Saying that it is about time is an understatement. The HTC Flyer (international version) has had the Honeycomb update for over seven months now and finally it is available for US cellular customers as well.
How many new leaks are we going to hear about today? At least one more, it seems. We heard about a new 10inch HTC tablet called the HTC Quattro, but this looks like a 7inch being called the HTC Vertex.
Yesterday, HTC released a list of HTC Smartphones that will be getting the Google Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich update and some HTC smartphone users are still wondering why their smartphones were not on the list.
Hey HTC Flyer owners, have you been bummed out by the latest software updates for your Flyer Tablet? Well here's something to look forward to... According to an HTC rep, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update will be available in the first quarter of this year. So if you're unhappy with the latest Honeycomb update, or by the preloaded Gingerbread version, then perhaps a taste of Android's Ice Cream Sandwich will cure your HTC Flyer blues. Here's how the conversion with the HTC customer service rep went:
One device that I wasn’t sure if it would get unlocked bootloader courtesy of HTCDev.com was the flyer but it seems today it has received that privilege. This method works with all models of the Flyer Wi-Fi only, 3G but you will have to be fully updated meaning you need the latest OTA for the tool to work. Though we said all version are supported that list doesn’t include the Wimax cousin the Evo View 4G seeing as how almost every other device is supported, means it won’t be too long before it will be added to the list wouldn’t be surprised if tomorrow you were reading that the Evo View has been added. Keep in mind that all the rule still aplly to the Flyer meaning that using the tool can cause for loss of your warranty from HTC. As always those of you who are the brave and don’t care about silly warranties, head on over to HTCDev.com and give it a go. We will update this post if the Evo View becomes supported in the next couple of days so keep watch here.
