And the parade of new tablets continues. The HTC Flyer ($TBA) runs Android 2.4 with HTC's Sense interface, and packs a seven-inch touchscreen with 1024x600 resolution, a 1.5 GHz processor, 32 GB of internal storage with microSD expansion, 1GB of RAM, HSPA+/GSM cellular connectivity, a five megapixel rear camera with auto focus and a 1.3 megapixel front camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, GPS, and all the mystique and intrigue that comes with being someone who doesn't use an iPad.
With sales of its original, seven-inch Galaxy Tab not exactly setting the world on fire, Samsung's ready to try again with its big brother. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 ($TBA) offers more than just screen size improvements over its little sibling, including three-megapixel AF rear-facing and two-megapixel front-facing cameras with 720p video recording, a 1GHz dual-core processor, HSPA+ 21Mbps, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and Wi-Fi, up to 64GB of internal storage, Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Flash 10.2 support, Samsung's TouchWiz UX interface, and, of course, a 1280x800 10.1-inch touch display.
Nope, it's not an iPad. But it sure as hell looks like one. As it happens, the HP TouchPad ($TBA) feels like one too, thanks to its nearly identical screen (9.7 inches), weight (1.6 pounds) and dimensions. Setting it apart are a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor, 1.3 megapixel webcam, and HP's not-so-recently acquired webOS 3.0, which sets itself apart from iOS with its card-based interface, "true" multitasking, a HP Synergy-powered communication suite, and fancy new tricks like touch-to-share data transfer and Touchstone technology for sharing info with a webOS phone... which you probably don't have.
