HTC backs Flyer getting Android 3.0 upgrade

HTC Flyer to get Android 3.0 upgrade eventually

HTC in a brief Twitter update confirmed that it would upgrade the Flyer to Android 3.0. It would only say that the upgrade would come "when it's made available." Until now, it had only said the Flyer would ship with Android 2.3.

It's presumed, but not confirmed, that the Evo View 4G will get the same treatment.

The promise might disabuse notions of Google discouraging Android 2 to 3 upgrades. Rumors had circulated that Google wanted Android 3.0 tablets to be designed that way from scratch. HTC had said on the Flyer's debut that it had wanted to ship with 3.0 but wasn't given time by Google.
