US Cellular’s HTC Flyer gets updated to Android Honeycomb

US Cellular’s version of the HTC Flyer tablet has received a big software update. What did you say? Is it to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean? You’re funny. Oh, but you go on and ask whether it’s at least to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich? You’re hilarious.

No, friends, HTC’s first Android tablet is now on Honeycomb. The rather buggy (and rushed) first attempt by Google to get tablet software right. The even funnier thing is that this update has been out for HTC Flyer units not sold by US Cellular for about seven months now.

That’s what you get for buying your tablet from your carrier. A whole lot of waiting, followed by updates to ancient software versions.

The update isn’t even going to be available over-the-air, so you’ll need to download it from this website and then get it onto your tablet using a Windows computer. But hey, it’s totally worth it. I mean, you’ll be running software that was fully recent 17 months ago. Thank HTC and US Cellular for that, will you?
