HTC Flyer with HTC Scribe and Magic Pen

HTC Flyer tablet is now close to its official release in the market, which will take place on May 9. The device was often the protagonist of our pages to its technical characteristics, prices or integrated technologies. The tablet HTC provides a 7-inch diagonal display and a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, single core 1.5 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 32 GB mass storage expandable via MicroSD, WiFi and 3G wireless modules and HTC with Google Android OS 3.0 and Sense, among other improvements, offers a fully configurable lockscreen with the information that we prefer to have an eye and the programs we use most frequently, all housed in an elegant and durable aluminum monocoque.

At present, the version used is 2.3.3 Android Gingerbread, but it is already planned to update the terminal when it becomes available the latest version 3.0 Honeycomb, the first to be specifically developed by Google for the tablet. HTC Flyer, i.e. Timemark Scribe and technologies let you interact with the interface and write or draw on the screen through the use of a stylus, although the display is capacitive and resistive.

For clarity we recall that the resistive touch display belong to the first generation and provided for the exclusive use of the stylus. The screen was in fact composed of two layers, which took place between the electrical contact, the point at which pressure is exerted by just using a stylus. The device then traced the positional coordinates of the contact and communicate them to the operating system. In the capacitive screens instead electrical contact occurs at the surface of the display, making it possible to produce thinner screens, a demand for the interaction of objects using capacitive, i.e. with a turn of an electric field. Indeed, when a tap or a screen of this type the electron field is locally distorted and the device, through sensors placed in each corner of the display, detects the distortion and assigns the coordinates to the operating system.

The use of the stylus, however, allowed some significant advantages such as higher accuracy and the ability to interact writing or drawing, not just pressing buttons or by performing the gesture. For this reason, then HTC has decided to develop Scribe and Magic Pen, a pen active, powered by electromagnetic induction without the need to employ its own battery. The combination of these two technologies allows you to do many interesting things.

A text can be highlighted, but it also allow you to write notes in the margin. Scribe then its control panel from which you can choose the type of point and its thickness, as well as color. The integration with Evernote also allows you to save all the notes and the notes in the cloud server, so you can sync and accessible by any other device with the same program.

Also interesting is the Timemark function that allows you to store notes and notes in a centralized way to go and then easily retrieve them through the dedicated interface that collects all of all types (notes, notes on file, text, etc.). Timemark also allows you to record audio, such as a conference or conversation and sync with the notes that will eventually take. In this way, taking the note you can also play the sound associated with it. Recall that HTC Flyer will arrive in the  market from May 9 at a price of € 699.
