Pros 7" form factor = perfect portability
Access to the Android market
Healthy battery life
Better specs than its 7" brethren (Galaxy Tab, etc)
Cons $500, without the stylus, is a bit steep. If that's a major factor for you, just wait - the price'll go down.
Summary I've been waiting and waiting for a great 7" tablet - and the Flyer fits the bill, in my opinion. I've only had it since the weekend but I'm IN LOVE! Why I didn't by the Blackberry Playbook: no apps, no built-in calendar or email functionality. Why I didn't buy the Galaxy Tab: weaker specs than the Flyer (memory, processor speed) and very unlikely to be upgraded to Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich. Donald Bell is just not sold on the 7" form factor and can't forgive a device for its diminutive size, yet 7" is precisely the sweet spot for someone who will be using a tablet for e-reading, the occasional web-surfing, emailing and calendar..er...referencing. 10" is not portable, not comfortable for reading. So if you're in the market for a 7" tablet, you're probably not in the market for a 10" tablet. Compared to all the 7" tablets out there, the HTC is clearly (for now!) your best option. One more thing: Honeycomb is still a work in progress, and HTC didn't want to hold off on getting a tablet into the market just so it could have Honeycomb; for now, an optimized Sense UI over Android 2.3.3 provides an elegant, streamlined experience - plus I've started to see a lot of apps optimized for the 7" tablet experience (Nook, NYTimes) - regardless of which Android operating system is running. So not having Honeycomb is really, really, not a con, as far as I'm concerned. Well done, HTC.
Pros Magic pen works excellent
Honeycomb upgrade gives a perfect tablet experience
Camera quality compares to iphone 4
Great gaming, Runs latest games such as Modern Combat 3
Easily add up additional storage through micro SD
Excellent battery time
Cons None so far
Summary Its a complete tablet with everything you can imagine. Honeycomb upgrades provides a complete tablet experience. The integrated support for megic pen is a great plus point. Its a perfect travel companion.
From watching movies, to playing the latest games such as Modern Combat 3, Dead Space, Shadowgun. It does not disappoint you.
Pros Small form makes it convenient to carry with me everywhere (which I do).
Fast single core processor beats dual cores because true multitasking isn't needed or used.
The pen for sketching on the go or jotting down notes.
Cons Marketing for the device has resulted in what looks like less support from HTC even though this is a superior machine to all other 7 inch tablets out there.
Summary I was looking into a nook color or a fire when the price dropped on this. I did the research and found that the flyer was far superior, for only a small amount more than the other tablets. Larger on board memory, expandableexternal sd slot capable of an additional 32gb. It has front and rear cameras, pen support and better market access. Basically, more memory, more options, more choices.
Pros 7" size that allows landscape and portrait typing; incorporation of audio, video, pictures, typing and scribing in Notes to Evernote great idea ...
Cons very poor audio quality; lack of hand/word recognition and easy to work video chat
Summary I returned my pre-order after I tested the product. If it was $150 less including the pen, I would have kept it due to the pretty unique functionality .... just not quite there yet ...
Pros Sense for Tablets is the best middleground between complex Honeycomb and simple iPad. The Magic Pen with Scribe is a game changer.
Cons No flash on camera, few accessories available at launch.
