Latest software update brings forth improved performance to the HTC Flyer
Sure there are still some people out there who decided to take the plunge by picking up the HTC Flyer despite its lack of Honeycomb, we’re sure that HTC dolled up the experience enough to make it more than usable in the meantime.

Fortunately, the Gingerbread flavored tablet with HTC’s Sense UI layered on top of it is already seeing its first software update. The new over-the-air update is being pushed out provides “improved system performance,“ which should speed certain aspects just a little but to exude an even better responsive experience. Besides the bump in performance, everything else visually remains unchanged, but nonetheless, it should keep early adopters content in the meantime.

If you haven’t received the notification just yet, you can always initiate the process manually by getting in the Android settings menu and going in the section for updates.

I don't think the Flyer is going to get Honeycomb. This was an internal decision by HTC to maximise App compatibility..

Still don't have an update.... When I click on Settings>About tablet>Software updates>Check now , I get a response that Your tablet is up to date.... Following is the current release level for my edition of the Flyer: Android version: 2.3.3 HTC Sense version: 2.1 Software number: 1.36.1540.32 If there was an update, I would expect the Software number to have changed. Can anyone with the update post what has changed?
