    A Tweet from an HTC developer indicates that their new HTC Flyer tablet will indeed be getting Google's Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS. They specific mention that they will get it only when it's made available to them. It's strange that they didn't try harder to get it from Google sooner. Still, for anyone interested in the Flyer, this should be welcome news.

    I wonder if it's because Google seems to be taking control of Honeycomb. Latest rumor today suggests that Google is going for one version of Android for phones, tablets, and Google TV. That's probably a good idea, but if true, it kind of throws a wrench into open source, doesn't it? And what about innovation? I mean HTC Sense is pretty amazing. It would be a shame if companies can't customize Android on their devices.

    All that said, I don't see where the HTC Flyer is missing anything by not having Honeycomb. It's pretty impressive running on Android 2.2.
