HTC Flyer hardware tour Video

I’ve just uploaded a hardware tour video of the HTC Flyer Android tablet showing you how the device physically looks like and the build quality (full specs here). The unibody aluminum chassis is reminiscent of the iPad but the Flyer is a lot smaller because of its 7″ screen. HTC really did a good job here in terms of build quality and I was pleasantly surprised by the screens viewing angles. The device, unlike all other Android tablets on the market has an active digitizer allow the use of a stylus thanks to the N-Trig G 3.5 chipset. The only major flaw is the proprietary micro-usb connector. Yes, HTC did it again but this time it’s even worst than before because you just can’t plug-in a regular micro-usb at all unlike past HTC devices where a normal mini-usb could still be used on the HTC ExtUSB connectors The connector is apparently HTC’s new proprietary ExtMicroUSB connector and it actually works with regular micro-usb cables. Oddly enough my old HTC HD2 cable wasn’t fitting but my Samsung ones correctly pug into it. Check out the 7 minutes long video after the break:

    What are you talking about? I have been using regular MicroUSB cables of my cellphone. My Flyer’s charger cables are STILL in the plastic bags that they are in, UNOPENED. and these aren’t proprietary connectors, these are new standard called MHL. Many new cellphones have these, Samsung Infuse 4G comes to mind immediately.

    The connector is apparently HTC’s new proprietary ExtMicroUSB connector (MHL compatible) and it indeed actually works with regular micro-usb cables. BTW a regular MHL micro-USB connector looks identical to any other micro-usb connector unlike HTC’s ExtMicroUSB stuff we have here.
