Default HTC Flyer review

Yet another tablet for you Android fans.

http://www.engadget.com/2011/05/16/htc-flyer-review/

Seems like a good device, but again, there's the pricing issue with these things.

It does seem to be very "focused" at what it does though; after watching the review you get a clear impression of what you might want to use it for, which imo is rare in the tablet segment.
It also has some unique features, compared to the competition.

They've said as much, they didn't have enough time to put Honeycomb on it so they went with the phone OS. Sounds pretty rushed to market to me.

And in the end, all this hurts the perception of Android. Everyone seems to have a different take on it. Google really needs to get some standards in place and enable people to go to Google directly for the updates. Relying in the carrier or the manufacturer to give you the latest updates is a recipe for disaster. I, for one, would be pissed if I bought and Android device, then found out I couldn't get the newest Android OS until the manufacturer released it, if it even does. Then there's the situation with the Netflix fiasco. That would be really irritating. The Netflix on Android app proves that Google needs to do something about standards for manufacturer's to follow.

Needs to? They already are, remember Google IO?

Except, when you get involved in the details the waters start to get a bit murkier...
