If you don't want a lO-inch tablet and instead are looking for a slightly bigger screen than the usual smartphone, then the HTC Flyer could be the tab for you. The tablet has a 7.0 inch, 16 million colours screen which is very good in terms of visibility. The body is made of a com*bination of metal and plastic and despite being a bit on the heavy side, the Flyer looks sleek. At the back, there are two plastic patches at the top and the bottom. While the bottom one looks detachable, we suggest you let it be - it is actually the top one that hosts the camera that can be removed, letting you insert the SIM and microSD card there.

In the write mode, it uses the Evernote application. You can choose between various pen types and also the colour and width of the pen's tip. All this is available through the semicircular control panel of the Scribe application near the touch button. The pen itself has two buttons. One is a highlighter and the second is the eraser.
