HTC rumoured to be lauching the ‘Flyer’ tablet in March

HTC is set to launch three tablet PCs in the first half of 2011 according to courses sited by Taiwanese industry rumour mill, the DigiTimes.

Despite a virtual no-show of tablets at the CES ‘tablet show’ in Las Vegas, HTC will reportedly introduce a tablet called the Flyer into the US market in March according to handset component sources quoted by the DigiTimes.

The Flyer is said to resemble a large Desire smartphone and will run Android 2.3 which presumably means the tablet is a 7-inch form factor similar to the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The device is set to arrive ahead of RIM PlayBook and the Android Honeycomb-powered Motorola Xoom in April.

Interesting, DigiTimes sources claimed that the Flyer would be upgradable to Android 3.0. Such upgrades have been something of a grey area with few manufacturers committing to such a move.

HTC will then follow the Flyer with two other unnamed Android Honeycomb tablets in June, although no further details were given.
