Honeycomb update for the HTC Flyer is reportedly starting to roll out across Europe

Honeycomb update for the HTC Flyer is reportedly starting to roll out across Europe
Even though we weren’t terribly saddened to find the HTC Flyer packing Android 2.3 Gingerbread as opposed to Honeycomb out of the box, seeing that HTC Sense for tablets offers a reasonable customized experience, those clamoring to see the tablet-optimized OS will surely take a liking to the reported news we’re hearing today.

From the sound of it all, it seems as though the long awaited Honeycomb software update for the 7-inchh tablet is starting to roll out – in Europe so far. Specifically, HTC Flyer users in France and Holland report that they’re started receiving the anticipated update that brings the device to software version 3.55.405.1. Rolling it out via an over-the-air process, which tallies in at a hefty 210MB download, it’s recommended that you get it while on Wi-Fi – as opposed to using cellular connectivity.

Naturally, this is great news for anyone in Europe holding dearly to the tablet – and of course, makes for a wonderful early holiday gift. However, it’s anyone’s guess at this point on when we’ll see it land stateside, but if you’re simply desperate at this point, you can always move ahead and use that leaked custom ROM from a while back.

Then again, that’s the risk you’re going to need to take if you sorely want to experience the tablet-optimized platform right now.
