Being an early adopter has its risks and advantages, and if you happen to be one of the first few to fly with the discontinued HTC Flyer, then surely you might have suffered from a certain degree of buyer’s remorse. After all, the iPad from Apple has proved to be the “title bout” so to speak, and the HTC Flyer, being HTC’s first attempt in the tablet world, failed to dent the iPad’s armor in any way. Well, at least the Taiwanese company has not given up on the HTC Flyer just yet, where they have made good on their promise to deliver Android 3.2 Honeycomb to the Wi-Fi only Flyer model.
Just to recap, Android 3.x Honeycomb is a tablet-centric operating system from Google, and it will certainly make any tablet easier and more intuitive to use (of course, this is also relatively speaking since there might be pockets of “resistance” here and there with any change) compared to relying on Android 2.2 Froyo or Android 2.3 Gingerbread. According to some users who have already installed the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update, they have noticed their Flyer being a whole lot more responsive, not to mention the disappearance of the wallpaper lag. There are also some folks out there who claim that the US model of the 3G-capable HTC Flyer has also started to receive the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update – looks like Santa ain’t done with his gift giving spree just yet.
