HTC has released its HTC Flyer Tablet in the UAE and the device will retail at AED2,999 for the WiFi/3G version with 32GB Internal memory and is now available across all leading retail chains in the country.

The HTC Flyer Tablet has a RAM of 1GB and internal storage of 32GB including a Micro SD memory card extension (SD 2.0 compatible), is weighs 415 grams and measures 195.4 x 122 x 13.2mm. The 7-inch touch-sensitive TFT display screen offers 1024 X 600 resolution, a 5 megapixel colour camera with auto focus and a 1.3 megapixel front camera.

"The HTC Flyer Tablet was created to bring its customers cutting-edge innovation in simple and natural ways that makes sense. HTC brings intelligence and innovation to the industry - bridging the gap between the segment and functional sophistication of this tablet category. With such a sleek design, accessible applications for all purposes and users, and impressive features to make a person's life easier, work or play, the HTC Flyer technology is set to impress customers completely" said Mohamed Kais Zribi, regional manager, HTC Middle East and North Africa.

The HTC Flyer is compact and light for travel and features a 1.5 GHz processor. The HTC Flyer tablet also offers Flash 10 and HTML 5 for web browsing.

"We're thrilled that HTC's first tablet is now available in Dubai and will subsequently be rolled out across the Middle East. When we started to create the HTC Flyer, we did not only want to build another gadget, but something that would change people's life. What we succeeded in achieving was a potent all‐purpose tablet that offered an unbeatable comfortable user‐friendly experience anywhere you choose to use it," said Neeraj Seth, regional marketing manager, HTC Middle East and North Africa.

The HTC Flyer is also the first tablet to feature HTC Scribe technology, which is designed to integrate natural onscreen writing with integrated innovations.

HTC Scribe is a pen that can transform into any writing tool to draw, paint, write, and retouch pictures, and can even be used as a highlighter, gathering together all the highlighted segments once the user has finished marking the document.

The HTC Flyer's Scribe technology is also designed to link audio to the notes and can add voiceover to a home-made storybook. The Scribe also allows users to take notes and capture the audio and when users tap a word in their notes, the corresponding audio plays.

The HTC Flyer comes with two cameras and two speakers, features an upload speed of up to 5.76 Mbps and download speed of up to 14.4 Mbps.

The device also has a high‐speed HSPA+ wireless capabilities, supports many video formats and has multi‐window browsing with pinch to zoom, and a quick look‐up tool that lets users tap into Wikipedia, YouTube and other web resources.

The Flyer Tablet is also equipped with an internal GPS antenna, an ambient light sensor, G-Sensor and Digital compass. The Rechargeable battery has standby time of up to 820 - 1470 and video playback of up to four hours.
