HTC commences Honeycomb rollout for the HTC Flyer


Honeycomb for the HTC Flyer has arrived! Earlier today HTC started pushing out a new 210 MB update (version 3.55.405.1) to the HTC Flyer that delivers Honeycomb to HTC’s first tablet device. For now, the update is only being pushed out to the 3G enabled version of the tablet, which is only sold in Europe. Those of you who own the WiFi-only version of the Flyer will need to wait a little bit longer in order to get a taste of Honeycomb.

Ready for some ‘sweet’ news? The GSM version of the HTC Flyer tablet, available in Europe, is beginning to receive updates to Honeycomb beginning today! Honeycomb brings a ton of improvements to Android on tablets, including the latest version of HTC Sense for Tablet with enhanced Internet browsing, Mail, Calendar and more all optimized for the 7HTC

While it’s exciting to see HTC finally deliver on the promise of a Honeycomb update for the HTC Flyer, we’re already looking forward to the future. With Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) already in the wild, we can’t help but wonder how long it will take HTC to send out the next update for the device. If HTC keeps things moving at the same pace, ICS for the HTC Flyer may be available by July of 2012.

Does Honeycomb on the HTC Flyer change your opinion of HTC’s Scribe enabled 7-inch tablet?
