HTC Flyer tablet has 1.5Ghz processor, Android 2.4 HTC has shown off their Flyer tablet today, running on Android 2.4 with an updated HTC Sense UI and a very powerful 1.5Ghz processor.
The company did confirm the tablet will be upgradeable to Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the OS optimized for tablets, in the second quarter.

Featuring a 7-inch display, the tablet will be notably smaller than the upcoming Xoom and the Apple iPad, but directly rival the aging Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Because of the completely overhauled HTC Sense UI, the Flyer will have a 3D home screen of widgets, despite a lack of Honeycomb. The tablet will also include the ability to use touch gestures and HTC will provide a stylus to make use of the company's Scribe note-taking technology.

There is little to no information confirmed about Android 2.4, with most speculating that it adds dual-core support.

A single core tablet? Powerful? Is that meant to be irony?
