I like the HTC flyer, it is a good size for traveling and well constructed. My daughter really likes using the pen. I wonder if it is getting a bit old now and hence the price reduction?
#6
I love my HTC Flyer but it's the 3G version which is more useful on the move. Quite heavy but a good size.
For most people they would be better off buying a refurbished iPad 2 for £259,

The 32gb also has a honeycomb Rom with full phone functionality including text messaging quite a good device really

Fantastic little tablets, everything works as it should, have some heat.

is this a phone as well ? am a bit confused...can some one shed some light....
thanks
#10
Not bad but the Galaxy Tab Plus at Expansys is a better deal - same price, dual core Exynos chip and ICS in the future.

It's not, no. It's just a tablet.

With the Galaxy Tab 2 7" available from £199 I'd say this flyer, whilst not a bad bit of kit, is now still too expensive considering what else is out there. It's an opinion, and it's a personal one. You pays your money and make your choice I guess :)
#13
Well it's getting on a bit now and single core but still great little tablets imo - if you update to honeycomb (or get the 32gb version) make sure you change the launcher and skin it using ADX or Go as this makes a real difference to the functionality and usability of it and gives you some of the ICS type features. 3g one is handy but tbh I have a Galaxy s2 and if i am out and about can just use the wifi hotspot option - most people have their phones on them 24/7 these days anyway!
You can also use it as a phone if you have the know how :{ (or the ability to search on Google, lol!)
heat.

I have this and the Tab Plus, tab Plus is better because of dual core, the Flyer sometimes lags. ICS due out by August too.

It's turned into a glorified Sonos remote now

True, it is just a tablet, but if you are technically inclined there is a ROM available that enables the 3G version to be used as a phone. However, the process is complex, involving downgrading to Gingerbread, rooting the tablet and installing a new rom. A process that almost certainly would invalidate a warranty.

How is this any better than the Aurora II @ £139?

It doesn't have Ainol embossed on the front? ;) To be fare, the Aurora II is a lot of spec for little money. That said, I have the Flyer and I think it's a great bit of kit. Excellent build quality, superb screen, fast enough with everything I've thrown at it (bar a few youtube videos which have been a bit jerky), I'm a fan of htc sense so that's a bonus for me and the stylus is great to use especially with honeycomb which integrates it with more apps, I'd recommend it to anyone.

i didn't think the process wasn't difficult i have only rooted and installed one other device before the flyer and i did it. Yeah it was longer with a few steps, but if you can follow a step by step guide you will be alright. TBH rooting and installing custom rom even if it invalids never stops 1000s of modders for 100s of devices doing it to thier device ;)

That's what I was thinking too - dual core, IPS etc
#20
Aurora II all the way with, option of keyboard and.dongle at substantially lower than this.... Cold from me... Would also say the galaxy tab beats this..... Don't rely on getting the ics any time soon as most manufacturers are known for being slow to release... Xoom screen I thought was rubbish ... I would either get a Aurora II or spend cash on Samsung at the minute... If I was pay sub 200 I would want minimum 9.7or ips screen at least.

My Aurora II arrived yesterday. So far very very impressed. The screen is an absolute joy and it is fast and super responsive. I can't see why you would shell out another £60 for the HTC
#22
I WANT MY AURORA 2.. but how do i hide the word AINOL? is a case mod possible? (i was thinking sticker)
#23
it should arrive next week *fingers crossed*
#24
Hot for the tablet.
cold for the price.

i have 2 units of 3G Flyer. This tab really can make a call using Gingerbread. But if not mistaken there is custom firmware for Honeycomb that enable the phone function as well.
#26
Seems a bit steep to me too. I'm waiting for my Ainol too, seems better specced (hd out, ics, twin core) at a cheaper price. So not hot and not cold from me.

Seriously, avoid Expansys at all costs! I ordered a phone case at end of April, due to arrive 4 days later. First they sent the last one to someone who placed their order after me, and now they keep stringing me on with constant comments of 'oh, it will be in stock next week!' And every time I complain, they treat it as a new case: 'I'm sorry to hear that you are having problems. Send me your order number and I'll look into it for you.'

Bloomin' useless! :-(
#28
The Google annual conference is next week and it's likely they'll announce/launch a really cheap Asus manufactured tablet. Also, Amazon are about to lower the price of the Fire and launch more, cheap tablets. I'd hold on a for a few weeks and see what shakes out before buying one.
#29
I think you really have to want the pen feature as there are either cheaper choices with similar performance, or higher spec for not much more.
