HTC Flyer's specs are confirmed, 1GB of RAM and Gingerbread under the hood
Last night we reported about leaked specs for the HTC Flyer. The first of three expected tablets coming from the Taiwanese based firm is obviously a challenger to the Samsung Galaxy Tab with a similar 7 inch tablet and resolution of 1024 x 600. These and other specifications that we told you about have now been confirmed by a new tipster in contact with Amobil, the source for our story last night.

Not only has this new tipster seconded the numbers passed along yesterday, he has also filled in some of the gaps that were missing. For example, it now appears that the tablet will be launched with Android 2.3 aboard. There is no word on whether or not there will be an upgrade to Honeycomb, but it seems that getting the Flyer out fast was more important to HTC than waiting for Android 3.0 to be ready for the manufacturer's use. Without a OS optimized for tablets, HTC has added a version of its Sense UI which is supposed to help Android 2.3 work better on a bigger screen rather than on a phone.

Other specs missing from Monday night's story that we can now fill in include the 4GB ROM and 1 GB RAM that will be under the Flyer's hood. The battery is supposed to be a very powerful cell and while the display is capacitive, the tablet will come with a stylus.

Speculation on the release of the HTC Flyer centers on the March/April time period and no pricing information has been revealed.

Probably the biggest competitor to the iPad but I'm not sure whether it will beat or even come close to the iPad.

I can't wait to see a WP7 tablet!

Xoom was killed by Google itself giving its first tablet to Motorola, who don't have competitive and software skills @ all.
