HTC Flyer Honeycomb update starts arriving today
The 7-inch HTC Flyer stands out with its interface optimized for work with a stylus, but since the device was released in May 2011, we’ve only been hearing promises for update to Honeycomb. Now, it’s finally here - the Wi-Fi version of the Flyer is starting to get Honeycomb 3.2 pushed to the device.

The initial reports are also pretty warm. Users say they’ve gotten rid of wallpaper lag, and the UI feels smooth, plus they get the bragging rights of full hardware acceleration with Honeyomb.

We, however, are more curious whether the HTC Flyer is getting updated to Ice Cream Sandwich. That’s one thing that’d make 2012 even better, right?

it's already been discontinued. It'll never be 199.99. The price has gone up on ebay and amazon since you can't buy it a best buy anymore

My Flyer is running great on Honeycomb! I like the O.S. I still have two issues with apps. NFL & NBA Mobile are not compatible with it. They would not work with Gingerbread either. What Gives?
