HTC Flyer: first official video surfaces

HTC has posted the first official preview video for its debut tablet computer the Flyer, ahead of its launch in the spring.

Check out the Flyer in action in the clip below

The surprisingly lengthy six-minute clip focuses chiefly on the slate’s suitability for enterprise users, with most of the airtime given over to its stylus writing capabilities which means that the Flyer doubles as a notebook.

Much is also made of the “unbound” browsing experience it offers. We’re interpreting that as a not so sly dig at the fact that unlike Apple’s iPad, the Flyer offers full Flash support.

Not surprisingly, there’s nary a mention of the fact that the Flyer will ship without the tablet optimised Honeycomb iteration of Google’s Android platform, but will instead run the Gingerbread version designed for smartphones with HTC’s Sense UI slathered over the top.

Other features that didn’t make the cut in the video, but which stand out for us include a seven-inch display, a rear-mounted five-megapixel camera, front-facing 1.3-megapixel snapper for video calls and a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor.
