The HTC Flyer is an excellent device and is well overdue an update. A new one with dual or quad core CPU, more ram, higher-res display, better pen, better camera, etc, would be a pretty decent device.

HTC could have been ahead of Samsung with pen-powered android devices but I think they could lose their lead. The Asus Padfone also has a stylus, so hopefully there will be some competition in this space.
