Flyer will be released outside the US, too. Moreover, it seems that HTC plans to introduce two other tablets (based on Android 3.0 Honeycomb) sometime in June.
