There's a huge amount of negative publicity out there about the Flyer: "the screen's too small"; "it's just a big phone"; "the battery life is poor". Frankly those comments are rubbish written mostly by people who see the iPad/iPad2 as the be-all and end-all - which it isn't. Probably the best review to read is the one on Engadget which gives just about the most balanced comparison of the Flyer and iPad from someone who has both.

Firstly the screen quality. It is a way, way better screen than that provided on the iPad2. And we have an iPad2 at home as well to compare! One reason is that the pixel density ie, the number of dots available to draw a given size character, is twice that of the iPad. This means that characters are crisp and sharp. Going from an iPad to the Flyer is like going from an old smartphone with a 240x320 pixel screen to a modern one with an 800x480 resolution. I'm sure Apple will fix this in due course but, for the time being, the Flyer is much better.

Secondly, screen size. Frankly you "pays your money and makes your choice". Smaller is also lighter. An iPad2 weighs approximately 50% - yes, that's right *50%* more - than a Flyer. Do you want a brick with a large display or a device with a smaller display that is pocketable and you can take with you everywhere? Remember that the pixel resolution of the Flyer (1024 x 600) is only slightly less than an iPad (1024 x 768) so it can display almost as much information, just a bit smaller!

Thirdly, the "big phone" argument. So if the Flyer is a big phone, the iPad is an even bigger phone. The reason for choosing a tablet is to get more real-estate and see things more clearly and both devices achieve that aim. How far you want to go in size is up to you.

Fourthly, battery life.

I've had the HTC flyer for almost a month now. Being a bit of a techno-junkie I also have the iPad 2 and the Dell Streak 5 inch android.

The 7 inch flyer is, as far as I'm concerned the ideal size for everyday use. Whilst the iPad is without question the best viewing tablet probably available today, it is also large and I have rarely taken it out with me because of its size. The HTC flyer on the other hand is with me all the time and fits into a very neat compact bag for everyday use. It comes with a rather OTT white leather case, which although is excellent in quality is a bit gaudy, pity they didn't make it black or brown.

I first learnt about the flyer in the Sunday Times (I didn't even know it existed), and ordered one straightaway from Amazon even though the review (and indeed others) criticised the battery performance. I have to say this is totally unfounded and may be when the unit was upgraded to gingerbread it improved battery use. I easily get a day and a half of use.

HTC promote heavily the pen feature which allows you to write on the screen and make annotations etc. I'm sure it works very well but I've yet to see any YouTube reviews where HTC sales guys are not writing in kids crayon type sized letters. Maybe it has more use in commercial applications where templates are used on the screen and the user just checks boxes etc.

The screen is particularly excellent, very bright and can be read in sunlight (albeit reasonably difficult in direct, but no worse than my iPad 2). It's very fast to use and I love the customisation and indeed the excellent HTC sense which in version 3 is very good indeed.

A weighty little unit - on the solid side rather than cumbersome. For all the nonsense spouted on the Internet about this not running Android Honeycomb - at the moment this doesn't matter. HTC have done a great job with their Sense UI so that apps give you that 'tablet' experience. Honeycomb is apparently in the pipeline for the device anyway.

** EDIT - Now running Honeycomb. The benefits?
* Crisper UI with icons designed for tablets rather than phones
* Apps now using tablet designs rather than oversized phone designs - GMAIL split screen for instance
* You can now use the pen as a stylus to navigate / use the UI.
* I've noticed that memory management seems MUCH better under Honeycomb so the tablet never seems to struggle for memory.
** / EDIT

The basic functionality is excellent. Great native email client with faultless support for POP/IMAP and Active Sync (I'm looking at you BB Playbook - tut tut). Calendar and contacts from Active Sync come across nicely. The web browsing experience is genuinely brilliant. Flash support is good - and in browser youtube / and BBC news videos work well. I did wonder whether the 7inch screen would be big enough - but it seems fine to me. The browser is quick as well - with multi tab support.

Battery life seems quite good. For instance, I worked the tablet quite hard yesterday for browsing and Skype and still had over half the charge left at the end of the day. (nb - I used a non Market Skype apk (package) to enable video chat on the device before the official release - probably not recommended from a security point of view - but it showed how good the video chat will be when the official Android tablet version is released).
