For the most part of this list, the 10.1-inch tablets dominate the scene. With that said, we have the HTC Flyer that comes in at 7 inches. Add to that the fact that it only has a single 1.5 GHz core and is running on Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. So how will the Flyer compete with these in mind? Well HTC has the answer in the Sense UI. It has been the working formula for the company’s mobile phone releases and they decided to stick it in the Flyer as well. The tablet performs better with the Magic Pen accessory as it will make things easier, as well as bring out more of the Sense UI’s functions. The only drawback to this setup is their choice to place a single core processor instead of two cores like the rest of the competition. Needless to say, if you don’t want too much departure from your mobile phone-based functions, then you might enjoy the Flyer.
