HTC Flyer tablet spec leak: single-core Snapdragon?

Specifications and a render of the HTC Flyer have supposedly leaked, ahead of the 7-inch tablet's expected sales debut in March. According to Amobil, the Flyer will have a 1024 x 600 resolution display - putting it on a par with the Galaxy Tab and run Qualcomm's 1GHz MSM8255 processor as found in the Desire HD.

That would make it a single-core chip, rather than the dual-core processors like the Tegra 2 found in rival slates. Still, the Adreno 205 graphics would apparently be good enough to make an HDMI output worthwhile, and there's supposedly twin cameras: a 1.3-megapixel webcam for video calls over Skype, and a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and face-recognition.

Other rumored specs include HSPA connectivity, a remodeled version of HTC Sense that's been tweaked so as to feel more "desktop like", and DLNA support for streaming media. OS is Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which fits in with reports we've heard that HTC will update the Flyer at a later point to Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

A 10-inch version with integrated LTE is supposedly in the works, and will arrive in the second half of 2011. We won't know for sure whether all this is true until MWC 2011 at the earliest, however.
