Product Description

A good idea can take you anywhere. So we made a tablet that does the same. The pen is mightier Fact: Your finger is not a pen. So why do so many tablets treat it as one? On the HTC Flyer with HTC Scribe TechnologyTM and the HTC ScribeTM digital pen accessory, you're able to take notes that sync with a recording of your meeting, highlight an important passage of an e-book or document, and even doodle on a picture or create your own. Sync your ink Capturing ideas is great. Being able to access and search those ideas from anywhere is way better. With the HTC Flyer, all of your notes and annotations are instantly saved to your Evernote account. Your never-ending journal With an expandable memory slot, you'll run out of ideas before you run out of places to keep them. Life on the go You know life happens on both sides of the screen. That's why we built a 5 MP camera into the back of the HTC Flyer for capturing your vision the world in HD. And a front-facing camera for capturing your expressions in video chat. Small. But not small At 7", it's small enough to fit in your pocket, but with Android 2.3, HTC SenseTM that has been optimized for your tablet, and a 1.5GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon® processor, it won't be spending much time there.

There are many specifications-based reviews out there on the Flyer, so I won't repeat those, and instead base this write-up off of my experience with HTC's device over the last few weeks. I have to start this review by saying that I've been a tablet PC user for years, and have found many recreational and business related uses for computers that have active pen input. But even my current tablet PC, an HP Touchsmart, can get tiresome to carry around all the time. I work with kids, and needed a backup device that was small, quick to turn on, and could be loaded with fun activities for children. That's where the Android tablets come in. I rooted a couple of Nookcolors, and instantly fell in love with the 7" form factor. So when I learned that HTC was going to be releasing a 7" tablet with some kind of active stylus, it sounded like the best of both worlds (small android tablet with pen input), and I knew I had to check it out.

I have to say that when most people think of a stylus, they think of that plastic stick that they used to poke their old palm pilots with. That is NOT what this is, nor is it intended as a replacement for touch input. This pen input is intended as a replacement for pen and paper, as you might use when you draw or take handwritten notes. When you're talking about active pen input, you're looking for 3 things: Precision, pressure sensitivity, and palm rejection. I hate to be this blunt, but if you can't view a stylus as being anything other than that dead plastic stick from the old days of resistive screens, then this type of device just simply isn't for you.

When I learned that the Flyer used N-Trig technology instead of the Wacom digitizers I'm used to, I was initially hesitant.

I spent a long time researching what kind of tablet to invest in before going back off to college (Illinois State). I chose the HTC Flyer for a number of reasons:

1. (The Most Important Reason) The stylus! This is the only (widely available) device/tablet to fully incorporate an "active digitizer." Unlike the iPhone/iPad/Samsung Galxay/Asus Tablets/etc. The HTC Flyer is able to recognize where the stylus is on the screen RATHER THAN ONLY creating an electromagnetic field under the glass and approximating the position of input based on where the contact is made, therefore, where the EM field is disrupted, like the previously stated devices do.

I have already sat through hour+ long courses and found taking notes on the device to be very easy with a small amount of learning curve.

2. Small. Although i would have purchased a 10.1" version (If HTC made one) but i have found the size to be "just right." Small enough to throw in your backpack but large and solid enough to hold for extended periods of timing while note taking, or reading texts. Its also just the right size for me to be able to hold it in Portrait position and type quite efficiently with the keyboard.

In landscape mode typing can be a headache at first so i recommend downloading, from the market, a keyboard called "Thumb Keyboard," which splits the keyboard in half, moving the keys in reach for either thumb.

3. My bias towards HTC: I have had the HTC Incredible (Phone) for almost a year now and haven't had a single problem with it. HTC is a reliable company who builds reliable products.

4. Battery: Not really a deciding factor when i was buying the device but i use it heavily and it lasts around 8-10 hours. I charge it maybe once a day.

Just some quick disclaimers prior to starting this review. I am writing this as a tech enthusiast and I will have to admit that HTC is one of my favorite gadget manufacturers. My primary table is the 1st gen iPad and I bought the Flyer because I was intrigued by the Scribe (pen) integration. So here we go:

Hardware:
This is a 7 inch table with a single-core 1.5Ghz Qualcomm chip processor (more on this later) and aluminum uni-body design. What does it mean to be uni-body? Basically HTC took one piece of aluminum and sculpted it into the tablet's chassis. With the exception of the 2 plastic covers at the top and bottom of the tablet, everything on here is pretty much glass and aluminum. When holding in the hand, the Flyer feels great. There is a distinct solid feel to it and a notable weight. The weight doesn't make the tablet feel heavy, instead it gives you the feeling of holding something of quality. I recall reading somewhere that the glass on the Flyer is made of Gorilla Glass, however, a quick stop on Corning's site and you may notice the Flyer is not listed on their product sheet. With this said, I know that due to partner agreements sometimes Corning is not able to list specific products on their site. So as of this writing I cannot confirm whether or not this is Gorilla glass but I can say that the glass on here is very sturdy. After months of use (finger and pen) without a screen protector I have yet to notice any scratches or scuffs. My one grip with the glass is that there is a slight "stick" to it when you're using it with your finger, there were times when my finger skipped across the screen instead of sliding across. I assume that HTC put some special coating on the glass to give you a "writing on paper" feeling when using the scribe pen.
