February 15, 2011, By Leo Xavier

HTC has just entered the tablet wars with the unveiling of its Flyer tablet at the ongoing Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The new device, which comes equipped with some impressive specs, will be available globally in the second quarter of this year.

The HTC Flyer tablet, which runs the Android Gingerbread 2.4 OS, comes with a 7 inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 and a 1.5GHz single-core CPU.

The device comes with an aluminum unibody construction, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of flash storage, and a tablet-optimized version of Sense.

You will also get a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing cam, along with a 4000mAh battery (claimed to last for four hours of continuous video playback), and a microSD card slot.

And it appears that a pressure-sensitive capacitive stylus is also included in the package.

You might not have forgotten the HTC Scribe trademark that was flying around earlier. That has turned out to be the name that the company is giving the technology that provides a “groundbreaking pen experience”. Check out the stylus in action and a lot more of the device’s features in the video posted alongside.

And HTC promises that the Gingerbread 2.4 experience will be different from that of 2.3, but we all know that it won’t be as impressive as the Honeycomb.

For not launching the device with Android 3.0, the company is saying that it did not have enough time with the latest Google OS to customize it to the full requirements of Sense.

With the tablet, you will also get OnLive cloud gaming that is coming in the form of an app, and the HTC Watch app will help you to stream and download movies.
