The Samsung Galaxy Tab showed the world how much a seven inch Android tablet could do and about six months later HTC tried to do the same with its seven inch Flyer. It features support for a capacitive stylus that is sold separately for $80 and does not have adequate software to warrant it. So how does the Flyer match up to the Galaxy Tab? Find out below.

Sure the specs on the HTC Flyer are pretty good with its 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, but reviews find it to be sluggish. At $350 the Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi is just a much better value than the $500 Flyer.
