The HTC Flyer tablet device had started its journey with Android 2.3 Gingerbread as its OS. After that, the company had been prompt to upgrade the OS to Android 3.2 Honeycomb. HTC-Hub now reports that by this quarter, HTC will further upgrade the OS to Android 4.0 ICS. In all the upgrades up to now, HTC has not effected any major changes to its interface or screen layout. It is expected that the same would be the case for the Android 4.0 upgrade as well.
HTC isn’t the only company that’s keen to hop onto the Android ICS bandwagon. Asus and Motorola have already announced the ICS upgrade for the first and second gen Transformer devices and the XOOM tablet respectively. Of course, the latest version of the Android does come with a lot of enhancements and makes the system run faster, especially when one is browsing. This should bode well for the HTC Flyer, which (being a single core processor based device) should see a jump in its performance when loaded with Android 4.0.
