HTC Flyer Honeycomb Android 3.2 update leaked

I have to give credit to HTC for sticking to their promise of updating the HTC Flyer to Honeycomb in a timely manner. The company is apparently on the verge of rolling out this massive update because a beta version of it has just find its way on the internet and can already be installed (painful process) if you own one and wish to mess around with your beloved tablet. As I noted in my HTC Flyer review the device initially shipped with Android 2.3 because Google required OEMs to use NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chipset on their tablets (their was no code compatible with other SoCs). Now that Android 3.X can be run on Qualcomm’s offerings HTC managed to make it working on the relatively modest single core MSM8255 clocked @ 1.5GHZ (the same one found in the HTC Titan and probably other high-end Mango handsets).


What I would like to see next is performance comparisons between the Flyer running Honeycomb (Android 3.2) and other conventional Tegra 2 powered tablets and against the soon to be launched HTC JetStream powered by the Qualcomm MSM8260.
