HTC wouldn't let anybody touch the new tablet today, but a rep gave me a close up demo, and showed me what I wanted to see. I liked what I saw. You can see said demo .
The tablet is small-more the size of a than an iPad. The screen is seven inches across. It's also light, weighing in at only 530 grams, lighter than all of the other new tablets I've seen at the show. To me, the size of the Flyer and its seven-inch display seems just right. But this is a matter of taste.
Hands On With the HTC Flyer
The Flyer has a nice brushed-steel body and it tapers at the edge, which makes the device seem even smaller. The Tab, by contrast, has squared off edges.
But as more and more Android tablets come out, it's getting harder and harder for tablet makers to from the others in the market. The main differentiating point so far seems to be the size of the device itself--this can only last so long as tablets of all sizes and shapes appear. But HTC has done some things with the Android UI that I hadn't seen in other tablets.
