HTC’s first attempt at an Android tablet, the HTC Flyer, came out with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and HTC Sense, but several developers have found a way to pour sweet honey on the HTC Flyer.
Paul O’Brien, MoDaco founder, has obtained a Honeycomb leak in RUU (ROM Upgrade Utility) form for the HTC Flyer. He advises to flash it at your own risk. It’s an early build so expect stability and overall performance of the Flyer using such software to be not that good.
O’ Brien says that he will release a fully tested build once he has tested it on his own HTC Flyer, which will be arriving next week.
Basing on the comments over at XDA Developers, the braver ones who [...]

It seems that HTC loves T-Mobile so much. And, once again, the two are about to launch new devices next week. That is, if we are to base our speculations on a job listing posted on TmoNews.
HTC appeared to have left very obvious clues about the launch date of the HTC Sensation 4G–it’s going to be on June 8.
