HTC confirms that Honeycomb will be coming to the Flyer - no time frame though
Sure HTC’s Sense is one polished looking interface, especially when it’s one of the more favorable Android skins out there, but some might think of it as being less attractive on the tablet oriented HTC Flyer.

Some may be wondering why they decided to stick it out with Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread as opposed to Google’s tablet optimized Honeycomb experience, but it seems likely we’ll be seeing it doused with Honeycomb in the future.

According to Android Central, HTC confirmed that we will indeed see an update for Honeycomb down the road, but there is no exact time frame on when it’ll occur. Specifically, an HTC rep stated, “I can confirm that we are working to bring a Honeycomb update to Flyer in short order – however, I don’t have any specific information on what the timing may be.”

Without question, that’s music to the ears of people who are planning on picking up this tablet when it’s released some time in Q2. Needless to say that we don’t deny the beauty of Sense, but when Honeycomb is all the rage amongst tablets, it’d be hard pressed to not use one offering the most up-to-date tablet experience.
