HTC Flyer Honeycomb Screenshots and Instructions Appear

In case you were all busy preparing for this holiday weekend, Friday we brought news regarding Honeycomb on the HTC Flyer. What happened is a RUU build of Honeycomb 3.2 with Sense UI for tablets was leaked for the HTC Flyer, a device we still weren't sure would even get the update to Honeycomb in the first place. MoDaCo's Paul O'Brien and many others have been working hard and things are developing already.

HTC Flyer Receives Honeycomb Upgrade [Leak]

Several weeks ago we were holding the HTC Flyer for the first time, a brand new tablet running a unique version of HTC's Sense user interface on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, all in a mid-sized tablet form factor with a special "Scribe" stylus for on-screen writing. We got to look at this device as the HTC Flyer (a Wi-fi version of the tablet) and the HTC EVO View, a WiMAX-capable black instead of white plastic casing version. Now what we've got coming down the underground pipeline is a Honeycomb upgrade for the full tablet experience!

HTCdev, your new home for Bootloader Unlocking

It's a good day for all you HTC-specific developers out there as the three letter manufacturer of Android devices has opened its doors to their HTC OpenSense program through HTCdev. You can access this portal by heading to HTCdev.com, the same place you may have discovered and signed up at approximately one year ago when the site itself first popped up. What HTCdev will be now is a central online location for HTC developer engagement and growth, one place for all HTC-specific developers to speak with one another and grow using each-others ideas and helping one another work for a better HTC future.

HTC Flyer Desktop Dock hits Best Buy pre-order

The official HTC Flyer Desktop Dock has shown up for pre-order at Best Buy, with availability expected in 1-2 weeks. Supporting the 7-inch Flyer in portrait orientation, the dock errs on the simple side when it comes to connectivity. On the back there's apparently a single USB connector that will work with either an AC adapter to charge the Flyer, a USB sync cable to hook it up to your PC or Mac, or an MHL HDMI adapter to output the tablet's display to a TV or projector. Unfortunately you don't get a native HDMI port, which seems something of a missed opportunity, and there's no mention of even a 3.5mm audio output for using the dock as a media player station. In fact, your $49.99 basically gets you a more straightforward way to prop up your Flyer and recharge it, and HTC doesn't even include a USB cable or AC adapter from the sound of things. The seemingly illuminated button ring on the back is something of a mystery, but we're guessing it's a charge indicator. [via Pocketables]

HTC Flyer tablet with 3G hits FCC headed for T-Mobile

Back in late May, we posted up our review of the HTC Flyer with WiFi only. We figure the tablet wasn’t for everyone, but those wanting to be able to write notes on the tablet will appreciate the optional pen. We also mentioned at the time that 3G versions of the tablet were coming and that 3G tablet has now hit the FCC for its needed approvals. The tablet appears to be heading to the T-Mobile network.

X-Men by Konami for Android Review

What's something I did not expect today but am undeniably glad that it's arrived in my apps folder? Why, Konami's original version of X-Men for the arcade, of course, that mega-giant arcade console game that 6 people could stand around with their joystick and three buttons for movement and attack, the one that everyone liked to play in the early 1990s, the late 1990s, and of course now here in the early and late 2000s and 2010s. You may be unable to find one of these setups in your local arcade today, but what you CAN grab today instead is this mobile version from the Android Market - pixels ahoy and mutant battles ahead!
