Back in February, when HTC announced the Flyer – its first Android tablet – I was surprised to find out that it was running Android 2.4, not Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The tablet still runs Gingerbread, and it will be released with this version of Google’s OS.
DigiTimes has it that the Android 2.4 Flyer may be releases as soon as this month, or in early April – albeit only “in small volumes” for the beginning.
The Taiwanese website also reports that HTC plans to introduce two new Flyer tablets in mid-2011.
Unlike the current model (pictured above), the new Flyers will come with Android 3.0 Gingerbread. There are no other details on the upcoming HTC tablets, but I assume at least one of them will have a screen larger than 7 inches (this way, it will definitely be different from the first Flyer).
