HTC Flyer Dock up for disappointing pre-order

HTC's docking station for the Flyer tablet has turned up for pre-order in the US, with Best Buy listing the cradle ahead of delivery in 1-2 weeks time. Pocketables spotted the $49.99 accessory, which holds the Flyer in portrait orientation and basically provides a pass-through for the USB connector on the bottom edge of the slate. Unfortunately, that means the dock as a whole is pretty underwhelming.

HTC Puccini tablet likely delayed plus third slate axed?

HTC may "feel very good" about the sales performance of the HTC Flyer, but according to Chinese reports the company has decided to cut its tablet program for the second half of 2011 from two devices to just one.

Meanwhile, Seiche dismissed suggestions that Microsoft's partnership with Nokia might negatively impact HTC's Windows Phone plans, or indeed drive the company away from the platform.

HTC Flyer Review

HTC Flyer Review

It's been a long time since we've seen an HTC tablet: the HTC Shift, in fact, all the way back in 2008. Even then the company didn't play by the normal rules, pairing Windows Vista and Windows Mobile on a single device. Now, it's the turn of the HTC Flyer to shake things up once more, and the talking point today is whether a slate with a stylus can compete when fingers are in fashion. 7-inch star or 'droid dud? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC Flyer Unboxing & First Impressions [Video]

Android tablets aren't exactly in short supply these days. As well as the current big-name Honeycomb slates, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Motorola XOOM and ASUS Eee Pad Transformer there's no shortage of low-cost alternatives and no-brand upstarts.
