    The HTC Flyer shows off palm rejection in this video, which is what modern Windows tablet PCs have been expected to be capable of for the last few years. This feature allows users to rest their palm on the screen while using the active digitizer stylus. Some of us may have expected this already from the HTC Flyer, but to actually see this in action to appreciate the exciting potential of this device.

    The development of active digitizers over passive digitizers has been one of the most important historical developments in tablet PC usability. HTC Flyer's implementation is interesting, because the typically auxiliary capacitive touchpanel will see a lot more use compared to typical implementations in Windows tablets, where screen elements are typically poorly designed for finger touch interaction compared to Android.

    Active digitizer technology cannot be surpassed by any other technologies for stylus related activities including drawing and writing. The usable stylus transforms the tablet into the most suitable smart-tablet for professional and academic applications compared to any other popular on the market today or the near future.
