HTC Flyer Wifi-Only Gets Some Honeycomb Goodness

One of my favorite Android manufacturers, HTC said about a month ago that the HTC Flyer would be getting a Honeycomb update and late last night, early this morning they made good on that promise. All of us with the wifi-only version of the HTC Flyer can now download the Honeycomb update and start experiencing the greatness of Honeycomb.

With the update you’ll get Android 3.2, speed improvements, wallpaper lag is gone, and other goodies that come with Honeycomb. We’ve heard from many people on Twitter that the update makes their Flyer feel like it’s brand new. With it being more smooth then ever, and little to no lag on other features.

Now the question that HTC Flyer owners are going to ask is when or if it will get Ice Cream Sandwich, Android 4.0. In my opinion I don’t think there will be an official update from HTC, but I am sure our developer community will make a few custom ROM’s for Flyer owners to use and abuse. Where the Flyer is getting close to End of Life status, I really don’t see it getting Ice Cream Sandwich from HTC. But who knows, anything can happen in the world of Android.

How’s the Honeycomb update working out for you? Let us know in the comments how much you like or dislike this update.

    Man I bought a flyer from a UK retailer and it is the bloody Asian version. No honeycomb to speak of. No update from HTC Asia on when they plan to release honeycomb. Annoying to say the least…

    • I’m from Asia and i’m waiting impatiently for the honeycomb update. Its sad that other brands like samsung and motorola has their honeycomb update on their tablet where as HTC seems to be the slowest.

    For some reason, honeycomb update 3.2 drain my battery in standby mode faster than normal usage. The Battery usage app in Gingerbread that displays % of battery consumed by which apps or utility is not longer exist, so I can no longer tell what is draining my battery in standby mode,

    I’m from Asia and I still havent received any updates for honeycomb… what is taking so long?

    HTC flyer updated to 3.2 – only issue so far is some apps no longer work ‘whats app’ and that battery longevity has been shortened.
    Wondering if i should get HTC to put it back to its standard version or wait for ICS update if it is ever considered
