We heard last week that HTC may be planning to release three Android based tablets this year. Well today it seems the specs have been leaked for HTC's 7" tablet rumored to be named the Flyer.

A 7-inch, 1024x600 resolution screen, which is the same as the Galaxy Tab
Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor, found in the Desire HD
HDMI port
DLNA-enabled for wireless movie/music streaming
5MP rear camera with LED flash and facial recognition
1.3MP front-facing camera for video chatting, with Skype preinstalled
At the time they received the specs, the Flyer was running Gingerbread, but Honeycomb was released shortly after, so we can't confirm which version it'll be running out-of-the-box
A remodeled version of Sense that has a "desktop" feel to it
HSPA connectivity (T-Mobile, anyone?)
There's also apparently a 10-inch tablet in the works, to compete with the iPad.
The iPad competitor will feature LTE (Verizon customers, you can get excited now) and will be in stores sometime in the second half of the year

Take these specs has 100% rumor though, nothing has been confirmed by HTC.
