Yes, it’s just and eyes-on. HTC employees were the only ones allowed to handle and demo the newly minted, 7-inch Android tablet, so we couldn’t develop as much of an opinion about the device as we would have liked. For its inaugural tablet, the Taiwanese OEM decided to buck the dual-core craze and stick with a single-core, 1.5GHz chip. Watching HTC buzz around on the device seemed to indicate that the tablet’s engine is more than capable of keeping up with your demands. A differentiating factor for the Flyer is the fact that it ships with a stylus. We were shown a demo where tapping on the screen with the stylus immediately took a screen shot, from there you can use the pen to draw, annotate, and doodle on the captured image. We’re sure HTC will build more functionality into the stylus before launch and it was kind of fun to see a tablet go back to its roots. The device will be shipping in Q2 of 2011 globally. We’re off to get more goodies from MWC, hit the gallery up and let us know what you think!
