Mobile World Congress 2014: HTC Flyer2:38 /
What's different about HTC's first tablet? It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, not Google's new Honeycomb OS.
-Hey, everyone. I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com and we're here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, where HTC just unveiled their first tablet, the HTC Flyer, and we've got Nathan here from HTC who's gonna give us a quick rundown of the features. -So this is Flyer. On the front here, you can see we've got a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera. If I flip it around, we also see we've got a 5-megapixel camera on the back and an aluminum unibody design, 3.5-mm jack for your headphones, and then just at the bottom here, we've got our connector for HDMI and charging all in one, so keep the body nice and slim. Here I'm gonna show our updated Sense User Experience, so just very quickly I can show you. If I tilt the screen, even our widgets animate in 3D, really come out of the screen. And it really comes to life using our Notes application, so, when I'm creating a new note, you can see that I can actually associate the note to a particular calendar appointment and then anything that I record or take down will be associated with that calendar invite so I can record and then I can write on the screen, and you can see down here that I have this little pinup and it's in green, that means I can interface with that and here I can change the color, I can change the style of the pen, and I can change the size, and I can draw on the screen here using a fountain pen style, tap on the screen and I can type some text. I can also capture an image then this is where the buttons on the pen come into play so using our Scribe technology, I can press and hold this top button here and I can start to erase what I've written. The bottom one here, I press and hold and I can actually select text within the note itself. Once I'm happy, stop recording and then this will automatically upload to the web so I can refer to it at a later date. I can even go into my calendar and find that it will be attached to the calendar event itself. -So when can we expect the HTC Flyer to hit the streets? -The Flyer is gonna be hitting the markets in Q2 this year. -Okay. Will that include the US? -I can't tell you right now. -Oh. Alright. Well, it looks like a very cool tablet. We're excited to look at it. Again, that's the HTC Flyer. Thank you, Nathan, and I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the HTC Flyer.
