The HTC Flyer – which still hasn’t hit shelves, despite being unveiled at February’s Mobile World Congress – initially raised more than a few eyebrows. In a good way. Alas, as time wore on, those eyebrows were emphatically lowered, as we learned that the HTC Flyer would cost a freakin’ fortune.
HTC also confused us by choosing to ship the Flyer with Gingerbread instead of Honeycomb. What the…? But don’t give up just yet, HTC faithful. Further details of a new tablet are emerging, and it sounds like quite the powerhouse.
HTC’s Puccini tablet has fairly dramatic specs, including a 10in display with 1280x800 resolution (same as the Motorola Xoom), Honeycomb (Android 3.0), and – most excitingly – a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
The chip is said to have 5x the performance of the original Snapdragon and 4x the graphical performance, and all while using 75% less power. Cripes.
