This HTC Flyer promo shows you how much more you can do with a stylus
The HTC Flyer might not have caught your eye, but that could be partly because of the eventual lack of Honeycomb and the stylus reminding you of times not so long past. But while other companies have gone in the way of mimicking the market leader, HTC has taken their time to give a smooth polish to its own HTC Sense interface and make a truly unique product.
The 7-inch Flyer has a neatly looking carousel allowing you to quickly access info on your homepage, but what seems truly exciting is the stylus input. You can only appreciate it if your work involves some drawing – a challenging task for every keyboard out there. While finger input might do the job, we haven't really seen many applications supporting it to the extent we are tosee in the Flyer. Coupled with the tablet's powerful 1.5GHz single-core chipset, this could bring a lot of new ideas. Check out the video below for some of them.

Friggin' finally! Someone makes a tablet with PEN, not some piece of crap stylus with a 1cm diameter tip.

The only thing great about this tablet is its pen.

I'm just going to wait and hope that Wacom comes up with a pressure sensitive tablet of their own.

You think they are going to develop a product and a UI of their own when all they do now is support other companies' products?

I don't think they need a platform/operating system of their own. But if Wacom were to work with a tablet manufacturer to make something like the Cintiq (which I'm sure I spelled wrong) in a smaller/afordable/portable format. I would be all up on that.
To me this seems like a step in that direction, but I'm not running out to buy the first tablet with a stylus that hits the market.

I wasn't convinced by your writing but the video made me want this thing. HTC seem to be pretty innovative cunning dark horses
